3/25 WKND: Krais takes 3. Hannon wins 2 with one MR @ COLD PA Track Classic (ALL PIX NOW ON) Don Rich Mar 24, 2006

Weekend Highlights: It was cold, damp, cloudy... and basically a great day for ducks and distance runners. But for sprinters and jumpers, it was a day to be careful with hamstrings and not risk the season on an early meet. But that didn\'t stop two sprinters from earning Track Athletes of the Meet at the 22nd Pennsylvania Track Classic @ Plymouth-Whitemarsh... as Ryann Krais of Methacton and Kenneth Talley of Simon Gratz dominated their events, as did Erin Hannon of Bradford, who set the only meet record on the day. The West Chester Henderson girls showed their depth in relays with three top four finishes at the PTFCA Indoor State Championships... and simply picked up where the left off in their first outdoor meet at the Phoenix Relays @ Phoenixville HS... taking the 4x100 in 50.16, the 4x200 in 1:47.44, the 4x400 in 4:05.99, the Sprint Medley Relay in 4:34.11, and the Distance Medley Relay in 12:56.32. At the Brother Jerome Invitational @ Saint Basil, Archbishop Prendergast and host Saint Basil dominated the relay part of the meet, with Basil taking the 4x800 in 9:58.9 and the DMR in 13:03.3; and Prendie winning the 4x200 in 1:39.5 and tying Bishop McDevitt in the 4x100 at 52.4. The host Liberty girls captured six of the contest on both the track and in the field events at the \"Pop\" Emrey Warm-Up Relays @ Liberty HS to take the team title with a whopping 174 points. It mattered not that the Strath Haven girls were competing in the small school division at the Chichester Relays @ Chichester HS. They would have won six of the track/field relays in either division. As it was, they captured a whopping 11 of the events in Division II, six on the track and five in the field.Over 900 pix for the PA Track Classic now on.
