Since 2006, the Ohio Cardinal Conference championship trophy has only had one owner in boys track and the current title holders have no intentions of handing it over to anyone. The Lexington Minutemen have won seven consecutive conference crowns and seem poised for an eighth straight with a veteran crew.

Dan Whittmer enters his seventh season as Lexington's head track coach and has been with the program for a dozen years. He says the biggest reason the team has been able to put together this impressive run is the incredible balance the squad always seems to have. There are seventeen events at a high school track meet and Whittmer says to win an OCC championship a team will typically need to score some points in every single one of them. The team has been able to consistently do just that and Whittmer says they may just have a team that can do it again.

 The Minutemen return some of their top performers from a season ago and not surprisingly, they each have different strengths. Senior Nick Molnar returns as the teams best long distance runner along with senior middle-distance specialists Andru and Bryant Switzer and sprinter Brandon Henderson. Whittmer says the team also has a solid thrower back and some younger guys they will look to for contributions.

The senior's say that winning the OCC again is a huge motivating factor for them, having never lost at the conference championship and not wanting to experience that. They also want to continue the legacy they have helped develop at the school and hope the run can continue for many years to come.

The first big test of the season for the Minutemen will come this weekend at the Lexington Invitational where a slew of D-1 schools and top D-2 programs will compete, including a few conference rivals. It will be the first time this season the boys will have their full compliment of athletes at a track meet, so the squad will get a chance to see how this years version of the purple and gold measures up with elite competition.

Prelims will begin at 10 a.m. at Lexington High School.
