LEBANON – The alarm went off way too early, just like it usually does.

A few morning hours passed, before he was competing in his first time trial of the day. Minutes later, he would sprint to victory in that particular event, the 100-meter dash.

Then it was on to the long jump, where he was seeded first. But before he could complete his competition there, it was time to anchor Annville-Cleona’s 400-meter relay team.

Jumping down from the medal podium, he raced back over to the long-jump runway. But there was still the matter of the 200-meter dash, for which he had enough energy remaining to smoke his competition.

When it was all said and done, he was understandably winded and tired. But it was a good tired.

IMG_8234It was one of those days for Stanley Miller at Saturday’s annual Lebanon County Track and Field Championships, which was contested under sunny skies at Lebanon High School.

And it was another one of those days for the Cedar Crest thinclads.

Miller, the Little Dutchmen’s senior sprinter, was voted the Outstanding Male Athlete at the county’s premiere scholastic sporting event. And the Falcon boys extended their Lebanon County record of T&F team championships to an amazing 21 in-a-row.

Cedar Crest collected a total of 157 team points to top rival Palmyra’s 139. The host Cedars were third, while Miller and Annville-Cleona were fourth, followed by Elco and Northern Lebanon.

“It’s older than some of these guys have been alive,” said Cedar Crest head coach Rob Bare, of what has become affectionately known locally as ‘The Streak.’ “Now we’re starting a new decade. It’s a great accomplishment. We’re going to enjoy this one.

IMG_8270“We have six captains,” continued Bare. “But we have guys stepping up all over the place. It’s a special group of young men.”

“It’s really important to me,” said Miller of the Outstanding Athlete award. “Of all the years I’ve had success, this award proves to me that I’m the best I could be. I showed my coaches I could do it. Since the beginning of the season, it was one of my goals.

“The 100 is my favorite event, hands down,” Miller continued. “It’s like putting a bunch of cars together and telling them, ‘Go as fast as you can’. I like going all out. In the 200 I go a little easier, then when I hit the 100-meter mark, I go into ‘all out’ mode.”

Miller gave everything he had, all day long.

He edged Falcon Chris Rios by .18 seconds to finish first in the 100 dash. In the 200 meters, Miller turned on the jets to push past Lebanon’s De’Undre Andrews, 23.37 seconds to 24.18.

Miller eventually won the long jump, by two inches over Nick Morder of Palmyra, with an effort of 20-3. His only regret was that he couldn’t make up a deficit given to him by his teammates in the 400-meter relay event, and Annville-Cleona fell to the Lebanon team of Christian Manzolillo, Hari Hallen, Andrews and Juan Maldonado.

“I would do one or two jumps and then go back and do finals,” said Miller of the long jump. “I probably did that five or six times. I barely got two consecutive jumps in. I like to see where I’m at. If I’m in second or third, I’ll cruise into the finals.

“It’s funny,” added Miller. “We start out with a plan in our heads. But when  you get here and you hear the crowd, you want to give it your all and win. I wanted to make sure it was a good show for them. I wanted to win as many events as I could. But it was a very successful day.”

“Stanley had a very good day,” said Bare. “I voted for him for Outstanding Athlete. He’s a great athlete. He’s got great speed. He’s a fantastic jumper. And he’s a great kid.”

IMG_8354Cedar Crest emerged with first-place finishes in just five of the 18 events. But two of those wins came in relays, and the Falcons compiled enough seconds and thirds to extend their domination.

Falcon Nick Blandy was the top finisher in the 400-meter dash, while teammate Tyler Eisehauer bested Elco’s Elijah Herb to win the 110 high hurdles. In the field, Cedar Crest senior Tanner Miller turned in a 175-10 effort to cop the javelin.

Blandy teammed with Adam Loehr, William Sheffield and Adam Wolfe to posted a winning time of 3:36.92 in the four-by-four. The Falcons also claimed the top spot in the 3200-meter relay.

“We might not have the guys who can win all those events,” said Bare. “But in dual meets, we have guys who can get seconds and thirds. Some of my favorite words are ‘heart’, ‘desire’ and ‘Falcon pride.’

“Year in and year out, we want to be competitive in Lebanon County,” added Bare. “There’s been some great, great battles over the years.”

Palmyra’s Garrett Miller triumphed into two throwing events, the shot, with a heave of 46-2, and the discus, with a throw of 133-7. The Cougars received stellar distance outings from Matt Carroll, who won the 1600-meter run in 4:29.44, and Jakolby Fackler and Zach Toth, who went one-two in the 3200-meters.

IMG_8394On their home turf, the Cedars were well represented by Maldonado. Maldonado skied to victory in the high jump with a leap of 5-10, and used a 43-7.5 to edge runner-up Christian Trader of Northern Lebanon for a win in the triple jump.

Lebanon’s Riley Klick took the checkered flag in the 800-meter race, nearly five seconds ahead of his competition.

Grant Brubaker of Elco was crowned Lebanon County’s king of 300 meter hurdles, while Raider teammate Jared Weaver took top honors in the pole vault by clearing 12-0.
