The 400m and 1600m relay teams for Bellwood-Antis also came away with victories, with the 1600 relay team of Raegan Plowman, Sophie Damino, Riley D’Angelo and Pannasiti sealing the comeback win. Sophomore Kamryn Mercer won the high jump and junior Karson Swogger won the long jump.

On the boy’s side, senior Nathan Davis won the 100, 200, and 400 meter dashes and B-A also swept in the relays and the throwing events. Sophomore Robert Vankirk beat all others in the 3200m run. Jarrett Taneyhill took home the victory in the javelin and Lucas Tuggy helped the cause with a first place in pole vault.

Good luck to the boys and girls track & field teams Thursday against McConellsburg and West Branch.
