Charger Recruit Waldie Begins Quest for Sprint Titles

Southview hopes to sprint to third straight NLL boys title


Aaron Waldie has been running in street races with twins Malcom and Michael Campbell since grade school.

They grew up chasing each other around their Sylvania neighborhood. Bragging rights about who was the fastest runner was always at stake.

Years later, they're still involved in foot races. The only difference is the fleet-footed trio are Southview teammates.

Waldie and the Campbells represent the nucleus of the Cougars boys track team seeking a third straight Northern Lakes League championship tonight at Maumee High.

"It's really great chemistry with us," Waldie said. "We all know what we're thinking and we know how we have to push each other."

The Cougars have done a solid job of pushing one another in recent years. They've also been good at staying ahead of the pack when it comes to running down the NLL championship.

"It's our senior year and it's our last chance at it," Malcolm Campbell said. "It would be a waste to win it the past two years and not win it this year."

Waldie, an All-Ohio football player who will attend Hillsdale College, ranks among the area's fastest for the 100 meters (11.0) and 200 (22.6). Waldie is a favorite to sweep the sprint events at the league meet.
