Baker, just a sophomore, tossed the
discus 138’00� to capture the
Division III State Championship.
Baker also finished fifth in the shot.

senior Daniel Gardner made it two
state championships for the Bearcats
as Gardner scorched the eight-lap race
in 9:26.21 to win the D-III 3200 State

Unioto’s Adrian Ross capped off
an incredible career with a second-
place finish in the D-II 1600. Ross

cleared 14-4 in the pole vault to take a
third-place finish in Division III.
