Here are some highlights from the Division II state track and field meet at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus: 

The Buchtel girls track and field team won the Division II state title.

Buchtel clinched the title with a first-place finish in the final event, the 1,600-meter relay.

Buchtel freshman Kachay Hullum came from behind down the final stretch and crossed the finish line first as the Griffins recorded a time of 3:54.42. Senior Chelsea James and juniors Samantha Lockhart and Tiffany Tucker were the other members of the relay team.

Lockhart, Tucker, senior Jasmine Golson and sophomore Christy Campbell won the 800 relay in 1:40.77.

Buchtel coach John Scott becomes the first coach to win back-to-back state titles with different genders. The Buchtel boys won the Division II state title last year.
