Krista Simkins just before taking first in to win the 4x200 in 1:45.61 with a 24.1 split.

What a meet for Krista Simkins and Wissahickon, a team that must be considered for a chance at the state championships. Simkins posted a 24.69 200 (a new meet record), offered a 24.1 come-from-behind split to win the 4x200 in 1:45.61, and contributed to the 4:02.62 4x400 win. Angela Wells of Simon Gratz unleashed the US#2 Long Jump, a 19-05.50, and a new meet record. Harrisburg's Brianna Flagg took the top spot in PA with a Shot Put of 43-04. The boys were no less spectacular, as Mike Wray of Central posted a US#6 8.03 60 Hurdles (new meet record) after an 8.11 in the trials. Bensalem's LaMonte Louis also had a great day, going 50.13 in the 400 and anchoring the 4x200 to a 1:32.46 win.

In other action, Brianna Flagg of Harrisburg had a battle with Coatesville Junior Tayvon Gray in the Shot Put, with both over 40'. Flagg has a new PA #1 and US#3 at 43-4, while Gray threw 40-05.50. Jannea Bridgeford, Upper Darby, took over US#4 in the 60 Dash at 7.61, a new meet record. Wilson's Shawn Smith set a meet record in the Long Jump, going 22-6. And Central Dauphin's Ryan Whiting set a meet record in the Shot Put, with a throw of 60-1. And the boys 800 had four guys within a second, with Central's Mike Syrnick going 1:59.23, holding off Matt Gould, Hatboro Horsham (1:59.43), Eric Bowles, Upper Dublin, 3rd in 1:59.73, and North Penn's Haibo Lu, 4th in 1:59.87.
