Brandon Saine

The 32nd Annual edition of the Don Mitchell Roosevelt Memorial Track & Field Meet was filled with exciting moments on both the girls and the boys side. Ray Small and Brandon Saine were two future Ohio State Buckeyes that played starring roles in the prestigious two-day event. Glenville easily won their third consective meet title but weren't happy to lose their signature race to Trotwood Madison to close out the meet. Here's how some of the second-day events looked in pictures.

Ohio State's own Ted Ginn Jr. addressed the participants prior to the meet officially getting underway. Ginn himself performed at the meet in 2004.



Some familiar football names in the event this year were Iowa-bound Anthony Bowman of Orchard Lake (Mich.) St. Mary's High School.



His teammate from St. Mary's, Taurian Washington.



Taylor Price from Hilliard Darby.



OSU-bound Ray Small from Glenville.



OSU-commit Brandon Saine from Pigqu.



Kyle Jefferson from Glenville.



OSU-bound Aaron Gant from OLSM.



Gant's teammate and top national recruit Dionte Allen.



Gant and Allen are best friends and first cousins.



Washington is also a top national recruit.



Gant, Allen and Washington are 3/4 of their 4X100 and 4X200 relay squads. The trio attended Ohio State's spring game together.



Allen is most certainly at the top of many of the top programs' wish list, Ohio State included.



Vincent Corner, a great football name, is a cornerback from Springfield North.



Corner won the 110 Hurdles in a time of 13.82 seconds.



But this race, the 100 meters, was the highlight of the day.



Saine got out of the blocks quickly and held his lead throughout the race.





Saine finished first with a time of 10.38 seconds and Small came in second with a time of 10.55 seconds.



Saine, at 6-0 and 205 pounds, bagged a first-place finish in the 100 - the only race he ran in at the meet - and verbally committed to The Ohio State University earlier in the week.



Small ran the anchor leg of the 4X100 relay team that posted a time of 41.97 seconds.



Jefferson won the 400 meters in a time of 47.58 seconds.





Raymond Fisher won the 300 Hurdles in a time of 38.46 seconds.



Fisher is fully recovered from a knee injury that forced him to miss all of last football season.



The 200 meter open was a terrific race.



Small edged Trotwood's Stephen Robinson at the line to earn the first-place finish.







Small was clocked at 21.51 seconds, Robinson was second at 21.57, Trotwood's Darison Williams was third at 21.59 and Jefferson took fourth in a time of 21.64.





But Trotwood closed the meet with an upset win in the 4X400 over Glenville. Trotwood recorded a time of 3:16.67 and Glenville finished close behind at 3:17.83.
