Kyle Long leads Knights to 2nd Team Title

Kyle Long leads Knights to 2nd Team Title

Posted by Jeff Bradley on June 15, 2011
Junior Kyle Long won the shot put and discus at the PIAA State Championship to lead the boys to their second team title in three years. Kyle broke the previous state record in the discus held by Ryan Whiting, one of America's top shot putters. Kyle threw 202' 10" to break Whiting's record. The 20 points earned by Kyle along with the six points earned by Penn Relays Javelin champ, Steve Feister, and the two points earned by Matthew Groff in the 1600 were enough to hold off Strath Haven for the title.

The year was a great success for the boys as they finished the season undefeated in dual meets, won the Lancaster- Lebanon League title, the District 3 title and the Shippensburg Invitational title before the state meet triumph.
