Bishop Canevin senior Caroline DeFrank outran the 3,200-meter field at Saturday’s fourth annual Warrior Track & Field Classic Saturday that was hosted by Central Valley.
DeFrank finished with a time of 11:48.19, beating Winchester Thurston’s Madeline Schmiedeknecht by just over three seconds. Schmiedeknecht won the WPIAL Class AA championship in the 3,200 meters last season, with DeFrank finishing third.
DeFrank’s teammate, sophomore Leah Narkevic, placed fifth in the event Saturday with a time of 12:21.43.
Both Narkevic and DeFrank were also on the Crusaders’ 4 x 800 relay team that placed second to Quaker Valley. The duo was joined on the relay team by Mary Olivia Philbin and Bailey Burgess.
