New London showed sports domination the first week of June by sending two track athletes to the state meet and earning the All-Sports championship.

Senior Caleb Logan competed on the Jesse Owens Memorial Track on Friday June 6. Logan took eighth place in discus with a throw of 150-2 feet to finish off his track career as a Wildcat. This eighth place finish earned him an All-Ohio status.

Logan finished just one place behind his biggest conference competitor, Carson Kinney. Caleb had finished in front of Kinney in the conference, district, and regional competitions and fell just short of him at state.

Throughout his senior year Caleb had under his belt a conference title, district title, regional runner-up, and a place on the podium at state.

Junior Alex Copley traveled to Columbus on Saturday June 7 to compete in the 3200 meter run. Copley finished in sixteenth place with a time of 10:24.37.

Some of Copley's big achievements in the 3200 meter run this year were second place at conference, third at districts, and fourth at regionals.

"It was an awesome experience and a great opportunity," Copley said. "I hope to make it back next year with a goal to make it on the podium," he concluded.

New London hasn't won an All-Sports trophy since 1996. The Cats (70 points) finished twelve points in front of the St. Paul Flyers (58 points) who took second.

The Wildcats boasted ten out of twelve sports teams earning top three places as well as five first place finishes.

The teams gaining gold medals were girls and boys cross country, softball, baseball, and girls track.

Top three showings came from the teams for football (third place), boys golf (third place), Boys basketball (third place), girls basketball (third place), and boys track (second place.)

The New London Wildcats hope to start a streak of earning the All-Sports championship in upcoming years.
