Player of the day
Reagan Hess, Annville-Cleona girls track
A hamstring injury suffered at the Lancaster-Lebanon League Championships ended Reagan Hess's hopes of a postseason championship haul last season.
This just in: She's back.
Hess proved that on Monday, picking up wins in the 100 meter dash and long jump while helping the Annville-Cleona girls track and field team to a 110-40 victory over Northern Lebanon.
Hess, a junior, blazed to victory in the 100 in 12.91 seconds and soared a mammoth 18-1/2 in the long jump, efforts that seem to indicate she's back or close to the form she showed during a dominating freshman campaign and during the regular season last year.
