The Archbishop Hoban track and field teams maneuvered through less than ideal weather conditions on Saturday to protect their home turf.

With depth on their side, Hoban’s teams both earned titles in the seventh annual Michael Beaven Invitational. The Knights topped a field that included seven boys teams and six girls teams in an event named for Beaven, a longtime coach at Hoban and Firestone prior to his passing in 2005 at the age of 58.

Senior Jenna Otterman led Hoban to the top of the girls standings with 203 points. Firestone took second on the girls side with 126 points and Buchtel finished third with 74 points.

“The girls did an awesome job even though the weather was a little chilly,” Hoban girls coach Eddie Hewitt said. “All the girls ran well and no one complained, which is not an unusual thing because the girls are good and I just try to prepare them mentally that it is cold for everybody.”

Otterman was named the most valuable athlete in the girls meet after winning the 100-meter hurdles (16.93 seconds), the long jump (14-11¼) and the 400 relay (54.51), and taking fourth in the 300 hurdles (54.91).

Hoban’s boys scored 178 points to finish first. Firestone finished second with 103½ points and Cleveland Benedictine was third with 73 points.

Hoban sophomore Dominic Brink won the 1,600 in 4:51.71 and the 3,200 in 10:32.33.

“Our middle distance and distance guys did really well,” Hoban coach Tom O’Neil said. “We are banged up in sprints, but we had some guys fill in quite nicely.”

Hoban won two of the four boys relays. Junior Michael Jorgenson, senior Matt Fiume, sophomore Ethan Kowalik and senior Jack Skinner won the 3,200 in 8:39.53; and Fiume, Kowalik, junior Jared Phillips and senior McKae Matthews won the 1,600 in 3:39.53.

In addition to Brink’s two wins, the Knights won four other individual boys events — Jorgenson (800, 2:06.86); Matthews (200, 23.46); senior Christopher Mattler (pole vault, 9-0) and sophomore William Harrison (high jump, 5-4).

“This was our fourth meet of the week and I am just proud of the fact that they got through the meet on a cold day,” O’Neil said. “We won the Bedford Relays on Tuesday, we had a home meet against Buchtel on Wednesday that we won and we were down at Orrville [on Friday] night for an invitational and finished third behind Lake and Green.”

Benedictine senior Matthew DiNovo was named the most valuable athlete in the boys meet after winning the 110 hurdles (15.46), the 300 hurdles (39.28), and the long jump (19-9), and helping the Bengals to second place in the 800 relay (1:33.93).

Cleveland Central Catholic junior Kody Bell won the boys 100 in 11.47, and joined juniors Qujuan McGlothin and junior Sirhan Smith and senior David Lee to win the 400 relay (44.75) and the 800 relay (1:33.02).

Other area boys who won an event were Buchtel junior Kirkland Robins (400, 52.52) and senior Dierre Blash (shot put, 45-0), and Firestone senior Jaylen Johnson (discus, 134-2).

Hoban sophomore Janay Bass took first in the 400 in 1:01.70 and the 200 in 27.16.

The Knights girls won three of the four relays. The 400 relay (54.51) featured freshman Mia Scott, Otterman, senior Kourtnee Dallas-Robinson and senior Faith Benson-Ludle; the 3,200 relay (10:41.36) consisted of junior Bridget Hahn and sophomores Hannah Schill, Catie Knapp and Audrey Ruscak and the 1,600 relay (4:29.70) included freshman Lexi Zupsansky, freshman Celia Mattler, Dallas-Robinson and Knapp.

“Jenna has been running for me for the past three years,” Hewitt said. “During her sophomore year, I could tell she was something special. … She leads by example.”

Other Hoban girls who won an individual event were: Hahn (1,600, 5:43.35); sophomore Brigitta Hall (high jump, 4-8); junior Merideth Vieson (pole vault, 7-0) and senior K’Maira Carson (shot put, 37-2).

Buchtel won the girls 800 relay in 1:47.19 with junior Dyamond Myers, junior London Green, freshman Nevaeh Lewis and sophomore Drew Oliver. Green also crossed the finish line first in the 100 (13.13) and Oliver triumphed in the 300 hurdles (50.55).

The Firestone girls team featured three champions: senior Claire Moritz (800, 2:27.99), sophomore Jordan Baith (discus, 120-7) and junior Carly Justice (3,200, 12:20.21).
