Athletics: Ohio continued its outdoor season at the Raleigh Relays

Ohio participated in the Raleigh relays over the weekend along with many other teams from across the country. The meet was hosted by North Carolina State and lasted three days with strong showings for Ohio.

Ohio didn’t have top finishers in the events, but they still put in stellar times and set new personal bests. The strongest events for the Bobcats were the shot put and the discus. Autumn Mohan had a great performance at last weekend’s Blizzard Buster and she was even better this weekend. In the shot put, Mohan and teammate Millie Ryan both had season best throws at 12.74m and 11.72m. The two also improved greatly on discus with Mohan throwing 40.61m and Ryan throwing a season best at 37.34m.

In the 100m, Josie Knierim and Taniah Stephens finished one behind the other with Knierim in 12.41 and Stephens in 12.58. Both also competed in the 200m, with Stephens finishing at 25.57 and Knierim just behind at 25.58.

Stephanie Pierce finished first among the Bobcats in the 1500m with a time of 4:34.12 with two other teammates following close behind. Alyssa Christian came in with a time of 4:39.65 and Madelyn Bartolone with 4:55.95.

Unlike the opening Blizzard Buster, this weekend the Bobcats competed in the 3000m steeplechase. Carina Weaver competed in the event and finished with a time of 11:07:51.

Finally, the Bobcats ran the 5000m and had three finishers: Alyssa Mason, Kelsi Harris and Theresa Hagey. Mason led the three with 17:12:70 and the others followed with 17:15:09 and 17:28:10.

Ohio will participate in the Oliver Nikoloff Invitational this coming weekend.
