Warren G. Harding girls are all about domination. The statistics are proof that this year's track and field team, albeit young, is ready to catapult itself into one of the top Division I track and field teams in the state.
Solon, the defending champion, is the odds-on favorite to win this year's title. The Comets have run roughshod over most of their competition this year.
However, Gahanna Lincoln and Warren G. Harding are in the conversation - making these three the go-to teams heading into this week's district competition.
Harding won't see Gahanna Lincoln until state, but will face Solon at the Division I district and regionals at Austintown Fitch Falcon Stadium.
This week, the Raiders are one of the favorites heading into this week's Division I district at Fitch, starting Wednesday.
Look at WGH's resume.
Aisha Jackson glides over each hurdle, taking every inch her 6-foot frame with an effortless motion ahead of the competition.
Did I mention she's top six in the 100- and 300-meter hurdles in the state?
Sophomore Justice Richardson always jets out of the starting blocks. Her times in the 100- and 200-meter dash usually can't be touched. Staying with her isn't easy.
Her top 10 times in both say quite enough.
Junior Nautica Hill has a knack for getting around the track one time. Her 400 time of 57.76 from the Trumbull County Meet has her ranked in the top 15.
The 4x100, 4x200 and 4x400 relays all rank top 10 with the 4x100 ranked first and 4x400 second prior to Friday's action.
The following are five things to watch during this week's district action:
1. John F. Kennedy's 4x400 relay. The last three years, the Eagles have had more self-inflicted wounds than they care to remember. The laundry list of infractions are forgettable to JFK.
Last year at the Division III Springfield District finals, the Eagles stepped out of their lane more than the allotted three times.
At the 2012 Division III Navarre Fairless Regional, JFK was disqualified in finals.
Then, at the 2011 Division III Independence District, the Eagles were flagged for a false start.
The Eagles need to grab the mojo they had in 2010 when they finished fourth in the state with a time of 3:22.14.
JFK will rely on the foursome of seniors Carl Zallow and Zach Watt, junior Chad Zallow and freshman Jacob Coates, which carried the Eagles to a runner-up finish at this year's county meet. Ninety-two points between four athletes isn't too shabby.
However, if the Eagles want to make a run at this year's Division III team state championship, they'll have to get the 4x400 relay to state.
2. Liberty's Courteney Lukac vs. United's Allison Parks. The next three weeks between these two athletes should be fun to watch in Division II in the 800.
These two are the top three runners in the Austintown Region.
Lukac just broke the 2:20 mark at the county meet, while Parks went 2:17.99 at the Columbiana County Meet.
It should be an exciting race to the finish as the two go head-to-head Saturday at the Division II District Meet at Lakeview High School.
3. McDonald boys district streak. The Blue Devils have won the Division III Springfield District Meet every year since 2008.
JFK last took the district title in 2007 and the two teams will vie for the Springfield District title this year.
McDonald, with its field events, have the edge over JFK at the district level and look like it'll be en route to its seventh straight Springfield District crown.
4. Girard girls relays. The Indians are ranked 10th in the 4x200 and 4x400 relays - two events Girard could take to state this year.
The Indians went in the 4x200 last year, but didn't make it to the Division II state finals.
The trip for both relays to state begins Thursday at the Division II Lakeview District.
5. McDonald trifecta. The past two seasons, the McDonald boys and girls have owned the Division III Springfield District.
New Middletown has been overcome with blue and white as the two track and field team won team titles.
McDonald has the top two throwers in Jai'Lyn Mosley and Tory Ross.
The Blue Devils have solid sprints and relays.
And, the distance events are well represented.
It's a good bet the McDonald flag will be flying high Friday night inside Springfield's stadium.
