WV has been a coonskin hat and a musket. M. Ruddlesden shine for the ladies while senior TJ Abel brings it home in the 800M By Jamie MuUins, Sports Editor Each year, the GSC Track and Field Team travels to Wheeling Je- suit University for the yearly WVIAC Championship at the end , of April. For Senior TJ Abel, this was a final trip to WJU and one last shot at a WVI/kC Championship. Abel had shown schools through- out the conference he would be com- petition over the past four years, but he had yet to win when it mattered, at the Tournament Championship. In fact, last year (2011) had been like thrower Matty Porter, who took very rough for Abel, after entering the 800 Meter Run (his top event) with a 1:55 seed, an error or injury in the event led to him finishing in dead last with a time well behind 2:20. This year was his one chance at redemption, and Abel was not leaving GSC without at least one WVIAC Championship! He stepped onto the track this past weekend, April 27-28, with 10 other runners ready to find out who was the best. Abel started the race with a solid pace and had no intention of slowing down. With the top eight runners all within five seconds of one another, this was clearly a tough field of com- petitors. However, when it was time to hit that final stretch, Abel broke away from the pack and raced ahead to that WVIAC Championship with a time of 1:53.64. A pair of runners were second in Hammer and fourth in dis- l: cus, and rookie javelin thrower Boris Nimcevic, who finished sixth, had impressive days. No one could steal Abel's spotlight on the men's roster! As for the Ladies, the day belonged to sophomore Meghan Ruddlesden. Ruddlesden had already broken the GSC Long Jump Record earlier in the season; she is also provisionally quali- fied to compete at nationals this sum- mer. However, when she arrived in Wheeling, none of that mattered. She needed a WVIAC Championship. The competitors were not ready to just hand that over either, with a jump MEGHAN RUDDLESDEN, of 17-10.75, a freshman from Seton WVIAC LONG JUMP CHAMPION Hill challenged Ruddlesden's top rank- ing, but it was just an inch short of for the Championship finals, and on enough. Ruddlesden walked away day two, Ruddlesden gave it all she with the WVIAC Women's Long had to finish in second with a time of Jump Championship with a jump of 12.59, another GSC Record! 17-11.75. Danielle Perkins also performed While herchampionshipwas abig well for the ladies with a second directly on his tail with a time of deal, she also made a splash in the place finish in the high jump! 1:54.14. 100M Dash.
