Two Mounts punch State tickets


ImageFreshman Gabby Gehr and junior Brynn Lyons advanced to the state level competition this past weekend in the District III Track and Field contest held at Shippensburg University.

Gehr punched her ticket Friday night with a 17 feet 8.5 inch leap in the long jump, narrowly missing a silver medal, and finishing in third place.

Lyons, not to be outdone, came into her event seeded 9th in the javelin, her throw of 119 feet 11 inches was good for 2nd place and the silver medal.

On the boys side, C.J. Wilson came the closest to qualifying for states. His season best high jump of 6 feet 2 inches, was good for 7th place, narrowly missing a state seed.

Blake Crowther also moved up 7 spots finishing 11th in the 400.

Congratulations to all Mounts competing and Good Luck to Brynn and Gabby at States!
