ROSSBURG — If it has an engine, Kyle Busch has a good shot at getting it across the finish line first.
Busch is comfortable in any kind of race car, making his win at Eldora Speedway in the Feed the Children Prelude to the Dream on Wednesday night a natural extension of a strong five-year run at the rural Ohio dirt track.
COLUMBUS — The celebration began at home plate and then found its way down the first base line in the form of Minster players leaping into a pile.
The Minster baseball team is king of the hill in Division IV again.
COLUMBUS — Derek Collins just couldn't help it.
The Minster senior broke into a grin as wide as the lead he had over the next closest competitor with 50 meters left to go on the final leg of the boys 4-by-400 meter relay team.
Minster's championship relay team could savor closing out the Division III state track and field meet with a victory even before the race was over.
COLUMBUS — Not every victory need be accompanied by a rise to the top of the podium at the state track meet.
Sometimes the consistency of a three-year run of excellence like the one Kayla Wuebker completed on Friday or the perseverance to get back to the state meet and excel after a disappointing hiatus like Wapakoneta’s Megan Hayzlett displayed are achievement enough.
COLUMBUS — The Minster baseball team’s line-up cranked out 14 hits and wallopped Tinora 12-2 in a Division IV state semifinal.
Minster (25-6) will now play for back-to-back state championships when the Wildcats square off for the Division IV crown with Cuyahoga Heights (25-4)on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Huntington Park.
