Chambersburg's track & field team opened its season by sweeping CD East on Tuesday, with the boys winning 82-68 and the girls taking a 97-52 victory.
For the Trojan girls, there were a trio of double winners: Abby Yourkavitch (800, 1600), Kaylee Mowery (400, 3200) and Reagan Winebrenner (shot put, discus).
"Mowery's double is not one you usually see," Chambersburg coach Chris Monheim said. "Ariana Appenzellar had a good day (won the 200), and she nearly caught East in the anchor leg of the 4x100. Breya Clopper, a freshman, also did well. She won the long jump and had a second in the 300 hurdles. Sydnie Gilbert tried the triple jump today for the first time and took second."
The boys got a pair of wins from Kelton Chastulik (shot put, discus), Nate Reed (long and triple jumps), Andrew Feldman (3200, 4x800 relay) and Luke Myers (800, 4x800). The 4x400 relay took second, but the team of three sophomores and a freshman (Tyeshawn Worrell, Myers, Trayton Barnett and Quintan Barbour ran a 3:38.8.
Trojan coach Bob Walker said, "That time beat our best time from last year. Barnett had a really good day. He won the 300 hurdles and in the 110 hurdles, he was third but had a personal best 15.5. It's not often you run that time and take third - East has two really good hurdlers."
Ship vs. Greencastle is a split: The Shippensburg boys track & field team won five of the seven field events and gained enough points on the track to upend Greencastle-Antrim 78-72 on Tuesday as the teams kicked off their Mid Penn Colonial Division schedule. The Blue Devil girls rolled to a 103-42 win.
For the Greyhound boys in the field, Cody Gustafson won the long and triple jumps, and Cain Fridinger (high jump), Chase Diehl (pole vault) and Carter Van Scyoc (javelin) also had wins. The two wins in the field for G-A were by Campbell Parker, who won the shot put and discus, the latter in a school and stadium record 181 feet, 5 inches.
For the Greencastle girls, Keri Gearhart captured the javelin in style, throwing 124-5 for a school and stadium record, and took the high jump. Teammate Taryn Parks won the 1600 and 3200 and Jalene Hummer was also a double winner (110 and 300 hurdles). For Ship, Julia Nye was first in the 200 and 400.
- For Chambersburg in a 20-3 loss to Carlisle, Brandin Cosey scored twice and Thomas Elia had one goal.
