COLUMBUS, Ohio – Although now preparing for their first track and field seasons as collegiate student-athletes, three Ohio State freshmen have been named to the 2013 Track and Field News High School All-America Team.
The trio of Lamar Bruton, Dylan Dyke and Aaron Zedella are being honored for their senior seasons in track and field at their respective high schools. Track and Field News names five high school athletes in each event, or less if that event is contested less frequently, to its All-America team each year.
Bruton, a native of New Castle, Del., was named to the All-American team for his performance in the 400-meters event. While attending Howard of Technology, Bruton was a 13-time Delaware state champion in the 200m, 400m and 4x400m relay. He is the Delaware state-record holder in the 400m (46.21) and was named the 2013 Gatorade Delaware Boy’s Track Athlete of the Year.
Dyke, a product of Waverly, Ohio and Waverly High School, was honored as an All-American in the shot put. Dyke was the 2012 and 2013 OHSAA DII state champion in the shot put as well as the 2012 and 2013 OATCCC DII/DIII state champion in the shot put and weight throw. Dyke was recently honored by the Ohio Statehouse for his outstanding achievements in track and field.
Also receiving All-America honors in the shot is Zedella. The 2013 Cleveland Plain Dealer Boys Track Athlete of the Year attended St. Edward High School and is a native of Cleveland. Zedella took home the 2013 OHSAA DI state championship in the shot put and discus. In 2012 he was the runner-up in the shot put event.
