Amber Davies & Brynn Lyons set Meet Record


ImageThe Mounts tuned up for the League meet this past weekend participating in the Blue Streak Relays. The girls finished 8th overall, while the boys finished 11th overall.

But it was Brynn Lyons and Amber Davies that stood out as they set a meet record in the Long jump with a combined total of 31 feet 11.5 inches. For the girls, Ephrata also claimed to third place finishes in the 4 x 1600 relay and in the 4 x 800 relay. The Mounts finished 4th in the Shuttle Hurdle Relay and capped off the scoring with a 6th place finish in the High Jump.

The boys placed second in the 4 x 100 with a time of 44.2, a third place finish in the shot put with a distance of 92 feet .5 inches. They also finished fifth in the Sprint Medley Relay, and 6th in the Triple Jump.

Junior High Track News: On Friday, May 4, 2006, the Ephrata Mounts Junior High Track and Field team came up short to a tough Hempfield team. The highlight of the night was the amount of records that were broken!

It started when 8th grader Allison Hunt broke team mate Gabby Gehr's record of 13.3.  Allison shaved a tenth of a second off the previous record, lowering it to 13.2 and picked up a first place finish along the way.

Two events after, Mickey Molchany ran victorious in the mile breaking Givi Palagashvilli's 2004 record of 5:10 with a second place finish, and a new record of 5:09.  Keeping up with this "fast track" the girls 4x100 relay of Jenna Miller, Megan Bramble, Hunt, and Gehr ran to a new school record of 55.9. 

The last two records that were broken were both in the 800 meter run.  First, coming in first place, 7th grader, Kathleen Andriani ran her heart out lowering Brynn Lyons' record of a 2:38 down to 2:36.  Right after that Daniel Witwer ran a 3rd place finish with a time of a 2:21.
