Meet Preview: PIAA District 5 Championships

Girls Preview - PIAA District 5 Championships

Class A

  • State Qualifying Spots For Teams: 1

Emily Coddington of North Star looks to make it two-in-a-row in District 5 in the Class A race. Last year, she went 21:18 to win by well over a minute. She's had another strong season and figures to be the heavy favorite to repeat, running under 22 minutes three times this season (something no one else in D5 has done this season). Expect Coddington to capture the title here.

Nothern Bedford's Emilee Sherlock, Meyersdale's Moriah Hersh, and North Star's Grace Leiford are among the girls who have run under 23 minutes that will look to go after individual state spots.

The team race should be very close. Meyersdale Area are the defending champions. They scored 28 points to claim the win a year ago. But Windber Area and Northern Bedford, along with Southern Fulton could make this a very interesting race for the one and only state qualifying spot allotted to D5-A.
