11th Carlisle Invitational 2003

Carlisle, PA


Frances Koons is not star-struck this year, and feels ready to compete at the national level. Don Rich Oct 2, 2003

Allentown Central Catholic senior Frances Koons came into this season confident. She used that confidence to challenge one of the country\'s best on September 13th at Spiked Shoe, finishing just nine seconds behind last season\'s Foot Locker Final\'s 4th place finisher, Laura Cummings of Bay Shore, NY. PennTrack talked with Koons after her stunning domination of the quality field 9/27 at Carlisle, and found a runner who knows she has earned her status among the nation\'s best... but she\'s not taking anything for granted.

9/27-The Deja Vu-Two go 1-2, Koons leads wire-to-wire, Carlisle boys, Parkland girls @ Carlisle Don Rich Sep 28, 2003

Brian Fuller of Cumberland Valley, and Craig Miller, the soph from Manheim Township, battled to the finish again, and for the fourth time in six races over two years, they finished with a second of each other. Meanwhile, Allentown Central Catholic star Frances Koons took off at the gun and was never challenged. And the Carlisle boys and Parkland girls won tough races to say they\'re back in the hunt for state glory.
