For the second year in a row, a Boehler for Calvert will run in four events at state.
And as any sibling rivalry goes, someone always ups the ante.
Shane Boehler took that role Friday, racing to state in two individual races and anchoring the Senecas there in two relays at the Division III regional at Frost-Kalnow to nudge his way past brother Ren's accomplishment of making it to state last year in four relays.
But it's not like there's any official lines being drawn in the sand.
"To compare those two is like comparing ...," said coach Stewart Behm, struggling to find the right description. "I don't know. You can't compare them, because they're so much alike. They both work hard, they both put in a tremendous amount of time in the offseason ... ."
And in the postseason, especially Shane in the regional.
The junior captured second in the 100 in 11.09 and ran fourth in the 200 in 22.56.
In between, he anchored the Senecas to second in the 4x200 in 1:31.4 before helping them bring home the title in the 4x100 in 43.87 to become just the third Seneca since 1999 to reach state in four events in one year.
"I'm excited for it," Shane Boehler said. "It's going to be a little tiring, but it's what I wanted to do all year so I'm glad I did it."
Austin Ball, Tyler Long and Ren Boehler filled out both relays, and Boehler the anchor said the foursome had hoped to capture both relays after ending the prelims two days earlier with the fastest times in each.
"We wanted to win because we won the 4x2 last year. We came in with the best time. I know it was hot for prelims day, so everyone ran well [then]. It was cool [Friday] so I don't know if we all got warmed up real well, but I'm still glad with our time," he said. "We ran real well."
The Boehler boys are veterans when it comes to the regional, Behm said, but the team's overall inexperience might have played a role in the runner-up finish in the 4x200.
"I think a little of that, and I talked to them afterward, was nerves in a couple new guys. Ren and Shane have been here before," he said. "Austin and Tyler, I think nerves got to them a little bit. Austin admitted to me he didn't feel 100 percent today, but he still ran good; proud of what he did and we got another week to work on it. We're going to do great."
Another area boy with another week to go is Old Fort's Marcus Meyers, who finished third in the 1,600.
The senior ran fifth for most of race until final 300 meters, when he moved up two spots to end in 4:28.75, following a plan in which he had confidence.
"I'm pretty confident with my kick. I feel like I had a better mental game today than I did physically; didn't feel very good, 'but just stay mentally tough, keep going,' and it got me to Columbus," he said. "That's all I was thinking about.
"I didn't feel as good as I did at districts, but I came through, I guess, and that's all that matters," he said.
