A Wicks was on fire at the WPIAL Class AA southern qualifier last Thursday. A similar performance could lead to a big day at Thursday's championships.
Baldwin junior Jasmine Wicks posted the best throws in the shot put and discus at the qualifier, and will now shoot to do the same in the championship meet which will be held at her home track. Wicks had a top throw of 38-5 ¼ in the shot put and 117-3 in the discus. They were her best tosses of the season.
Wicks will enter the championships as the No. 1 seed in the shot put. Among her chief competition will include Uniontown's Sarah Wozniak, Hempfield's Samantha Orie and Gateway's Kristen Greggerson. Wicks is the No. 6 seed in the discus. Greta Brooks of Woodland Hills threw 123-8 at the central qualifier and is the No. 1 seed.
A few other Baldwin performers who could have lots of success at WPIALs are Alaina Stahl (100, 400), Kaden Hinish (100 hurdles), Amanda Shiflet (high jump), Gabby Loeffler (pole vault), Casey Conboy (3,200), Branden Badstinbner (discus) and Nick Lachut (pole vault).
