Clinton-Massie Boys Track Looking To Reload, Not Rebuild

Clinton-Massie Track

Clinton-Massie has established itself as major player in boys track
and field over the last decade. The Falcons have 10 league titles in 12
years and have faired no worse than third at the district meet for nine
consecutive seasons. Last year C-M finished fifth at the Division II
state meet. A similar script isn’t out of the question, although some different authors are going to have to step up.

A similar script isn’t out of the question, although some different authors are going to have to step up.

Gone are standouts Drew Frey and Caleb Medley who helped the Falcons win the 400 relay state title. Frey also captured the long jump state title and was seventh in the 400.

Don’t fret if you’re a Falcon fan, though, the cupboard is far from bare.

Senior Skylar Dooley returns after a sensational junior season that saw him add his name to the C-M record books multiple times. Dooley starred at the state meet as well, finishing fourth in the 100, 11th in the 200 and ran a leg on the victorious 400 relay.

Sophomore C.J. Kline also looks to impact the sprints. He was a part of the state champion relay as well.

Head coach Brian Mudd called the duo of Dooley and Kiline a “force.”

In addition to sprints, Mudd feels the Falcons should fair well in distance and throwing events.

Junior Shane Curtsinger returns after finishing third in the South Central Ohio League last year in both the 1,600 and 3,200. Sophomore Myles Corcoran was the SCOL cross country champion this past fall. Freshman D.J. Jewett and Adam Gullette are also expected to contribute in distance events.

In the circle, senior Levi Schwab and Tyler Borton are back. Schwab was second in the SCOL last year in the discus.

Mudd said jumping events and hurdles area areas of concern, but there are plenty of bodies competing for those spots. Senior Ben Dunham was a district placer last year in the high jump.

Other athletes expected to provide depth and contributions are Damien Alexander (hurdles), Michael Tong (shot put), Luke Hagee (sprints) and Chris Hendrickson (throws).

Additional freshman on the roster are Jordan Scanlon, Brad Davis, Justin Straight and Levi Dalton. Mudd said the quartet will “help to bring some depth to our sprint events.”
