sets a new record in winning the 800
By Shayne Combs, JJHuddle.com & SVCsportszone.
In Saturdayâ€™s Division II Girls Track & Field State
Meet, Zane Trace's Taylor Hatfield crossed the finish line
first with a time of 2:08.91. The time not only makes the
sophomore the 2010 state champion in this event, but it
makes her the new state record holder as well. The old
record was held by Bridget Franek of Mantua Crestwood
in 2006 with a time of 2:11.22. Hatfieldâ€™s run on
Saturday just missed the stadium record at Jesse Owens
Stadium which belongs to Cleveland Heights Beaumontâ
€™s Emily Infeld with a time of 208.63. Infeldâ€™s time,
which is just .28 off Hatfieldâ€™s mark, was set back in
2007. Hatfield was the runaway winner in this yearâ€™s
event as she crossed nearly seven seconds ahead of Kirsten
Stevenson of Chagrin Falls.
Ross leads solid showing for the Tanks
Adrian Ross, Shane Maier, Doug French and Ryan
Valentine finished third in the 4x800 final at this weekâ€™s

of Saturdayâ€™s Division II final. Hall finished in eighth-
place in both the 100 and 200.

finish in the 1600 run.
