5/2 - Ian Fitzgerald pulls away running 9:11


The season gets late, and the weeks of training begin to show their desired results. Coming off a somewhat surprising (smartly run) 2nd place in the Penn Relays 3000, North Hills junior Ian Fitzgerald put his new found reputation to the test against Mount Lebanon's James O'Toole. Both ran very fast for an early May meet, as Fitzgerald pulled out the win in 9:11.49 for 3200.O'Toole was second in 9:13.52. West Allegheny's Chris Nardi raised the bar in the High Jump, clearing 6-08.25. He also took the 110 Hurdles in 14.78. Melanie Buczko, Butler, cleared 12-0 for the Pole Vault victory. ANd Penn-Trafford's Mycaiah Clemons went 44.36 for a win in the 300 Hurdles. She also won the 100 Hurdles in 14.86. Other double winners included Andrew Johnson in the 100 (10.79) and 200 (22.19); Galen Rivers, Great Valley (who went way west for this one), 39.13 in the 300 Hurdles and 44-05 in the Triple Jump: Austin Papay, Sharon, in the Discus (164-07) and Shot Put (57-11.50); and Elyse Good, Ambridge, in the 100 (12.47) and 200 (25.71).
