The Christian School of York girls' track and field team won the team title at the CCAC championships in dominant fashion Wednesday at Northern High School.

Nicole Shelton blazed to a nearly 2-minute victory in the 3,200 meters, finishing in 12 minutes, 12.67 seconds. She also won the 1,600 meters by nearly 10 seconds. Shelton and teammate Laura Kruth went 1-2 in the 800.

Kruth won the 400 dash, and Madelyn Kruth won the 300-meter hurdles, going 1-2 with Noel Miller in that event.

The Kruths and Miller ran on the Crusaders' winning 1,600 relay along with Rachel Strode. And CSY added a win in the 400 relay.

The Crusaders racked up 149 team points to easily beat runner-up Harrisburg Christian (59 points).

On the boys' side, CSY finished third with 35 points, behind champion West Shore Christian (211) and Dayspring Christian (80).
