LIVE STREAM: PTFCA Indoor Track Carnival



The PTFCA Indoor Track Carnival is set for Saturday, February 10th. The event will be streamed on MileSplit, with archived footage being posted after the event HERE. The meet is currently scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM.

9 Events to Watch:

Boy's Pole Vault

The boy's Pole Vault has the potential to steal the show. No surprise there. 

Mason Bucks (Palmyra) and Breckin Swope (East Pensboro Area) will face off for the fourth time this year. Both boys are tied for the state lead at 15-9, but Swope leads the series three to one. 

Jayden Packer (Shikellamy), Drake Risser (Lower Dauphin), and Brody Weachter (Hempfiled) are other noteworthy vaulters set to compete.

Girl's 60m Dash

Macaela Walker (Oxford Area), current state lead in the 55m dash with a 7.02, is entered for her 60m debut. She'll have to face Milan Ramey (Harriton), the current PA No. 6 at 7.76. 

Viktorya Luckenbach (Pine Grove Area) and Alasia Mosley (Chester), tied for eighth in the state at 7.80, shouldn't be overlooked either. 

Girl's 200m Dash

State leader Avery Lewis (Friends' Central) will headline the 200m dash.

Lewis will enter the meet seeded at 24.14, 0.79-seconds ahead of second-seeded competitor Amirah Nesmith (Cheltenham). However, don't underestimate Nesmith, as she'll be looking to improve upon her 24.93 from earlier this season. 

Girls 60m Hurdles

Like Lewis in the 200m dash, state leader Macaela Walker (Oxford Area) will take to the track in the 60m hurdle. 

Walker leads the state in the 55m and 60m hurdles, 8.07 for the 55mH, and 8.68 for the 60mH. 

Damira Allen (Chester) and Maggie Scalzo (Eastern Area) are other standouts.

Girls Shot Put

Erin Miles (Milton Hershey) is the current girls shot put state leader but will have some solid competition in Jaya Jones (Central) and Liv Kopitsky (Mount Carmel) on Saturday.

Miles has thrown 40-0 this season, but that was back in December. Jones and Kopitsky have thrown season-bests over 38 feet and shown more consistency over the recent weeks. 

It will be interesting to see how things play out between three of the state's top shot putters. 

Boys Shot Put

Brady Mider (Berks Catholic) is another individual you can expect to dominate their event. 

Mider leads the state with an impressive 61-8.25 from the 12th Annual Shot Put Night in the Valley. 

Peter Mertz (Chambersburg) and Colin Melhorn (Selinsgrove) are also competing. 

Girls Long Jump 

Avery Lewis will be looking for her second win on the day in the long jump. 

Lewis leads the state with a mark of 20-6.5.

Nataly Walters (Palmerton Area) and Kiala Bright (Academy Park) are other top-ranked individuals. 

Girls 4x800m Relay

State-leader Upper Dublin must bring its A-game in the 4x800m relay.

Upper Dublin ran 9:35.32 back in December and will need to be ready for the strong Emmaus squad that is fresh off of a 9:41.95 effort. PA No. 8, Central, shouldn't be overlooked either. 

High Jumps

Keep an eye on the boys' and girls' high jump, as multiple athletes are ranked at the PA No. 2 position. 

On the boy's side, Jayden Ekoko (Easton Area) and Ty'Shawn Ewings (Harrisburg) have both cleared 6-6 this season.

As for the girls, Niya Jeffers (Chester), Lexi Boiardi (Avon Grove), and Destini Smith (Souderton Area) have all cleared 5-6. 

These matchups should make for some exciting competition.
