The 2016 IHHS Track and Field season has been special, and after this past weekend's Ohio HS State Championships, it will go down as perhaps the most memorable season in school history.
The record setting performances of sophomore Joe Murdock and freshman Anna Podojil took them both to the 2016 Ohio State T&F Championships' Jesse Owens Stadium, and the IHHS records kept falling in Columbus.
Anna was one of only 4 D2 girls in Ohio to triple qualify for State in the 100, 200, and 400m races. Only 2 of the 4 then qualified for the State finals in all 3 races, Anna and junior phenom Regan Clay of Rossford.
Podojil took it to another level in Columbus, breaking her own IHHS record at 400m in 55.83, good for 4th place in the state.
