BOYS TRACK WINS 10TH GMC TITLE OVER AVES!
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.
