Jillian Doane capped off her track career at Oberlin High School by placing eighth in the 300-meter hurdles and making All-Ohio. After first day preliminaries, Doane was seeded fifth with a time of 45.93. She bettered that time in the finals with a time of 45.66 — good enough to make the podium at Jesse Owens Stadium in Columbus in the Division 3 state meet.
