  • Perry hurdler Camille Neutzling took advantage of a second chance at this year’s OHSAA State Track and Field Championships.
  • After earning an at-large bid, Neutzling finished eighth in the 300 hurdles final.
  • Neutzling made multiple state appearances during her high school career.

Perry’s Camille Neutzling ended her high school career with her biggest goal accomplished: a state medal.

At first it seemed like a heartbreaking ending. Neutzling crossed the line at the regionals in fifth place in both the 100 and 300 hurdles finals. The top four automatically qualify for the state meet.

“I had no idea how much time I needed to qualify. All I thought was that I had to at least finish fourth,” Neutzling said.

She found out after her regional meet race that her time in the 300 hurdles was sufficient. Neutzling received one of the desired major bids. These are given to the next two best times from all four regions combined.
