Indoor Track Racing, Jumping to Success
Penn Charter's indoor track teams headed to Ursinus College on Wednesday to compete in an invitational event sponsored by Hill School. Nine individuals earned top-three finishes, as did two relays.
For the boys, winners were senior Chris Tucker in the 55-meter dash (6.63 seconds) and Akeem Blake in the high jump (6 feet). Soph Patrick Gabor took second behind Blake while thirds were notched by seniors Pat McLaughlin in the 55 hurdles (8.64) and Joshua Patton in the mile (5:00.48).
For the girls, senior Marilyn Pease won the high jump at 4-10. Placing second were senior Felicia Robinson in the long jump (14-1) and junior Jernee Watson in the pole vault (6-6). Senior Tina Kingsberry was third in that event, also with a 6-6 effort.
On each side, the 4x800 relays placed second.
