Notes from Class AA Southern Qualifier
A sub.-11.0, 100-meter dash is pretty impressive for any track athlete. But if the times from the Class AA Southern Qualifier is any indication, a sub.11.0 might not be enough to qualify for the state tournament. Waynesburg's Keith Higginbotham turned in a 10.9 (hand-held) and took fourth place.
Jerome Nixon continues to produce talent at Bentworth High School. The 1,600 relay team of Colton Korpus, Chad Hubbell, Chase Hubbell and Anthony Zigerelli won the 1,600 relay with a school-record time of 3:31.8.
Chris Spicer of South Fayette put the shot 47-4 1/4 to take first place, one foot better than second-place R.J. Cook of Beaver.
Charleroi's Ethan Hank, who has posted blistering times in the sprints for Charleroi this season, did not compete in the qualifier.
Fort Cherry's 1,600 relay team of Michelina Campanella, Allison Kelley, Mia Sember and Sidney Walter crossed the finish line first in 4:10.40, nearly two seconds better than second-place South Park.
