Grove City’s Dan Jaskowak and Corry’s Austin Pondel — two of the premier runners in the state — faced off in the Class AA-AAA boys race. Jaskowak wins the Class AA title and Pondel claims the Class AAA title. Jaskowak edges Pondel by a couple of seconds at the finish, although they technically were not racing each other. It’s the first D-10 title for Pondel, who has had an outstanding career and a sensational senior season.
Olivia Mamula of Cambridge Springs wins the Class A race in a sprint to the finish against a West Middlesex runner. (We’re not sure which one yet.)
Tom Reisenweber reports that Villa Maria freshman Bernadette Prichard wins the District 10 Class AA title and wins the combined Class AA-AAA race. Meanwhile, McDowell senior Melissa Perseo wins the Class AAA title. Times and the team results have not been made official.
The course is drenched and will quickly turn into a muddy mess. It’s been raining steadily in Sharon, although it’s not a downpour.
Also, there were some questions about DuBois’ participation in the D-10 meet today. Tom Reisenweber reports that DuBois runners will compete but are not eligible for District 10 titles. They are, however, eligible to qualify for state through today’s meet.
