Doddridge girls track coach to be commended for job well done

The Doddridge County girls track program has long been revered as one of the best in West Virginia.

It was only fitting, then, that when the 2000 track team was put to the test during this year's state championship meet, it was more than ready for the challenge.

Tied with Grafton with just two events left, the Doddridge girls left all their competitors in the dust by winning the 4X400 and shuttle hurdle relays.

"What a battle," said Doddridge coach Craig Kellar. "I think what Grafton did would've won a lot of state meets, but to our kids' credit, they battle back."

Actually, Kellar should share in the credit, as the veteran coach has long been respected by peers, athletes and, yes, even cynical sports writers, as being one of the good guys. He truly puts his student-athletes first and keeps things in the proper perspective.

With that in mind, it is no wonder why Doddridge County's girls team is No. 1 in the state. Congratulations to Coach Kellar and his team for a job well done.

And while we're lavishing praise, we also offer a hearty "great job" to:

-- Grafton coach Paul Martin and his outstanding team, for their strong second-place finish.

-- Gilmer County's Dusty Dent, for his boys high-point performance. Dent won four individual titles to earn 32.5 points in a truly spectacular performance.

-- Lincoln's Carl Gable, for his first-place finish in the Class AA discus competition.

-- All other area athletes who qualified to participate in this year's state competition.
