Girls Great 8 April 18

Tori Gerlach of Pennridge earned her 2nd PA#1 mark of the spring season at the Hurricane Invitational at Villa Maria Academy. More known for her success in the longer races, the defending AAA 3200 meter state champion ran a US#4 time of 4:49.85 in the 1600 meter run to become the first in the state to break 4:50 outdoors. So far four girls have broken five munutes and an additional seven are under 5:05 after four weeks. The 800 meter run added four new top four performances, with Angel Piccirillo of Homer Center improving on her state leading mark with a time of 2:14.75. Seline Tan-Torres of Methacton (PA#2 2:15.43) is the only other girl under 2:16. Foot Locker cross country finalist Meredith Speakman of Boiling Springs ran a PA#3 time of 10:59.96 to record the best 3200 meter time of the weekend. In the 4x800, Strath Haven reinforced their grip on the event with a US#7 time of 9:18.79 at the DELCO relays on Saturday! Pennsbury (PA#2 9:25.62) beat out Council Rock North (PA#3 9:28.82) at the Lady Skins Invitational.

 

In the sprints, Deme'shia Davis of Central Dauphin East closed the gap on the new sprint superstar Kenya Woodall of Coatesville in the 200 meter dash. Her win at the Pam Ram Invitational of 24.98 keeps her .05 seconds away from the top spot. Overall, nine girls are under 25.50 in the 200 meter dash thus far! 800 meter specialist Emma Keenan of Gwynedd Mercy Academy has continued her hiatus from her favorite event and has taken the state lead in the 400 meter dash with a dominating win of 55.85 at the Bicentennial Athletic League Invite. Sarah Helgeson of Hempfield (3) ran the 3rd sub 57 second performance of the season, running 56.7 for PA#3 honors at her home invite. The top five times in the 100 meter dash are separated by .13 seconds, with Gwynedd Mercy's Taylor Williams leading with a time of 12.15. In the sprint relays, we had two new state leaders. Central Dauphin East ran 47.87 in the 4x100 meter relay to outdistance themselves by almost a second over the rest of the state. Swenson regained their grip on the 4x400 meter relay with a state leading 3:57.36 at the Lady Skins Invite. Central Bucks West is right on their heels with a PA#2 time of 3:57.60 at the Pan Ram Invite. In the hurdles, Mary Witmer of Ephrata ran 45.04 to win the intermediate hurdles at Hempfield and earn PA#2 honors, while Emily Lelis of Springdale ran a PA#2 time of 15.01 at Butler to win the high hurdles.

 

Defending AAA triple jump state champion Lanae Newsome of Brookville became the new state leader in the triple jump with a mark of 38-7 at her home invitational. Her mark is one and half inches better than indoor runner up Diamond Hodge of Girls High. The high jump had five DIFFERENT girls clear the 5-6 mark, including indoor champion Megan McCloskey of Germantown Academy and indoor silver medalist Taylor Morgan of Upper Dublin. Six girls in total share the state lead. Larisa Debich of Hempfield (7) took over the state lead in the pole vault with a clearance of 12-8 to win a head to head contest with PA#2 Kasey Kemp of Norwin (12 feet even). In the throws, Rachel Fatherly of Williamsport took the state lead in the shot put with a big personal best of 47-11.50, the first 45 foot plus mark by anyone in either season of 2012. Jen Neider of Hickory threw a PA#2 mark of 44-6.5 to better her indoor mark. Teammate Taylor Woods took the state lead in the discus with a throw of 138-1, two feet better than teammate Lauren Lubarski (136-0.50).
