“I was very pleased with how we competed as a group,” Ohio State head coach Robert Gary said. “This is a special group of guys who, when they rally together, is a very tough and talented team. We got beat pretty soundly last year and it shows the culture of our program is really improving when we can win a pretty competitive meet without doubling all of our guys and running some off events. The team and I are very excited to put our best foot forward with Drake Relays and then focus on individual events at the Jesse Owens Track Classic.”

Next weekend the Buckeyes will head to Des Moines, Iowa, the site of this seasons NCAA championships for the Drake Relays.
