TSTCA #1 Recap

We had a packed last week where we named our captains and competed in our first meet.

Leland, Carter, Jonah, Sera, Julia, Izzy, and Lindsey were named captains for the 2019 Indoor Season. Congrats to all of them. Their teammates listed work ethic, positive attitude, the fun they bring to team as a few of the reasons why they are worthy to be our captains for the season.

Our first meet saw several newcomers to our team compete. Ava Starks (60m, 4x200m relay), Julia Nagle (400m), Mallory McCauley (Long jump, Triple jump, 4x200m Relay), Madi Mazza (200m, DMR), and Taylor Wright (60m Hurdles, 4x200m relay) donned the SJCA TF shield in Edinboro as they kicked off their careers. Congrats!

We had several strong performances throughout Saturday as we shrugged off some of the Christmas Break rust. Izzy Warren set two school records on the day with a winning leap of 35-1.5 in the triple jump and a 4th place finish in the 60m hurdles (10.16). Carter Kauffman was victorious in the mile as he obliterated the field with 60s final 400! The girls’ distance medley relay team of Lindsey Carmack, Madi Mazza, Myah Chappelle, and Sera Mazza put on a show as they nearly lapped the field with their winning effort. Other place winners included Sera Mazza and Lindsey Carmack in the mile, third and sixth, respectively.

He ran a strong race to finish 13th in 9:22.01, a few ticks off of his school record and good enough for #2 All-Time in school history.
