LUCKEY — Elise Wolff’s ultimate goal this season is to compete in the state high school track and field championships.
For now, though, the Eastwood senior is concentrating on smaller goals.
She’s hoping the small-picture approach will enable her to qualify for the Division II state meet in her specialties — the 100 hurdles and the pole vault.
Wolff was a regional qualifier in both last season.
She just missed advancing to the hurdles finals by five one-hundreths of a second and she was sixth in the pole vault.
The top four finishers in each event at the regional advance to state.
“I just want to keep improving and PRing (personal record) in each event,” said Wolff, the defending Northern Buckeye Conference champion in both events. “You can never be satisfied. I want to win the league in both of my events again. I was so close last year to state and that makes me work that much harder and I always want to be able to say I’m getting better and better.”

LUCKEY - Eastwood's boys are striving to win their 14th straight league championship this season.
The Eagles return 28 lettermen - including 12 seniors and 10 juniors - when they won the Northern Buckeye Conference title with 167 points.
Among the returnees is junior Devin Snowden, who won the conference championship in the long jump and the 300 hurdles.
The Eagles also won the 3,200, 400 and 1,600 relays in the NBC meet last season, and return three members from each of those relay teams.
Eastwood has 65 athletes on its roster.
"I love the attitude of our guys," Eastwood coach Brian Sabo said. "You already see a great work ethic. They're giving great effort. There's a lot of talent and it's our job to pull some more talent out of them. All is we ask is to give great effort.
"Our goal is to win the league. Every year, we want to get as many kids as we can to state. Our district is so tough, that our goal is to just to survive and get in the top four for the regional and then see how many kids we can get to state."

Coach:  Joe Hudok, second season.
2013 record: Eighth in the NLL.
Returning lettermen: Noah Lanning, middle distance; Markus Cheslock, jumps; Mark Rochester, jumps; Nathan Tembo, throws; Trent Wisecup, hurdles; Phil Zamarripa, middle distance; Chance Bailey, sprints; Ryan Emans, sprints; Thomas Montague-Casillas, throws; Lucas Overmyer, distance; Sam Panther, hurdles; Mason Cordes, throws; Jordan McGowan, hurdles; Nathan Kisor, throws; Zu Forshee, sprints; and Codie Garza, distance.
Coach's comment: "Last season, we were very young and took our lumps, but our kids got some great experience and that should help us to improve this season. We have a very good core of returning athletes and several freshmen who will see significant varsity action. We are still fairly young and unproven, but I really like the direction our boys team is headed in. We had very good numbers in our off-season conditioning program. Our goal is to compete hard and improve as the season goes on in order to finish in the upper half of the league. Hopefully, we are laying a strong foundation for sustained success for years to come."

JERRY CITY - Elmwood's hard work on and off the track is paying off.
The Royals are emerging as one of the best boys track teams in the Northern Buckeye Conference.
They've finished second or third in the NBC the last two seasons, and they're goal is to challenge for one of the top spots again this season.
Elmwood returns eight lettermen from last season when it scored 110 points in the NBC meet to finish second.
The Royals were third with 104 points in 2012 and second in the Suburban Lakes League with 105 points in 2011.
"We've had success and that's really helped us grow, and we talk to our friends about coming out for the team," said Elmwood senior Aaron Arnold, a Division III state qualifier in the long jump, and the 400 and 1,600 relays last season.
The success the last three seasons came after Elmwood scored just 48.5 points in the SLL meet in 2010 and 70.5 points in 2009.
