Champions run like champions regardless of the conditions, a mantra Brooklynn Broadwater lived by on Saturday. The Springside Chestnut Hill junior started her day at the PA Classic with a dominant performance in the 300 meter hurdles, running 43.87, a performance that puts her in the US top 30! Later, she ran her specialty event, the 400 meter dash, and the two time indoor state champion ran 58.73 through the cold and wind for PA#2 honors!
Nicolette Serratore of Methacton showed her versatility and her potential as a future heptathlete at the college level. The senior was a double winner at the PA Classic, winning the javelin with a PA#3 mark of 125-1, tied for the 3rd best mark of her career. Later, she went to the triple jump runway and came out victorious with a PA#5 36-2.75, her best outdoor mark for nearly two years!
Jack Tidball of Tunkhannock had the right idea and travelled down to North Carolina State to compete in the high school boys 3200 meter run at the Raleigh Relays. Tidball finished 13th with a state leading time of 9:26.49, which is just half a second slower than his lifetime best 9:26.01 he ran back at the District 2 championships last May!
He's back! Jordan Geist of Knoch had a tough end to his indoor season, finishing 4th at the New Balance Indoor National meet in the shot put, throwing nearly four feet off his personal best. On Saturday, he got back up and at his home relay meet, threw an outdoor personal best and US#2 mark of 63-7.50, over two feet better than the 61-4 he threw at this time last year!
