The girls had several excellent performances at the Delco Relays on Saturday, including a first-place, district-qualifying shot put of 36-2 by Cecilia Catcavage, a 2:34 800-meter leg by Maura Timoney, and a tough 5:45 1600-meter leg by Lindsey Scheivert. Great job ladies!
Meanwhile, out in Coatesville…
The distance medley relay of Brendan Campbell, Jared Ziegler, Erik McCallion, and Aiden Tomov ran the PA state #1 time of the year, 10:46.81, to win.
The 4 x 800 relay of Tomov, Campbell, McCallion, and Josh Fingerhut came back to win and run the PA #3 time of the year, 8:07.09, qualifying for districts and Penn Relays.
Michael Donnelly ran the PA #12 time of the year (9:46) to place second in the 3200 meters and qualify for districts.
