PTXC Weekend Wrap (Week 7)

John H. Shaner Memorial Meet - MEET RECAP


It was definitely a fast day for the 3200m races. Wilson's Alison Willingmyre ran a time of 10:42.53, a new personal best in this event. This time now ranks Willingmyre as PA #4 in a very talented field of distance runners. Willingmyre is clearly on the right track to ending her senior season with success. She has yet to run the 1600m in an invitational this season, and when she does, we anticipate another fast time after her performance this weekend.

Fleetwood freshman Mikayla Moats ran a 5:08.04 to win the 1600m race against Gillian Kasitz of Boyertown. Kasitz ran a 5:10.74 in the 1600m and then came back to win the 800m running 2:19.38.

Exeter's Faith Kehinde broke 60 seconds to win the 400m in 59.79.

Kayla Gillen of Twin Valley jumped 5 ft. 4 in. this weekend over Tori Stembridge of Wyomissing Area.

Twin Valley's Jordan Walk came out on top in the triple jump with a jump of 16 ft 8.75 in. over Oley Valley's Madison Wolf. Walk also got 2nd in the 100m dash.

Also in the jumps, Olivia Jenkins of Schuylkill Valley won the triple jump with a jump of 34 ft 9.5 inches.

In the throws, Quinn Spraut of Wilson won the javelin with a throw of 167 ft. 10 in. to beat Evan Gianetti of Boyertown. Gianetti wasn't too far off first with a throw of 162 ft. 2 inches.

Schuylkill Valley's Brendan Sparr had a big jump of 22 ft. 2.5 in. to win the long jump over his teammate Joe Jardine. Jardine, however, was busy winning the pole vault, jumping 14 ft even.
