Congrats to the Haverford track and field athletes who qualified for Shippensburg 2018. Both Cecilia Katcavage and Olivia Boyce had stellar track seasons, performing on a very high level consistently through the season and qualifying for states. Olivia’s high jump PR of 5-4 puts her very close to the school record. Well done ladies!
Aiden Tomov had an exceptional year in the 1600 meters; he was 3rd in the county, 6th in the district, and 11th in the state final. Aiden’s PR of 4:20.9 — run in the heats at the PIAA state meet — places him high on the Haverford all-time list. At the district and state meets Aiden was ‘doubling’ back from running a leg on the 4×800 relay.
Speaking of which, the 4×800 relay of Aiden, Josh Fingerhut, Brendan Campbell, and Erik McCallion also had a great year, placing 5th at districts, qualifying for the state finals with a time of 7:59, and placing 11th in the state final. Brendan’s 1:57 leg in the heats at states was one highlight of many – his was also a remarkable season.
The future looks very bright for Haverford Track and Field. Go Fords.
Also, please remember to turn in uniforms and banquet information/payment. Thank you!
