RIVERSIDE — The Carroll track and field teams combined to qualify to state in a total of four events from the Division I (boys) and II (girls) Regional Track and Field Championships.

It is the 14th season in a row with at least one state qualifier for Carroll.

The boys team finished in 18th out of 64 teams in the competition held at Wayne High School. The Patriots have the second smallest enrollment in the region for the D-I level. The top 4 finishers from each region (four regions across the state) plus the next two best times or marks from all four regions qualified to the state championships. The top eight in each event are considered all-region.

The following were the boys D-I state qualifiers (finished in Top 4 and also earned all-region honors for finishing in the top eight).

Sammy Deep – long jump (second 22 feet, 10.5 inches). Deep also broke the school record to qualify. It was previously held by Michael Nwanwko who jumped 22 feet, 8.25 inches at the D-I regional meet in 2011.

Jack Agnew — 3200 meter run (fourth in 9:16.49).

The 3,200 relay team of Seth Tivakaran, Jack Agnew, Neil Tivakaran, and Logan Arnold earned all-region honors with a seventh-place finish in 8:03.98.

The girls team competed in the Piqua regional. Carroll finished in 15th out of 70 with 15 points. This was the fourth time in the last six regional championships that the Patriots finished in the top 15.

The following were the girls D-II state qualifiers (finished in Top 4 and also earned all-region honors for finishing in the top eight).

3,200 relay team of Ruby Gross, Maggie Poor, Sophia Bruhn, and Grace Braun (fifth in 9:43.19) qualified as the second at-large team with the second fastest time in the state after the top four from each region. The team also broke the junior school record. The previous record was by Denise Schutte, Nichole Moorman, Dana Duckro, and Lynda Wourms, who ran a 9:55.9 in 1998.

Ruby Gross – 800 run (fourth in 2:19.07).

Girls All-Region Honors were earned by Braun (sixth in the 800 in 2:20.01); Meredith Goecke (seventh in pole vault at 9 feet, 0 inches); Bruhn (eighth in the 3,200 in 11:52.37); and the 1,600 relay team of Meredith Goecke, Ruby Gross, Rachel Gervais, Grace Braun (eighth in the 1,600 run in 4:12.43).
