HURON — The Edison boys track and field team had another successful weekend, winning the 12-team Artie Miller Invitational at Huron High School on Saturday.

The Chargers scored 105 points, which was 11 ahead of runners-up Bellevue (94). Norwalk (63.5) was fifth, Willard (53) was seventh and Monroeville played both (24.5).

“What a great competition,” Edison coach Tim Campana said. “Between Bellevue and Huron and us and Elyria, just a great competition — it was just a fun meet to be a part of — our kids thankfully did a great job.

“We’re getting points from a lot of different people,” he added. “Our distance kids are really the best part of the team and they just do a great job every time, but today, we got double points in the hurdles, we got double points in the two mile, we got double points in the pole vault. So we’re placing two people, and even though you’re not getting first-place points, you’re getting thirds and fifths, or second and fourth, or whatever, and it just adds up when you’re able to do that.”

The Chargers’ 4x800 relay team of Gavin Schaeffer, Tyler Coon, Brandon Romell and Daniel Lambert won in 8:22.86. Sam Stoll was second in the 110-meter hurdles in 16.22 seconds for Edison, which used its depth to add six third-place finishers en route to the title.

Taking third for Edison included Tyler Coon in the 3200 (9:53.86), Logan Collins in the discus (132 feet) and Dylan O’Dell in the high jump (5-feet-10).

Three relays were also third for Edison. The 4x100 of Joseph Eskra, Kolt Wikel, Collins and Stoll ran in 45.2 seconds; the 4x200 of Eskra, Wikel, Ian Janssen and Brady Patterson checked in at 1:34.92, and the 4x400 of Carson Ehrhardt, Patterson, Romell and Schaeffer finished in 3:36.33.

For Norwalk, Owen Rhodes was again dominant in winning the pole vault at an even 14 feet. Jad Oglesby was second in the 800 (2:03.91), while Matthew Sickinger placed third in the shot put (43-feet-8.5).
