The Gahanna Lincoln High School boys and the Reynoldsburg girls track and field teams turned in a dominating performance to easily win Division I regional titles Friday at Pickerington High School North.

The Lions collected 81 points, outdistancing second-place Reynoldsburg (48). Big Walnut (38), Hilliard Darby (34) and Brookhaven (32) rounded out the top five.

"We're going to go into the state meet this week and do the same thing we've been doing," Gahanna coach Ed Rarey said. "We plan on being a very competitive team and show them that Gahanna is there."

The Raiders girls team scored 113 points to win its second consecutive title as Hilliard Davidson (65), Pickerington North (38), Pickerington Central (35) and Darby (35) rounded out the top five.

"The girls ran great," Reynoldsburg coach Denny Hammond said. "They ran phenomenal. They threw well. Melissa (Dodaro) did a great job."

The top-four place finishers in each event advance to the state, which is Friday and Saturday at Ohio State.

Gahanna received several stellar performances, led by junior Blake Heriot, who set regional records in winning the 100 (10.56 seconds) and 400 meters (47.25).

Heriot also won the 200 (21.34) and joined Harry McFann, Arnez Franklin and Herman Washington on the third-place 1,600 relay (3:21.66). McFann also won the 800 (1:54.59).

"We don't have depth, but we have excellent athletes," Heriot said. "All the athletes here are pretty much going to states."

Sophomore Taniesha Cordell led the Reynoldsburg girls, winning the 800 in a regional-record time of 2:11.63.

"It was a great, great race," said Cordell, a two-time state qualifier. "I worked hard and I got pushed, and that's what I've been waiting for. It helped my game and hopefully I helped others PR as well."

Cordell was also part of the record-setting 1,600 relay (3:46.22) along with Faith Washington, Destinee Gause and Azia Walker.

Cordell, Alonda Marchello, Melanie Marx and Dani Watson opened the competition on Wednesday by winning the 3,200 relay (9:21.75).

Other regional champions for Reynoldsburg were Dodaro in the discus (138 feet, 7 inches) and shot put (41, 10 ); Gause, Washington, Kacia Grant and Walker in the 800 relay (1:40.15); Abby Timblin, Ashley Phillips, Grant and Gause in the 400 relay (48.37); Walker in the 400 (55.41); and Gause in the 200 (24.14).
