Spring sports are off and running and not a whole lot has been sorted out just yet. One thing that's a positive for athletes and coaches that the weather has cooperated for the most part. A lot of baseball and softball teams have upwards of four or five games in during the first week, which is a good thing. Track, meanwhile, has times already dropping a little bit each week and marks are improving in the field events.
I would be remiss, if I didn't point out the efforts of River High's D.J. Duke and Barnesville's Stephanie Morgan in the sport of track and field. Duke established a new all-time Ohio Valley standard in the shot put with a throw of 60-ft-0 1/2. Morgan, meanwhile, continues to dominate the local distance circuit. She has posted Ohio Valley best marks of 5:00.0 in the 1600 and 2:10 in the 800 already.
The St. John girls are also off to a flying start. The Lady Irish have claimed both the UL Invitational and Tyler Consolidated Invite crowns thus far. Again this season, they are getting points from everywhere on the track and in the field. Whether it's distance, sprints, hurdles or field events the Lady Irish are scoring in bunches. This week they take part in the Bellaire Girls Invitational and then the Shadyside Relays the following week.
