At the PIAA “AA” championships this past weekend, ECC sophomore Taylor Newton tied for fourth place in the high jump with her leap of 5’4″. She qualified for the state meet by clearing 5’6″ in the District 9 meet, tying a 40-year-old meet record by ECC’s Laura Lynch and earning herself a gold medal in the event.
Also earning fifth-place at the state meet was the boys’ 4x800m relay team consisting of Jacob Carnovale, Matthew Dippold, Logan Hoffman, and Ben Hoffman. Their finishing time of 8:02.26 was more than seven seconds faster than their preliminary time in the event.
Great job, everyone!
