Athletes are another step closer to Jesse Owens Stadium after Wednesday and Thursday as both the Division II and Division III regional track and field championships started their respective qualifying rounds at Muskingum College and Fairfield Union High School. The D-3 finals will be held Friday night at FUHS and the D-2 finals will begin Saturday in New Concord, with the top four qualifiers in each event held earning a spot in next weekend’s OHSAA state championships in Columbus, Ohio. Clockwise from top, the Eastern duo of Jett, left, and Daschle Facemyer make a baton exchange during D-3 qualifying in the 4x200m relay event. Eastern senior Katie Keller releases a throw in the D-3 shot put final. Gallia Academy senior Madison Holley hits full stride during the 4x800m relay event. Complete results of the D-3 finals will appear in the weekend sports editions of the Point Pleasant Register and The Sunday Times-Sentinel, while the D-2 finals will run in the Tuesday sports editions of the Gallipolis Daily Tribune, Point Pleasant Register and The Daily Sentinel.
