Senior Jamie Annis left her mark on girls track this season at Big Walnut.
Junior Cole Stark looks to build on his success in 2015 with the Golden Eagles.
Annis mounted the podium for the second straight year at the Girls Division I OHSAA State Track Meet, taking third place in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 0:14.78 seconds on Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on the campus of The Ohio State University.
“Jamie had a great season! We are all so very proud of what she accomplished this year,” Big Walnut head coach Joe Evener said of his All-Ohio athletes. “The work she was able to do with hurdle coach “Red” Edwards in three short years is nothing short of incredible. Her performance at the state meet was awesome! She continued to prove that we may be one of the smallest schools in Division I, but that our athletes and coaching staff are among the most talented and hardest working in the state.”
Annis, who finished in fourth place at the 2013 State meet, moved up a notch as she placed third behind Canal Winchester senior Jocselyn Powell who swept both hurdle events, winning the 100 with a time of 0:13.98 seconds and the 300-meter event in 0:42.08 seconds. Withrow’s Arbia Williams was second in 0:14.50 seconds.
