BUCCANEER BOYS MEDAL IN THREE EVENTS...
The Covington boys earned state medals in all three events they competed in on Saturday at the state meet.
The Covington boys pose with former 400 meter world record holder Butch Reynolds at the state track meet on Saturday. Reynolds set a world record of 43.29 seconds in the 400 meter dash on August 17, 1988, which stood for 11 years until Michael Johnson broke the record with a time of 43.18.

COLUMBUS - The Covington boys track and field team got familiar with the eighth spot on the podium Saturday.

Gray Harshbarger, Alex Shaffer, Cade Schmelzer and Andrew Cates finished eighth in both the 800 and 1,600 relays, while Cates took eighth in the 400.

Harshbarger passed his brother Cade in total state meet medals with the eighth-place finishes in both the 800 relay, 1:31.53 and 1,600 relay, 3:27.87.

"I don't know if I would say that (bragging rights in the family)," Harhsbarger said with a smile. "Cade (Harshbarger) had higher finishes than I did. It was great to get on the podium. These guys (his teammates) did a great job and Cade Schmelzer stepped up in both races (after Duncan Cooper was injured)."

While Shaffer didn't have to hurdle another runner, as he did in the 1,600 relay semifinals, he said it wasn’t easy.

"The 4x4 is never easy," he said. "It feels good to get on the podium twice - to get Gray (Harshbarger) up there twice."

Schmelzer agreed.

"This was about getting our senior leader (Gray Harshbarger) up on the podium twice," Schmelzer said. "He is our senior leader in a big way. We may not have finished as high as we wanted, but it feels good to get up on the podium."

Cates had the same feeling.

"This was for our senior leader (Gray Harshbarger)," Cates said. "I felt like I could have run a lot better race in the 400. For sure, this is motivation to come back over here next year and finish higher."

Harshbarger expects that.

"These guys are going to do great things next year," he said.

Alex Shaffer runs in the 4x200 meter relay.
Andrew Cates runs in the finals of the 400 meter dash.
Cade Schmelzer runs in the 4x400 meter relay in the state finals on Saturday.
