On Friday, April 20, the Indian Hill track teams headed west to participate in the Ross Invitational, and take on the challenge of a few tough and larger schools like Elder, Oak Hills, Ross and Mason. The competition was fierce, but two Indian Hill athletes, Joe Murdock and Anna Podojil, had outstanding nights.
For the first time in Anna’s young high school track and field career, she took on four individual events, long jump, 100M, 200M and 400M. Anna stepped up big time. She won all four events, scored 40 points for her team, and her performances look effortless.
Joe Murdock’s event, 3200M, was the second to the last event, and his plan was to use the stiff competition to help push his pace, and run a personal record. Joe led the race the entire way, set a new personal record, and broke the 20 year old school record when he crossed the finish line in 10:00.37.

It's rare for Track & Field records to be broken in April, just when cold weather legs are beginning to loosen up.
It's even more rare when High School records are broken by freshmen, especially in events like the 400m, where strength is required to shake the bear off your back in the grueling final 100meters.
Last week, at Finneytown High School, that's exactly what happened when IHHS freshman Anna Podojil crossed the finish line first in the 400m race in a blazing 58.03 seconds breaking Melissa Pope's 36 year old record by 0.37 seconds
