Shenandoah’s Barnett Brings Home Medals from State Indoor Track Championship Meet

By Tara Estadt

Shenandoah sophomore, Braxton Barnett, finished his indoor track season in spectacular fashion. He competed at the OATCCC (Ohio Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches) D2/D3 Indoor State Meet on Saturday, March 2nd at the Spire Institute in Geneva, OH. To qualify for this meet, an athlete had to earn a top 24 performance in an event by the end of the regular indoor season. Barnett not only qualified, but held top performances in 4 events.

When asked about his experience, Barnett said, “It was a long eventful day, but I was happy to represent Shenandoah and have a fun time with my family and coaches.” He brought home medals in the long jump and 60m hurdles. He placed 5th in long jump, with a PR at 21’ 6” and 8th in the 60m hurdles, with a time of 8.37. Barnett placed 20th in the 200m dash with a time of 23.40. He jumped 6’ 0” to place 15th overall in the high jump.

Shenandoah Zeps have started training for the outdoor track and field season, with their first scheduled meet in Marietta on March 26th.
