Ocean City boys' track team outscores Oakcrest to win title.
The disappointment of not repeating as sectional champions lasted just one week for the Ocean City High School boys' winter track squad.

Miles Schoedler is known to cover great distances in a short amount of time, but he may have even topped himself this weekend.

That all changed when the sectionals were pushed back a week. Schoedler, who signed a letter of intent to run for Georgetown University on Thursday, learned of the postponement at noon Friday, and was booked on a plane to Boston by 1 p.m. Schoedler went on to win the boys one-mile run with a time of four minutes, 16.92 seconds on Saturday at the Reggie Lewis Center on the campus of Roxbury Community College.
