The victories and record-setting performances continued for Jenna Fesemyer of Southeast and Randy McMullen of Kent Roosevelt during the second day of the National Junior Disabilities Championship on Thursday in Ames, Iowa.

For McMullen it was another day of personal bests as he won both the 200 meters (35.2 seconds) and the 400 meters (1:10.6).

Fesemyer won the 200 meters with a new meet record of 39.3, and the 400 meters with a new NJDC record of 1:14. She also won the discus with a meet record 19.53 late Wednesday and finished second in the shot put.

Fesemyer earned Queen of the Straight honors, and will race as one of the top eight girls in the meet from all classes in the 100 meters today.

Fesemyer and McMullen also had the opportunity to meet 13 year-old Eric Rine of Bowling Green, an upcoming eighth grade student-athlete competing in the 14 and under age group.

Rine's dad, also named Eric, is originally from Ravenna. His grandparents, Elwood and Karen Rine, still call Ravenna home.
