The Firestone boys track and field team experienced excitement and disappointment Friday night at the Division I district meet at Ravenna.
Falcons senior Collister Fahie advanced to the Austintown Fitch regional in three individual events and junior Dominic Moore advanced in one event.
Moore was injured and his status for next week is uncertain. Prior to the injury, he placed second in the 110 hurdles on Friday. But after the injury he could not compete in his best event, the 300 hurdles.
Moore emerged as a top-flight hurdler last season at the state meet in Columbus, placing fourth in the 300 hurdles and seventh in the in the 110 hurdles. Friday night he strained a hamstring running the anchor leg of the 400 relay. The unit was in second, until Moore couldn't finish the race, and thus the relay team didn't advance.
Fahie placed second in the 100 and 200 meters, and was fourth in the long jump. Firestone junior William Carter placed fourth in the high jump.
Cuyahoga Falls junior Robert Jones won the 110 hurdles, 300 hurdles and was on the 400 relay that advanced.
Archbishop Hoban junior Ellis Thompson won the long jump and Ravenna senior Emmanual Jones won the 100.
Kent Roosevelt junior Braheem Wahid won the high jump and Copley senior Andrew Moss placed second.
