The Centerville Girls Track Team concluded its Indoor Track season with several outstanding performances at the OATCCC Indoor Track and Field Championship held on Saturday, March 16th at the University of Akron.
Three Centerville athletes received All-Ohio recognition for their efforts. Junior Nicole Broner finished 8th in the Triple Jump by leaping a personal best of 32’4″, sophomore Alexa Jennings continued her strong indoor season by capturing 5th in the 800 and once again breaking her own school record, and freshman Lainey Studebaker came from behind in the last lap of the 1600 to also post a 5th place finish with an impressive time of 5:17.
In addition, the 4×800 team of Jennings, Studebaker, Christine Zavakos and CC Salzman ran a school record Indoor time of 9:49, but came up a bit short with its 10th place finish, and Junior Sydney Kay captured a 13th in the pole vault.
Head Coach Mark Bohardt was thrilled with the performances. “I believe that this is the first year since we began competing during the indoor season that we have placed in three events. When you look at the entire Indoor Season, I believe that these performances not only typify the efforts of the girls and the coaches, but also are hopefully an indicator of how we will do in the Outdoor Season.”
The Elks begin their Outdoor Season when they compete at Tipp City on Saturday, March 30th.

The Centerville Girls Track Team continued to raise eyebrows and to put themselves in good shape for the State Indoor Championship in March with quality performances at their last two indoor meets.
At the Cedarville High School meet held at Cedarville University on February 2nd, the Elks scored an impressive total of over 70 points. Leading the way for the Elks was Sophomore Alexa Jennings who cruised to a huge victory with a 2:17.6 clocking in the 800. This time, which is just a second over Alexa’s career best, puts Alexa in great shape to qualify for the State Indoor Meet. In addition, Junior Larissa Johnson continued her excellent indoor season with a strong jump of over 32’ in the Triple Jump and Sydney Kay placed second by Vaulting 10’. Both girls should see themselves in the mix at the State Indoor Meet.
On February 16th, the Elks found themselves back on the track at Ohio State University. Solid performances helped the Elks once again score over 60 points. Johnson led the way by placing in four events, the Hurdles, Triple Jump, Long Jump, and the 4×400. This meet also saw a number of new athletes competing and placing for the first time. Isis Trotman and Reshanna Simon both placed in the Weight Throw, Melissa Rintoul ran a nice time of 2:38 in the 800, and Freshmen Emma Anderson, Alissa Truscelli and Kasey O’Grady all showed promise in a number of events. However, the race of the day came from Freshman Lainey Studebaker. Studebaker’s time of 5:25 in the 1600 not only allowed her to capture 2nd in that event but it also propelled her into strong contention for a slot at the State Indoor.
Head Coach Mark Bohardt has been very pleased with the direction of the team and the results up to this point. “When you consider that we have done very few workouts on the track, you can’t help but be optimistic about the potential of our team. I expect veterans like Jennings, Zavakos, Salzman, Etson, Callahan and Bush to take care of business. I know what to expect from them. However, at this time of the year, the real excitement for the coaches is seeing the new athletes perform and seeing what they can add to our team. Based on what we’ve seen, we are very excited about the rest of the Indoor and the Outdoor Season.”
The Lady Elks compete again on March 2nd at the University of Findlay, their last qualifying meet before the State Indoor Meet.
