Yesterday marked the end of the District 6 AA championship track and field meet, and Bellwood-Antis officially has 3 athletes from the girls team heading off to states.

Along with day 1 winner Chelsea McCaulsky, Lydia Worthing (pole vault) and Alexis Lovrich (1600m) will be advancing to the PIAA track and field meet, which will be held at Shippensburg University on May 26 and 27.

Lydia placed 3rd in the pole vault with a height of 10-6, while Alexis, who originally placed 4th in the 1600, worked her way in due to two girls opting out of the competition, while also placing 5th in the 3200m.

Along with the girls advancing to states, BA had a number of athletes who placed on day 2.

Sophomore Avah Hassler (400m dash) and freshman Chloe Stoltzfus (300m hurdles) were both able to finish with top 6 finishes in their respective events.

For the boys B-A team, there were no top 3 performances to go to states, but there were some place-winners who came close to advancing.

Dylan Andrews placed 5th in the pole vault with a height of 13-0. Andrews has been dealing with a lingering ankle injury for a few weeks. With his season officially coming to an end, the SFU commit will now start preparing for competing at the college level.

Both the boys and girls 4×100 and 4×800 relay teams posted with top-8 finishes to earn ribbons.

Congratulations to a great season for all, and good luck to those advancing to states.
