Day 2 Summary


History was made, champions defended, and others doubled as day 2 of the PIAA State Championships was an electrifying conclusion to the 2014 outdoor season!


Central Bucks South girls lived up to the hype of their incredible success and came away with the PA All Time state record in the 4x800 meter relay! CB South contended with Strath Haven and Great Valley for the state championship in a race that saw the lead change on several occasions. After a big 3rd leg from Alexa Kwapinski (2:12) broke it open, Brianna Stratz (2:09) sealed the record! The two of them were joined by lead off leg Kaitlin Poiesz (2:14), and 2nd leg Amber Stratz (2:12) to run a new record of 8:51.49 to break the 2011 record held by West Chester Henderson! Strath Haven dipped under that record as well with a PA#2 all time of 8:55.39! Great Valley finished 3rd with a PA#4 all time performance of 8:56.82!

Marissa Sheva of Pennridge fed off the pacing of Regan Rome of Dallas and Paige Stoner of Pottsville to set herself up for a big kick in the final 600 meters. Once she kicked, the junior never looked back and came away with her first outdoor state gold medal in 10:25.85! Rome medaled in this event for the 3rd year in a row with a runner up finish in 10:31.58! Stoner finished 3rd in 10:41.96 for her best track finish of her career. Brianna Schwartz of Shaler Area looked for the state meet record in the 1600 meter run, only for Madeleine Davidson of North Allegheny to come close to spoiling the party. After the record became out of reach, Schwartz did all she could to hold off the sophomore and successfully repeated as champion in 4:46.95. Maddie Villalba of Central Bucks West spoiled the dreams of Meredith Newman of Manheim Township in the last 30 meters to win the 800 meter run! Newman went for broke and led the first 400 meters in 60.9 seconds, a good 3 seconds ahead of the field. As Newman hit the final 100, the power went away and Villalba gained ground and pounced on the opportunity to win her first gold medal! Her time of 2:09.65 is good for PA#3.

In the sprints, Katelyn Jackson of Cheltenham had the best start out of the blocks of her career in the 100 meter final to snag the title from lane 6 in 11.78! Later, she would take home the 200 meter dash in 23.93 to seal the 100/200 double! McKenna Keegan of Avon Grove ran another big personal best in the 400 meter dash to win her first gold medal in 55.15! In the high hurdles, Ciara Leonard of Cheltenham broke the PIAA meet record of Ryan Krais in the 100 meter hurdles with a semifinal time of 13.65, a record that last six years. In the finals, Leonard ran 13.89 to win the championship. In the intermediate hurdles, Hempfield (7) junior and one of the big stars of the day, Maddie Holmberg, ran 42.73 to win the gold medal.

In the other relays, Hempfield (7) controlled the 4x100 meter relay with a PA#2 time of 47.04, which was one of four gold medals on the weekend for the AAA girls team champions. Central Bucks West got one of the finishes of the weekend from anchor Jamila Branch to surpass Kristen Miller and Strath Haven to the 4x400 meter relay championship. CB West ran 3:47.82 to win by .06 seconds!

In the field events, Sierra Brabhim-Lawrence of Harrisburg made up for a challenging day on the track with a gold medal in the triple jump with a 39-7 to earn a four inch win of Stephanie Laudien of Hempfield (3). In the discus, Taylor Hojnacki of Central Bucks South successfully defended her championship with a winning throw of 140-7. Bridget Guy of Hempfield (7) won the pole vault championship with a clearance of 12-6.

AAA Boys

The weather was perfect for a fast 3200 meter run and the athletes put on quite a show. The pack went through the 1600 meter mark in under 4:30 and went through 2400 in 6:45. Tony Russell of West Chester Henderson tried to break away from Ross Wilson of Council Rock North and Colin Martin on with just over one lap to go. Russell was on pace to break the 31 year old meet record of 8:58.9 until Wilson made a huge push in the final 70 meters to surpass Russell and take the state meet record for himself! Wilson’s time of 8:56.29 led Russell (8:58.26) and Martin (8:59.90) under the nine minute mark.

Kyle Francis of Bensalem and Jeff Wiseman of Council Rock South electrified the crowd once again the 800 meter championship. Wiseman took the pace and went through 400 meters in 53 seconds Wiseman kept the lead until the last 100 meters when Francis took the lead and did just enough to hold off Wiseman for the title. Francis ran 1:49.57 to earn US#2 honors, while Wiseman ran 1:50.37 to move up to US#4! In the 1600 meter run, Zach Brehm of Carlisle won a gold medal at the state meet for the 2nd year in a row, outlasting a close field with a time of 4:11.73.

In the sprints, Demetrius Lanier of East Stroudsburg South held off Xavier Smith of Daniel Boone and Christian Brissett of Cheltenham to the 100 meter championship with a time of 10.64 to Smith’s 10.67 and Brissett’s 10.68. Brissett got his revenge in the 200 meter dash by the slightest of margins over Lanier. Both athletes were clocked in at 21.52. In the high hurdles, Montae Nicholson of Gateway took down top seed Matt Bernadowski of Elizabeth Forward with a time of 14.02. In the intermediate hurdles, Chance Post of Conestoga Valley finished unbeaten against PA in the event with a time of 36.93 to earn US#7 honors!

In the relays, Gateway won the highly anticipated 4x100 meter relay matchup with Cheltenham after the defending champions took a big lead with a strong 2nd exchange. A blazing Brissett ran out of real estate on the anchor leg to catch the champions, who were victorious in 41.16 to Cheltenham’s 41.40. Cheltenham did make up for the defeat with a win in the 4x400 meter relay in 3:17.18 to hold off Penn Wood and Pennridge for the title. In the 4x800 meter relay, State College took the lead on the final leg with the determination of Will Cather. Once the lead was taken, State College did not look back and completed the 4x800 meter state indoor and outdoor double with a state leading and US#2 time of 7:41.99! West Chester Henderson (7:43.24) and Central Bucks East (7:43.70) both cracked the US top ten!

In the field events, Tra-C Davis of Coatesville used a personal best jump to win the AAA boys high jump. The senior cleared a big mark of 6-10 to win the championship by three inches! In the shot put, Max Adams of Hempfield (7) made it two gold medals in 24 hours, winning the shot put by a wide margin with a mark of 61-4.25. Jhet Janis of Cocalico threw a US#11 203-11 to win the javelin. In the long jump, Jodan Bryan of St Joe’s Prep earned a big personal best to win the championship with a mark of 24 feet even.


Kennedy Weisner of Elk County Catholic successfully defended her championships in the 1600 and 800 meter runs with relative ease. The senior broke away from Elizabeth Chikotas of Saucon Valley to win the 1600 meter run in 4:45.99. In the 800 meter run, Weisner overpowered Shannon Quinn of Trinity (3) to defeat the junior for the 2nd year in a row with a time of 2:09.46. Chikotas did get her own gold medal to take back to Saucon Valley, breaking away late in the 3200 meter run to take home the time in 10:36.65! Quinn also managed to get her own gold medal, running a big anchor leg for her 4x800 meter relay team to take home the championship over defending champions Villa Maria Academy (10) with a time of 9:11.66!

In the sprints, Ally Bartoszewicz of Vincentian Academy was a 100 and 200 meter champion, running 12.28 to win the 100 and 24.72 to win the 200 meter dash. In the 400, Bethany Evankovich of General McLane made a big push in the last 100 meters to come away with the championship in 56.05. In the hurdles, it was the Markeeta Thomas show. The Paul Robeson junior set a new meet record in the 100 meter hurdles with a time of 14.13, and then she came back and defeated two time defending champions Emily Lelis of Springdale in the intermediate hurdles in 43.49. In the 4x100 meter relay, Central Columbia made it look like no contest with a big win of 48.15 to win by over a second. In the 4x400 meter relay, Paul Robeson continued their dominance in the division with a solid win of 3:53.80 to not only win the event, but seal the team championship.

In the field, Britni Phillips of Bloomsburg took the lead from Abby Martin of Boiling Springs on her last jump in the triple jump. Martin had one last chance on her final jump to complete the long jump/triple jump double, but came up half an inch short and Phillips won the championship with a mark of 37-7. Jenna Lucas of Fort Cherry won by over 18 feet in the javelin with a winning mark of 153-5. In the shot put, Kailyn Clancy of California Area earned a 3 foot victory with a winning mark of 45-6.75.


Domenic Peretta of Beaver Falls handled the expectations of being the favorite in the 1600 and 800 meter runs like a senior and came away with two gold medals. The sophomore showed his strength to complete the mid distance double, running 4:19.82 in the 1600 and 1:54.01 in the 800. Dominic Hockenbury of Lake Lehman led a pack through the 3200 meter run with a 1600 meter split of 4:37. His next 400 meters were run in 61 seconds and broke away from the field in a big way. Hockenbury ran solo for the final three laps on his way to the championship in 9:17.18. The 4x800 meter relay saw several lead changes, but Washington snagged the lead when it mattered most. Washington grabbed the lead in the final leg and held on with a strong finish to send Washington under the 8 minute mark in 7:58.35.

In the sprints, freshman Jahvel Hemphill of Bloomsburg blasted past his elder counterparts to win a gold medal in the 100 meter dash on his very first trip to states with a time of 10.80. Jhaloni Johnson of Springfield (Montco) was 2nd behinf Hemphill, but Johnson came back in the 200 meter dash and excelled, powering his way to victory with a time of 21.83. In the 400 meter dash, Andrew Miller of Wyomissing used his 800 meter strength to overcome a close pack of runners in the final 100 meters to win the championship in 49.30. Austin Shupp of Palmerton fought off Donaldo Benjamin of Delaware Valley Charter to take home the 110 meter hurdles title in 14.23. Benjamin and Shupp went at it once again in the 300 meter hurdles and were neck and neck with one hurdle to go. But when Shupp took a misstep, Benjamin took advantage and won the rematch with a time of 37.53.

Bishop McDevitt (3) held off Church Farm School by the slightest of margins to come away with the 4x100 meter title with a time of 42.86. Riverside (7) came from behind in the 4x400 meter relay against favorites Delaware Valley Charter to win the gold medal with a time of 3:23.12.

In the field, Chris Stone of Springfield Montco was running back and forth between the high jump and the pole vault during the afternoon session. His heroics earned him two medals, one of them being gold. The junior won the high jump with a mark of 6-7 and he cleared the same height as champion Gus Yahner of Northern Cambria, but earned 2nd place based on misses. Blake Over of Northern Bedford came away with the long jump title with a winning mark of 22-4 to hold off Gregory Johnson of Schuylkill Valley. In the discus, Austin Sheridan of Riverside (7) threw 168-10 to win the title by nearly seven feet over shot put champion Luke Lewis of Hickory. 


Day 1 Summary

Friday Field

The morning session of the field events had everything from surprises beating the odds to favorites feeling the heat on the way to championship gold.

Courtney McCartney of Selinsgrove has the performance of the meet in the early going. The junior improved on her personal best in the shot put by nearly two feet with a US#6 mark of 49-0.25 to cruise to the AAA girls title. Cyre Virgo of Fleetwood had to really work hard for it, but she managed to successfully defend her AAA girls high jump championship with a winning mark of 5-9, one inch better than Abby Jones of Franklin Area. Bre Manzolillo of Schuylkill Valley defeated Kaitlin Toman of Salisbury on misses to win the AAA girls pole vault. Both athletes cleared 12 feet. In AA girls long jump, Abby Martin of Boiling Springs came away with the title with a winning mark of 18-5.25, winning by three inches.

For the boys morning session, Kobren Frederick of Huntingdon set a personal best in the triple jump by two feet to upset the field in the AA boys triple jump. Frederick’s mark of 46-2.25 won the event by over a foot. Top seeded Michael Somiari of Richland was 2nd in 44-11.75. In the AAA boys discus, Max Adams of Hempfield (7) came close to the state record of 202-10 with a T-US#6 mark of 198-3 on his final throw. He had two throws over 190 feet on the day. In the AA boys javelin, Matt Reinhart of Berks Catholic came away victorious against the field and the wind with a winning throw of 186-7.


Maddie Holmberg of Hempfield (7) completed her unfinished business from last year’s long jump. After finishing 2nd on a tiebreaker last year, the junior ran away with the state title on a tricky day for the competitors. Holmberg overcame the wind and jumped a US#7 mark of 20-1 to win by nearly two feet! The mark was also two inches short from the PIAA meet record! Emily Campbell of Slippery Rock Area overcame the pressure and came away with the gold medal in the AA discus. The state leader threw 146-8 to claim the gold. Erica Voyzey of Tyrone Area was all smiles as she was crowned AA high jump champion with a winning clearance of 5-7! In the AAA girls javelin, freshman Maddie Wiltrout of Connellsville won the state championship in her first visit to Shippensburg with a PA#2 mark of 151-1!

Wiltrout wasn’t the only freshman to claim gold. In a rare feat, the AAA boys triple jump champion was freshman Deshawn Millington of Carlisle. The 49 foot jumper didn’t quite get to that mark, but rose to the level of the competition and came away with the championship with a mark of 48-6.50! Luke Lewis of Hickory breathed a huge sigh of relief as he won that gold medal that has eluded him for so long. The senior threw 61-8.25 to win the AA boys shot put by over 8 and a half feet! In the AAA pole vault, Ryan Wilkes of Valley View cleared 15-6 to become champion!

Malik Jones of Ridley advanced in the AAA 200 and 400 meter dashes. The top four AAA 800 meter runners are all back led by Jeff Wiseman of Council Rock South.
