Bryant Browning didn't qualify, Raymond Small couldn't go in the finals because of a nagging groin pull and Robert Rose finished in sixth place in the shot to add 3 points to the 51 that Glenville accumulated on the day, which was good enough to earn the Tarblooders their fourth-consecutive state title and 14th championship in the school's history. Here's how some of the day looked in pictures.

Robert Rose started the scoring out for Glenville on the day by finishing 6th in the shot put with a throw of 56-11.50.

It was a personal best for Rose and it earned Glenville 3 points.

Kyle Jefferson anchored the 4X200 relay team that finished first in a time of 1:25.78.

Good for 10 more points.

De'Erick Barber anchored the winning 4X100 relay team in a time of 41.98 seconds.

Good for 10 more points.

Kyle Jefferson finished second to Brandon Saine in the 400 meters while his teammate Xavier Clements finshed fifth which was good enough for 12 more points.

Raymond Fisher finished third in the 300 meter hurdles which added 6 more points to the total.

And with Glenville leading 41-39 going into the last race of the day, the 4X400 relay, Jefferson assumed the anchor position...

...and waited...

...before he delivered another state title to Glenville.

With Daven Jones (second from left) filling in for Raymond Small, as he did in the 4X100, the 4X400 relay team finished the tournament in a winning time of 3:14.80.

Ted Ginn Sr. congratulated his winning 4X400 relay team as the celebration began.

Ginn shares a moment with Fisher who was overwhelmed with emotion after it was over.

With a tear in his eye, Fisher is congratulated by Raymond Small who wasn't able to compete in the finals because of an injury.

The Tarblooders win it again!

Kyle Jefferson had the greatest athletic day of his life on his 18th birthday!

Ginn won his fourth state track title as a head coach.

These three future Buckeyes, along with their coach Tony Overton - Ginn's right-hand man, ended their high school careers at Glenville in style.

Ted Ginn Jr. was there to support his dad and his former team and celebrate the victory.

There couldn't have been a better ending to the weekend for the Ginn family, with Jamario O'Neal and Teddy pictured with their mom and dad, as Ted Ginn Sr. was honored in Miami, Florida on Friday night as the national high school Coach Of The Year by the Black Coaches Association.
