We present a comprehensive preview of the upcoming 2011 OHSAA state track and field championships for your listening pleasure this week. And you should be unsurprised to find out that we here at the MVP podcast are all over the story.
We’ll set you straight on the best performances in track and field this year – for both the girls and the boys – in every division around the state of Ohio. Then, we’ll tell you who is likely to win and who is likely to contend.
We know that you have come to expect more than that from the MVP podcast, so we’ve tossed the idea around and we have decided to cut you a break and give you some more…
How about a taste of what it is like to prepare a team for the big show?
We’ll bring you head coach Larry Topp of Minster High School who has positioned his team as the favorite in D-III for the boys this weekend–despite having lost his best performer, Sam Philipot.
Philipot, the defending D-III 200-meter state champion and a preferred walk-on at Ohio State for track in the fall, would have scored a ton of points for MInster this weekend.
Find out how Topp plans to deal with Philipot’s hamstring injury on The Podcast.
We’ll also talk with Sidney Booker, the head coach of Dayton Dunbar High School’s boys track squad.
The coach was on our show earlier this spring because we believed that the Wolverines were the preseason favorites in D-II, but a recent hamstring injury to their superstar, Antonio Blanks has projected their fortunes into the phantom zone.
The senior runner is the defending state D-II 300-meter low hurdle champion, and he placed in a totally maxed-out four different events at the 2010 state meet.
Blanks will attend Ohio State on an academic/track and field full scholarship in the fall, but he is unlikely to run at Jesse Owens Center in the state finals for Dunbar this weekend…
Or maybe he will.
Find out more here today on the MVP podcast.
