05/16 PIAA District 6 AA Championships @ Mansion Park, Altoona 05/16 PIAA District 6 AA Championships @ Mansion Park, Altoona Time flies, especially when you're running around 11 seconds for the 100 and 22 for the 200. That's been the story of Brad Kanuch's career, and on Tuesday, he raced for the last time at the magnificent Mansion Park track in Altoona. The Westmont-Hilltop senior is headed to the University of Connecticut to continue his studies and play a little football and run a little track and take a crack at a few jumps. He ended with four individual wins, going 11.10, 22.31 in the 100-200, and taking the Long Jump at 22-00 and the Triple Jump at 46-00.75. The 40 points nearly helped his team win the district title, but it was the final 4x400 that put Pine-Richland over the top by three points.

Brad Kanuch ended his Altoona appearances with four wins,
taking the 100, 200, plus the Long and Triple Jumps
(11.10, 22.31, 22-00, 46-00.75.).

The Pine-Richland girls also won the team title, but by a much wider margin. The conditions were cold with occasional drizzle for most of the meet, and were almost ideal for the distance runners, but a challenge for those who had to stop and plant their feet to throw, say... a Javelin. New state-best record holder (new implement, 2002), Karlee McQuillen of Westmont-Hilltop, overcame the slippery conditions to take home the gold in both the Shot Put (35-09) and the Javelin (147-01). Emily Ingle of Tyrone pulled off the 1600-800 double, going 5:05.30 and 2:20.88. Bald Eagle Area's Amanda Reese won the 100 and 200, and was 2nd in the Long Jump. In the 3200, Carly Seymour of Central Cambria, ran alone to a 11:16.60. Connor McGee of Bale Eagle Area won both the Shot Put and Discus. Sean Domer, United, threw the Jav 188-11.

Thomas also captured the 800, going 2:13.81. Sheard took two individual titles, running 57.51 in the 400, and 15.45 in the 100 Hurdles.

And West Catholic had 1st place points in the 4x400 with a 4:02.01, and 2nd place points in the 4x100, going 48.79, being edged by just .02 by Cardinal O'Hara, whose 48.77 was a meet record. O'Hara took the top four spots in the 3200 behind Beth Kelly's 11:32.80, who was followed by Katie Kelly, Caroline Grant, and Katie McShay. Beth Kelly also won the Mile in a strong 5:07.88. The final score was 139-120, West Catholic. Hallahan's Shanae Thomas won the Long Jump at 17-01.75, the Triple Jump at 37-06, and took 3rd in the 100 with her 12.61.

It was a repeat for Monsignor Bonner following their 40-year drought-ender in 2005. The final tally of 94-92.50 over LaSalle was as close as it looks. Bonner had the advantage in points in the field events, with LaSalle taking their chunks in the distance events. Bonner went 3-4-5 in the Shot Put behind Matt Lucci's 50-02. Lucci also took 4th in the Discus, while Shawn Richey was 2nd in the High Jump. Mike Tomasco won the Long Jump with a leap of 21-06.75, and contributed a 3rd in the Triple Jump.
