On Saturday, October 27th, Senior Ryan Adkins qualified during the Regional Cross Country Meet in Boardman to represent our Blue and White Tiger Nation in the 2018 OHSAA State Championship Cross Country Meet which was scheduled to be held on Saturday, November 3rd however, due to the recent inclement weather, the Meet has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 10th.
This is Ryan's third consecutive trip to the OHSAA State Cross Country Meet. Ryan is our school record holder in the 5K (15:18.) He has earned All-Ohio honors each of his previous two trips to the state meet, finishing 6th in 2016 and 20th in 2017. Ryan is also a three time Academic All-Ohioan (state qualifier plus a minimum 3.5 GPA.) This season, Ryan was first at the Solon Invitational, The Legends Meet, and the Suburban League Championship. In ten races this season, Ryan has finished in the top 3 seven times. Ryan was voted Runner of the Year in the Suburban League by the league's cross country coaches. Ryan was runner-up at the Trumbull County District where he posted a time of 15:23 - the second fastest time of his career, which currently ranks him #4 in Ohio in Division I! Ryan recently committed to Butler University where he will continue his academic and athletic careers.
We are very Tiger Proud of Ryan and we want to take this opportunity to thank Head Coach Sarah Kmet, Assistant Coach Dalanda Jackson and of course Ryan's parents Michael and Michele Adkins of Twinsburg for their support of this very special Tiger! Best of luck Ryan! Tiger Strong - Tiger Proud!
