     The Boardman High School boys track team will be represented in two events at the 2024 OHSAA State Championship this weekend at Welcome Stadium in Dayton, Oh.
      The Spartans will be represented on the track Friday afternoon at 2:15 p.m. in the 4x800 relay after the team of junior David D’Altorio, senior Brock Farris, sophomore Adam Nigro, and senior Ethan Boots posted a season-best time of 7:54.72 to place third overall at the OHSAA Northeast Regional.
      On Saturday, the Spartans will be represented in the 800 meter run by Farris following his school-record time of 1:52.82 that earned him third overall in the regional championship. Farris will race at 4:45 p.m.
      “This group has had such a great year starting way back in June when they began training for cross country,” explained Spartan Head Coach John Phillips, adding “they have remained focused on getting to state as a group after just missing in the fall, I could not be more proud of them and excited for this weekend in Dayton. They have earned this, and they deserve it-they will represent Boardman, and our program with pride.”
      At the regional meet, the Spartans also had sophomore James Mitchell place 7th in the shot put with a career best throw of 50-3.5”. Sophomore Ahmed Mohammed placed ninth in the discus with a throw of 145’5”.
      Junior Santino Radujkovic was 11th overall in the discus with a throw of 141’ 10”. D’Altorio placed 12th in the 3200 with a time of 9:56.
