SHIPPENSBURG — The PIAA Track and Field Championships got under way this morning at Seth Grove Stadium.
Corry’s 3200-meter girls relay team of Ryann Brundage, Brie Sutherland, Kessli Hall and Ida Larsen ran a time of 10:25.69 in the heat. That time was last in their heat.
Their winning time at the District 10 meet was 10:17.19.
Senior Liam Cragg competed in the Class AAA triple jump.
His best jump reportedly was 42-8.
Brundage, a sophomore, will throw the javelin on Saturday. Her 131-foot throw at districts has her tied for fifth in the seeding. The top throw is 144-8 by Connellsville’s Madison Wiltrout.
Villa Maria, which has won two of the last three Class AA girls 3200 relays, qualified for Saturday’s final. But the Victors lost time because of a dropped third hand-off between sisters Grace and Claire Brown. Claire Brown recovered enough to place in the top three of the Victors’ heat.
They’ll start sixth for Saturday’s final, with Central Cambria (9:40.21) the leader.
First-seeded Seneca and second-seeded Harbor Creek lived up to their billing in the Class AA boys 3200 relay. Each won their separate heats and qualified for Saturday’s final.
