    The anticipated match up of the area’s  fastest sprinters at Wednesday’s  Metro Track and Field Meet helped to shed a little light on how things may shake out at this year’s state meet. Millard West’sKohlman Adema-Schulte left now doubt that he is clearly the fastest 100 meter sprinter in the metro, as he pulled away from the pack at the 50 meter mark on his way to claiming the title.  Schulte hit the tape at 10.79 leaving those behind him straining in vain to at least keep on his heels—they knew there would be no catching him on this day.

    North’s Nic Johnson—the one man left in the field with a chance to beat Schulte— hobbled across the finish, after having pulled up around the 80 meter mark due to cramps. Jake Marousek of Burke, the only other runner who had a legitimate chance to challenge Schulte was disqualified for a false start. 

    After recovering from his cramps, Johnson faced Schulte again in the 200 meter—this time with an ending more to his liking. Johnson easily beat the field of top sprinters (Schulte, Burrus and Marousek) despite having  to grab at his cramping back thigh, while he was just ten meters away from the finish.  Johnson clocked in at 22.22, setting notice that he will be the one to beat at state in this event. Johnson claimed both the 200 and 400 meter titles at the  this year’s Metro Meet. And by the way that he runs these two events, he has a good chance of repeating this performance at state.

      Daryle Hawkins of Central also walked away with two titles by winning the triple jump (46’6″) and the 110 hurdles (15.01). While Johnson and Hawkins were grabbing their titles inside the stadium, Papillion’s Josh Kage was busy collecting his two titles outside the stadium and inside the throwing rings. Kage won the shot put (53′ 7.5″)  and the discus (154′ 7″). Not many athletes can master both throwing disciplines, but junior Josh Kage is proving that he is among a rare breed. Kage (6′ 4″ 250 lbs.) is a big kid with a big frame. If I were a college football scout, I would definitely be taking a good look at this athletic kid—he is only going to get bigger and better. 

    On the girls side:  SISSON—enough said. Emily Wilkinson took home two individual titles in the long jump (18’1.25″) and triple jump (36′ 10.25″) Freshman LeQue Davis walks out from  her first Metro Meet carrying two titles: 100 hurdles (14.57) and 200 meter (25.58).  

    Hit News Highlight Performer of the Meet is Emily Sisson. Three individual titles and three records-um!  Other notable performers: You heard it here first;
Look out for Omaha North sophomore sprinter Thomas Hodges—he will be at the top of the charts!
