GMC Track Champions


The Mason Men's Track Team had a great night this past Friday at the 2017 GMC Track and Field Championships at Mason. The event was a close battle with the Aves of Sycamore and somehow, someway the Comet boys captured their 10th GMC title in a row. 

All night the score went back and forth between the two GMC rivals.  In the final few races of the night it was within three points. The boys had to win the 4x400 at the very end to secure the victory. And they did just that!.  

Winners on the night included Vince Jackson,  Cole Marvin and our 4x4 and the 4x8 relay teams. Mason had many great efforts and personal best times, but it was truely a team effort with all the Comets really coming together to stay GMC perfect. 

Mason has won the league championship every year since entering the league in 2007-08. Only Princeton and Middletown have won more GMC Track and Field Titles. The Middies, who have won 16 conference titles and was the last school to win a GMC championship, other than Mason, back in the 2007 season, before the Comets were in the league. Princeton last won, one of their 20 league titles, back in the spring of 1997. The Vikings hold the record for the longest consecutive string of GMC titles (12) from 1982-1993. 

Now its on to the Southwest District Championships this Wednesday and Friday back at Mason's Atrium Stadium. The Mason boys will be defending their District Championship and seeking their 9th title in the past 11 years. 

The first four in each event qualify to the Regional Championships at Dayton's Welcome Stadium on Wednesday, May 24th and Friday, May 26th. 


In dominating fashion, the Comet Girls Track and Field program continued their dominance over other league schools, winning their 10th conference championship since entering the GMC in 2007-08. Like the Mason boys, the Comet girls continue to be a track and field powerhouse in the league and city. With Fridays GMC title, the girls have now equaled Princeton HS for the most league championships (10) in the history of GMC girls track and field. The Vikings last won the GMC in 1996. 
At Friday's league Championships the girls team finished in the top three in almost every event to outscore 2nd place Lakota East 186.5 to 103.5.  It was an exciting night as Ellie Brush was named Runner of the Year, Amaya King was named Field Athlete of the Year, and Tony Affatato was named Coach of the Year.  Overall an outstanding night for all!  The girls are excited to head into the District Championship next week!
