With the 82nd running of the Mansfield Mehock Relays coming up on Saturday, one of the local runners who will be competing in the event is Colonel Crawford junior Clay Martin. For Martin it will be his first time running at Mehock and it's something he's looking forward to.

Martin will compete in the 1,600 meters where he has run a 4:39 during the early portion of the season, but is hoping to get down to 4:20 by the end of the campaign, which he believes will get him to state.

Martin will be one of 830 athletes at Mehock Field, with 408 girls, 422 boys, and 74 teams competeing in the event.  The prestigious meet has even attracted school's from Canada and five from the state of Michigan.

The field also includes returning boys team champion Lakewood St. Edward and girls team champion Toledo Notre Dame Academy.
