Hannah Captures Conference, District Titles
Lakewood High’s Tyler Hannah continues to bolster his case as one of the best track and field athletes in the school’s history as the senior added three conference titles and two District titles to his growing accomplishments. Hannah won the 110 and 300 meter hurdles at the Southwest Conference Championships, where he was defending champ for both, and gave a repeat performance at Districts the following weekend.
Tyler was also the anchor on the 4x400 relay of himself, Devon Brown, Jack Hueter and Cormac Peppard-Kramer that came from behind to clinch the fourth and final qualifying spot for Regionals, which will be held May 22 and 24 in Youngstown. Junior Peppard-Kramer also advanced in the 800 meters with a third-place finish.
On the girls’ side for Districts, junior Christina Auck set a school record on her way to finishing 5th in the shot put. Freshman Teeghan McGann placed 5th in the 800 meters, completing against a field consisting entirely of seniors.
Congratulations to all the athletes who competed and to coaches Mike Dow and Stephanie Toole and their staffs for their guidance and support.
