Weekend Rundown: Recapping The Rest Of A Big Weekend

Douglas W. Wesner Invitational - Meet Recap


Mackenzie Horn of Manheim Township continued what has been an amazing year once more in the girls' pole vault. Horn, who jumped 13-0 last week, one-upped herself and jumped 13-3, a new PA#1 and US#4 for the win. 

Horn also added a win in the 55-meter hurdles, winning in a time of 8.98.

Twin Valley's Kayla Gillen put down a strong performance for a second straight week. The senior cleared 5-6 this week, matching her Kutztown performance from the previous week. It ties her own PA#1 in the event, as well.

Reading's Keeley Suzenski improved upon her season best in the shot put. Suzenski earned the win against a strong field of competitors, tossing a best of 41-7.75. That's a new PA#2 for the junior.

The Cardinal O'Hara girls ran away with the DMR win, clocking a new PA#7 time of 13:06.21. Christine Manicni, the 800 meter leg on that DMR, also ran the open 800 and won in 2:24.36.

Selinsgrove's Megan Hoffman took second in the 55 meter dash in a time of 7.41, a PA#11.


Lower Merion's Romaine Rhoden kept his great season going in the sprints. He picked up a pair of wins on Saturday. He ran 6.55 to win the 55 meters in a close race, then came back later in the afternoon to finish his day off with a win in the 200 meters in 22.79.

The 1,600 meters was competitive with Brenden Miller of Upper Dauphin (who blasted a quick 3K a few weeks ago) winning in 4:30.35 over Wyomissing's Ben Kuhn (second in 4:32).

Payton Morris of East Pennsboro won the pole vault with a jump of 15-2 for his fifth win in six meets. He remains at PA#1 after a 15-7 last week. In the long jump, Lampeter-Strasburg's Ezra Mellinger jumped 21-11 for his third of the season.

Current PA#1 Keith Dreese of Selinsgrove picked up the win in the shot put to remain undefeated on the season. His winning throw measured out at 54-6.
