COLUMBUS—Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) recognized two track and field champions from Medina county area high schools yesterday on the Senate floor.

"Both these young men represent the best of Medina county, and I'm proud to honor their accomplishments at the Statehouse," said Obhof.
