EATON TWP. — Three area seniors are making the most of their final high school track seasons.

Keystone’s Emily Peters and Jenna Quillen and Vermilion’s Hannah Bartlome had monster days Saturday at the Division II district meet, each qualifying to the Lexington regional in four events.

Peters led Lorain County girls with victories in the 100- and 200-meter dashes to become the first Keystone girl to win both events at districts.

She used a dominating start to clock 12.63 in the 100 and beat Brookside junior Tyller Holley (12.90). Peters went 25.67 to defeat Bartlome (25.86) in defending her title in the 200.

“It was a good day. I’m excited about it,” said Peters, who was All-Ohio in the 200 last year. “I felt good when I came out of the blocks (in the 100). It was hard for me to tell exactly where I was at, but I felt good. It was a good start.”

Peters also made it to regional as a member of the third-place 800 and 400 relays which had times of 1:49.98 and 52.20.

Quillen was second in the 100 (15.39) and 300 (45.65) hurdles, events she won last year. Orrville sophomore Trinniti Hall (15.33) won the 100 hurdles and Orrville sophomore Jessica Eby (44.88) took the 300.

“I had a good start in the 100 hurdles, but the girl from Northwestern (Rachel Mahr) and I bumped elbows hard going over the second flight,” Quillen said. “I lost my balance but gained it back and just went after it. I know I can run a lot faster time than I did after what happened.”

Quillen’s times in both races were better than her winning times from a year ago.

“I knew Jessica would be tough to beat,” Quillen said of the 300 hurdles. “She finished right behind me at state last year. I didn’t break my stride at all. I went after it. The thing I can do now is stay lower over the hurdles and just be a lot smoother. It takes competition like that to really pull out the drive. It did that for me so it makes me happy knowing that I can still run a lot faster.”

Quillen also qualified third in the long jump (16 feet, 11 inches) behind Bartlome and Eby. She advanced to regionals in high jump with a fourth-place finish Thursday at 4-10.

Bartlome jumped 18-7¼ in the long jump, destroying the 1989 meet record of 17-5¾ set by Olmsted Falls’ Amy Ashhurst. She also broke the 1977 school record of 18-5¼ set by Cathy Masin.

Consistency was key for Bartlome, who had jumps of 18-5½ and 18-7¼ to go with a foul in prelims. She came back to leap 18-4, 17-4 and 18-6 in the finals.

“I’ve long-jumped since freshman year but relays were always my second and third event after high jump,” Bartlome said. “Now that our relays aren’t what they used to be, I started long-jumping more.”

Bartlome won the West Shore Conference long jump title with a mark of 18-1¼. Her previous best from junior year was 17-1¾ when she placed second at district, just a quarter inch behind Keystone’s Brittany Gates.

“It’s all in my steps,” Bartlome said. “The faster you run, the more momentum you have. It’s all about getting your legs out. I don’t know, I haven’t been jumping like this before but I’m glad it’s right now when it really matters.”

Bartlome also qualified to regional with a third in high jump (5-0) and as a member of the fourth-place 800 relay (1:50.04).

Lutheran West senior Michaela Bierly of North Ridgeville led the Longhorns to a second-place finish behind defending champ Orrville, 154-87.

Bierly won the 3,200 (11:51.98) and was a member of the winning 1,600 relay (4:16.25), as well as the third-place 3.200 relay (10:30.81) that qualified Thursday.

Keystone tied West Salem Northwestern for third with 70 points. It equaled the Wildcats’ best district performance from a year ago. Vermilion was sixth with 48 points.

“I thought we might finish second,” Keystone coach Jeff Holzhauer said. “For the most part, the girls did very well. There were a couple places where we might have qualified and didn’t. “

Junior Brandon Cole led the Vermilion boys to a third-place finish, one of the top performances in program history. Cole won the 300-meter hurdles in a personal-record 40.38 over Norwayne senior Kaleb Harris (40.49).

“Our coach (Dave Domonkos) gave the team a bunch of inspirational quotes yesterday at practice,” Cole said. “The one that stuck in my head was about how the will to win comes from within. That’s all that kept going through my head today.”

Cole also finished second in the 110-meter hurdles to Triway sophomore Mason Plant (15.57-15.66) and third as a member of the 800 relay (1:32.93).

“My form was better,” Cole said. “I was leaning more toward each hurdle and powering through it.”

Orrville defended its boys title with 115 points, while Norwayne (68) was second and Vermilion edged Northwestern for third, 62.5-62. Firelands was sixth (54.5).
