On Monday, April 15, while the rest of the world was worried about a tax deadline, the SHS girls’ track team monopolized the scoreboard beating Dieruff 126 to 24.

Alena Murray, 11, took first place in the 100 and the 200-meter Dash, while Nya Cawley, 10, grabbed first place in the 400-meter Dash.

The girls annihilated the competition in the distance events including the 800-meter Run, 1600-meter run, and the 3200-meter Run.

  • 800-meter run: Julia Grant, 10, took first place; Clodagh Conboy, 12, took second place; Karen Helm, 10, took third place.
  • 1600-meter run: Amelia Nieman, 11, took first place; Janel Meyers, 11, took second place; Jessica Klein, 11, took third place.
  • 3200-meter run: Carolyn Roberti, 11, took first place; Kiara Hidalgo, 12, took second place; Sophia Lin, 10, took third place.

In the 100-meter Hurdles, Lindsey Pelaez, 12; Zoe-Marie Brown, 12; and Emily Bozena, 11, snagged the top three spots. Then in the 300-meter hurdles, Ava O’Connor, 12; Emily Bozena, 11; and Olivia Full, 10, did it all over again.

The SHS “A” running team placed first in the 4 x 100-meter relay and the 4 x 800-meter relay, and also took second place in the 4 x 400-meter relay.

The field events were just as impressive. The girls destroyed Dieruff in the Pole Vault event while Stroudsburg took the top five spots on the leaderboard: Sydney Moritz, 11; Emma Bialasiewicz, 12; Tilda Sathapornwongkul, 12; Katelyn Pantinople, 11; and Riley Tepper, 12.

SHS controlled first, second, and third places in Discus, Long jump, and Javelin.

  • Discus event: McKayla Strunk, 11; Ella Henritzy, 12; and Adiana Borzio, 10. Henritzy also took first place in the shot put.
  • Long Jump event: Lindsey Pelaez, 12; Athena Skarlis, 10; and Cailin Mignosi, 10.  Pelaez also took first place in the Triple Jump.
  • Javelin event: Chelsea Connell, 11; Kamrin Hock, 11; Kelsey Johnson, 12.
