At the Fle/ays, no other jumper, in any other class (Division A, AA, or AAA) jumped higher than 6'2", except for Aviles! (Photo provided by FelixAviles) Lady Titans Highlight an Impressive Relay with a First Place Finish in the 4x102.5 Meter Shuttle Hurdle Relays By Jamie MuUins, Sports Editor With the WV State Track Meet just around the corner, teams from across WV gathered in Charleston this past weekend for the annual Gazette Re- lays! For the GCHS Titans, this was an opportunity to measure up the com- petition, and to see just how they compared to other Single A competi- tors. On Friday night, April 27, junior Anthony Aviles proved he was the one to beat this year in 'the High Jump Competition. After watching competitor after competitor foul out by hitting the bar at lower heights like 5' 10", 5' 11 ", 6'0", and 6'1", Aviles saw his final com- petitor eliminated at the height of 6'2". From that point, Aviles was guar- anteed the win, and decided to have a little fun as he continued higher. When he discovered the event's record was 6'8", set in 2006 by an ithleteout of Chesapeake, OH, Aviles decided to try to add a second big event record to his wall of accolades, to go right beside the WVState Cham- pionship record he broke at last year's State Championship. Aviles watched as the officials set the bar at 6' 8.25", a height he had never jumped in practice, let alone in competition. He stepped back to look at the bar that was raised in front of him, accepted the challenge and took a leaping run at the obstacle. Moments later, those near the event, who had witnessed the feat celebrated as Aviles cleared the bar for not only an obvious first place finish, but the Gazette Relays' High Jump record! However, now we are left to won- der, how will Aviles top that perfor- mance on May 18 [the State Meet]? As for the rest of the GCHS Team, there were multiple strong perfor- mances for the Lady Titan Team. However, none as exciting as the Shuttle Hurdle Relay victory! For the Lady Titans' talented hur- dlers, senior Sydney Pettit and sopho- more Hannah Roberts, it had been a long, rough day of finishing just be- hind the Doddridge County Hurdlers. In the 100 Meter High Hurdle event, Petfit edged out her teammate for a third place finish with a time of 18.08. Roberts finished with a respectable 18.15. However, in the 300 Meter Low Hurdle, Roberts proved to have the stronger finish with a third place fin: ish with a time of 52.60. Pettit fin- ished just behind her in fourth place with a time of 55.26. In both events,, it was a pair of Doddridge hurdlers who took one and tWo. ....... " '  .... Thus, when the Lady Titan indi- v/dual hurdlers Pettit and Roberts got the chance to team up with fellow GCHS runners Tisha Riffle and Elaina White, they were ready for revenge. As the teams took their lanes for the 4x 102.5 Meter Shuttle Hurdle Relay, the crowd knew it would be a close match-up between Gilmer and Doddridge; however, most people expected the Bulldogs to walk away with the win. A minute later, everyone stared waiting for the official result as the two teams had finished only hundreths of a second apart. Then, the times were revealed, the Lady Titans had taken the Shuttle Relay with a time of 1:12.66; Doddridge finished second with a time of 1:12.70. The victory was big for the Lady Titans, but now, the target is on their back as the State Tournament ap- proaches. Can the Lady Titans beat the Lady Bulldogs again in two short weeks, or will the match-up end dif- ferently this time. We will see May 18-19 in Charleston! As for the Titan teams, the Lad Titans finished in a very i'espectable third, while the Titans took seventh! GAZETTE RELAY RESULTS: THE TOP SIX TITAN FINISHERS 110M Hurdles 39" (Boys) 4 - A.
