12/16 INDOOR WEEK #3 SUMMARY: You could consider the 12/15 HILL SCHOOL INVITATIONAL Ryann Krais\' early December warm-ups. The Methacton junior won three individual events and anchored the winning 4x400. Glen Mills\' Semaj Spencer took two, the high and long jumps. And Chestnut Hill Academy\'s Wayne Crawford was out there nicely in the shot put, going nearly 57 feet. On Saturday at Haverford College in the TFCAGP D2 INDOOR MEET #3, Strath Haven\'s Rob Speare posted a very quick 8:52.6 3000, which amazingly, is the 2nd best 3K over the first three weeks of the season. In the 800, Khaliff Featherstone, Simon Gratz; Elliott Rhodes, Germantown Academy; and Jamar Jones, Engineering & Science, all broke two minutes, but none were under 1:59. Can you say tight? At the TFCAGP D1 INDOOR MEET #3, Boyertown\'s Mark Dennin became the 3rd guys under 9 in this young season. Central Bucks South won the DMR. Jay Pittenger stayed in the clouds in the High Jump. At the DICKINSON COLLEGE HS INVITE #1, the girls 55 hurdles were quick with Hughesville\'s Rachel Houseknecht edging Reading\'s Jazmin Hunt. Matt Davis of Harrisburg was a winner in the Long Jump and 200, while teammate Alysha Cook pulled off the 55-200 sprint double. In the first big meet at the New York Armory at the 53rd BISHOP LOUGHLIN GAMES, Easton\'s Abby Schaffer won the Pole Vault, clearing 12\'. Chester\'s Shaniel Chambers took 2nd in the 600 meters. At the FRANKLIN & MARSHALL HS INVITATIONAL #1, Kaleena Gray of Coatesville got off to a great start, taking the Shot Put with a throw over 43\'. Hempfield junior Sydney Clark toured 3000 meters in under 11 minutes. And two McCaskey sprinters took the 55 and 55 Hurdles. On Monday 12/18 in the PCL GIRL\'S INDOOR MEET #1, frosh Amanda Bascelli of Archbishop Carroll picked up where she left off after a stellar cross country debut, winning the 3000, with Archbishop Prendergast\'s Erica Matticola about a second back. The next night at the PCL BOY\'S INDOOR MEET #1, Leemue Koimene of Father Judge won the high jump and Bonner\'s Sean Wilkes took the shot put. S. Mallon of Archbishop Ryan doubled in the winning the 800 and mile, while the O\'Hara relays captured the 4x200 and 4x400.
