The ratio of We’s to I’s is the best indicator of the development of a team. – Lewis B. Ergen
We will open our season with the Mount Lebanon Invitational on April 7! View the full schedule.
After their fourth place finish at the PTFCA Indoor Track and Field State Championship, the Distance Medley Relay teamed received Honorable Mention All-State recognition from the PTFCA. Congrats Ladies!
We had a historic Day at the PTFCA Indoor Track and Field Championships. Julia got our day started with a runner-up finish in heat #1 of the mile that earned her 10th place overall in a new school record of 5:14.58!
After a few hours recovery, Julia was ready for her 1200m leg to lead off the distance medley relay team as she partnered with Myah Chappell (400m leg), Addie Ebbs (800m), and Sera Mazza (1600m). The girls ran a phenomenal race as they made the race from the gun and were in it with a chance to win the whole race. They would end up 4th overall in a new school record of 12:33.98!
It was a great end to our epic indoor season that saw our record book rewritten many times over! The team will enjoy a few days off before we begin our prep for outdoors. Thanks for the continued support!
We closed out our regular season at the Horace Ashenfelter Track for State High Invite #3. We had limited entries since the meet serves as the Indoor Mid Penn Championships. We are able to enter those who had the state qualifying standard or were close to it.
The girls’ distance medley relay got us started with a bang! They smashed the school record by cutting nearly 20s off of our previous best by running 12:39.96. Julia, Myah, Addie, and Sera were on their ‘A’ Game as they lapped the field for the win as their time is now PA #5!
Izzy finished second in triple jump with a leap of 33-10.75. She had a consistent series on the runway.
Julia lowered the school in the mile with runner-up finish in 5:16.87! Her new personal best should be close to qualifying her to the PTFCA State Championship. Sera added a 6th place finish in 5:38.12.
Carter closed out our night with a 6th place finish in the 3000m. He crossed the line in 9:27.41. It was strong race as he battles with the leaders in the early stages.
Next up will be the PTFCA Indoor Track and Field Championships on Feb. 25!
We traveled to Lehigh University yesterday for the PTFCA Indoor Track Carnival. The meet has an entry cap, so we were only able to get a few athletes into the meet. We kicked off our day with the girls 4x800m relay. The team of Julia, Myah, Addie, and Sera ran a school record time of 10:08.61 to finish ninth overall. Izzy was up next in the long jump. She leaped 15-3.25 for 22nd place. After a break in action for us, Carter took to the track for the 3k. 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. The girls distance medley relay team of Julia, Izzy, Addie, and Sera closed out our day with a new school record (our first time under 13 mins!) of 12:58.13 to finish 5th overall! The time ranks as PA #10. It was a strong meet and necessary day as we push towards of goals of the season.
The indoor action has heated up since the calendar has turned to February. The record book took another hit which was fueled by several top 10 performances on the night. We will take a few athletes to Lehigh on Saturday for PTFCA Indoor Track Carnival.
