Track: Ambridge speedster collects two PIAA medals

Written by Brad Everett on .

It was a special spring for Ambridge's Isaac Elliott.

He shined at several regular-season invitationals and was one of the stars of the WPIAL Class 3A championships when he won a pair of sprint titles.

Elliott concluded his season and high school career with even more success.

Sure, Elliott would have liked to have won a PIAA title, but he couldn't have been too upset after placing in the top three in two events. Elliott, a Duquesne recruit, was the runner-up in the 400 and finished in third place in the 100. They were the first two state medals of his career.

The WPIAL champion in the 100 and 400, Elliott actually improved both of his times at the PIAA championships. He ran a 48.49 in the 400, which was second to only Imhotep Charter's Ade Jones-Roundtree, who finished in 48.01. Elliott ran a 10.63 in the 100. Meadville's Journey Brown was first (10.43) and Downingtown East's Jeremy Jennings second (10.60).

Two other Ambridge athletes medaled at the PIAA championships. For the boys, Ethan Trehar was seventh in the javelin. For the girls, Mica Hanish was fourth in the 3,200.
