The 7th Annual Comet Clinic was a huge success Saturday, entertaining 1,000 coaches and athletes from the state of Ohio. Teams came as far as Mechanicsburg. The free clinic was sponsored by ASICS with the help of local sponsors Sliman’s and The Brew Kettle. A vast variety of coaches with knowledge and expertise across the track and field spectrum helped educate athletes and coaches.
