UPDATE (3:14 p.m.) -- The track events have wrapped up. Only one event left to go: the boys' Class AAA pole vault. The height is up to 14-06. Dallastown's Jared Allison is still alive.
UPDATE (2:52 p.m.) -- Sorry for the lack of updates. Lots of action going on.
Central York's Jay Stone took seventh place in the AAA 300 hurdles finals, a fine finish to his breakthrough sophomore season.
"I was ranked sixth, so I like do better that I’m ranked," Stone said. "I just didn’t come through with that. But I’m not too disappointed."
Meanwhile, Angelica Gonzalez and Megan Lundy each ran fine races in the AAA 200 final. Gonzalez earned second, while Lundy took fifth. Plenty more on those two later.
Finally, New Oxford's Courtney Wolf gave us our biggest surprise of the day. The senior, who had been seeded 17th coming into the day, took seventh in the Class AAA discus with a throw of 117-09.
"I felt more relaxed today than I did at districts," Wolf said. "I just set my mind to it. I was like, I really want to end my last year really well."
UPDATE (1:24 p.m.) -- It may not have been her best time, but Megan Lundy still sported an ear-to-ear smiling after her AAA 400 meter final.
The Central York senior grabbed seventh place in a time of 56.97 seconds, her second straight year medaling in the event. She finished sixth in 2011.
"The time wasn’t as good as it was at the district meet, but I’m very happy to medal at the state meet against such good competition," Lundy said. "I never thought I’d be in a position like this. I’m just very grateful."
Lundy still has the 200 meter final to go. She's seeded eighth heading into that race.
"I’m very happy to be in the final heat in general," she said. "I’m seeded eighth out of the eight, so hopefully maybe I can get something above that. But if not, I’m very pleased to be in the final heat."
UPDATE (12:35 p.m.) -- One down, one to go for Red Lion's Angelica Gonzalez.
The Lions freshman finished third in the AAA 100 meters a few minutes again, finishing with a time of 12.12 seconds. Gonzalez was understandably thrilled with the result -- she entered the weekend seeded fifth in the event.
"It feels so good. I’m so happy," Gonzalez said. "Usually my starts aren’t good, but that start was good."
She still has one more race to go -- the 200m final at 2 p.m. Gonzalez was seeded second in the event, and said she's hoping for either that or first place.
UPDATE (12:07 p.m.) -- We're through the morning's sprint semifinals, and the YAIAA's representatives saw mixed results.
No area athletes qualified for the 100/110 hurdles finals. Central York's Jay Stone finished ninth overall in the two semifinal heats, one place and nine hundredths of a second shy of a place in the final. Dallastown's Sally Trout (AAA), Bermudian Springs Mike Elicker (AA) and Dallastown's Johnathan Dadeboe (AAA) also failed to move on to the finals.
Then there was the good: Red Lion's Angelica Gonzalez qualified for the finals of both the AAA 100 and 200 meters. She finished second in both her 100 (12.24 seconds) and her 200 heat (24.97).
Central York's Megan Lundy also guaranteed herself two medals today by grabbed the last qualifying spot in the AAA 200 meters. She'll also run in the 400 meters this afternoon.
Also on tap this afternoon: Dallastown's Jared Allison and Kennard-Dale Dylan Moynihan will be competing in the AAA pole vault. Allison won an indoor track state title in February.
UPDATE (8:33 a.m.) -- Morning again all from sunny Shippensburg. Going to be a hot one here today. We'll see how that effects some of the athletes competing today, especially those in multiple and/or distance events.
Today is the finale of the two-day meet, with all the track finals and several field events finals on the docket. It starts at 9 a.m. with the 3,200 meter finals, which will be immediately followed by the semifinals of the sprint events. Keep it locked here and on Twitter for updates.
