Ohio began its outdoor season over the weekend in Oxford, Ohio, at the Blizzard Buster. The Bobcats were one of many teams that traveled to compete in several events hosted by Miami.
The meet took place all day last Friday and the Bobcats managed to place in seven different events. The most successful events for the Bobcats were the 1500m, the 3000m and field events discus and javelin.
Although many teams did not have enough athletes participating to have overall team placings, Ohio showed up and saw plenty of success in its first outdoor meet of the spring season.
The Bobcats had a number of impressive finishes, including fifth year Autumn Mohan’s fourth place finish in discus with a throw of 41.09 meters. Mohan, Jordan Baith and Millie Ryan all recorded personal records in javelin with Baith finishing sixth, throwing 26.01 meters. Mohan placed eighth at 25.54 meters and Ryan threw 21.85 meters.
Ohio also placed in two more events, the 1500m and the 3000m. Sara Doughman placed seventh overall in the 1500m with a time of 4:45.88 and teammate Kenna Loveless placed fifteenth with a time of 4:56.71.
