On April 5th, the Troy Trojans hosted 18 teams, including Beavercreek, in the Herb Hartman Invitational, the second meet of the year for the Beavers. Both our women’s and men’s teams placed second overall as the men lost to Wayne and the women lost to the home team, Troy. Many Beavers placed well is their respective events, but only three won first in their events: Damien Bonds, Emma Johnson, and Stephanie Pierce.

Bonds won both the long jump and the high jump with distances of 21-00.50 ft. and 6-06.00 ft. He also competed in a third event, the 110m hurdles, which he placed second in. Johnson won the 2000m steeplechase with a time of 8:30 as she beat the second place finisher by over 30 seconds. Pierce won the 800m run with a time of 2.22.61, finishing right ahead of freshman beaver Ashtyn Gluck. Not only did Beavercreek have four first place finishes, but they also had 17 top three finishes which helped them take second place. One freshman, Andrew Radford, ran the steeplechase for the first time and said “it was very mentally demanding” but “I liked it overall even though it was a tough event.”

This meet starts a long stretch of meets for Beavercreek as they will participate in seven over the next two weeks as long as the weather allows them to. Beavercreek’s next meet will take place on April 11th as all freshman and sophomores will travel to Wayne in the Wayne 9/10 invite.
