Crestwood Track & Field

    Citius, Altius, Fortius - Faster, Higher, Stronger 

State Placers

Each year, every Crestwood Track & Field athlete has the opportunity in late May to qualify for the Outdoor State Tournament. In order to qualify for the State Tournament, you have to be in the top four of your respective events in Districts and then at Regionals. Therefore, earning a spot to Jesse Owens Stadium on the Ohio State University campus in Columbus is an amazing accomplishment! Not only did the athletes listed here make it to the State Tournament (meaning they were one of the top 16 athletes in their events), but they were also able to make the podium as one of the top eight athletes in the state of Ohio for their events. Athletes listed in bold were state champions for their events and have also earned a spot on the Crestwood "Wall of Fame." Every one of these athletes spent many hours working on their mechanics, conditioning, strength, and flexibility. Each of you have the opportunity of making it to Columbus - the question is whether or not you have the work ethic, drive, and determination to make it there.... Coach Kerst, Coach Usher and Coach Ondash believe in you!
