Track: Brentwood pair “double” at Cal Track Carnival

Written by Brad Everett on .

Morgan Huffman and Pat Carr enjoyed winning titles at the Cal Track Carnival so much that they decided to do it twice.

The Brentwood standouts both won two gold medals last Saturday at California University. Huffman, a junior, won titles in the 100 and 300 hurdles. Carr, a senior, sprinted to first-place finishes in the 100 and 200.

Huffman ran the 100 hurdles in 17.44, her closest competitor being Uniontown's Cilena Francis (17.44). Huffman (50.84) also edged Francis (50.96) in the 300 hurdles. Huffman's effort also included third-place finishes in the 400 and triple jump. She finished ninth in the triple jump at last year's WPIAL Class AA championships.

Carr continued to showcase the speed he used to lead the Brentwood football team in rushing and touchdowns this past season. He raced to a mark of 11.67 in the 100, which topped runner-up Devin Carney of Uniontown (11.98). Carr (23.59) edged Brentwood teammate Dorian Bowie (24.19) in the 200. Carr finished eighth in the 200 at last year's WPIALs.

Brentwood 2015 Football Preview

Written by Joe Koch on .

With a 47-player roster to work with, Brentwood coach Kevin Kissel has reason to feel optimistic with many of his returning players having a fair amount of experience after a 6-4 season (5-2 in the Black Hills Conference).

The notable exception is at quarterback, where Ricky Gralish (6-0, 180, Jr.) succeeds Connor McWilliams. McWilliams completed 96 of 213 pass attempts a year ago for 1,502 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Gralish, conversely, completed 3 of 5 passes for 27 yards.

"It's always a concern [with a new quarterback]," Kissel said, but there are plenty of experienced players returning — both in the skill positions and on the line.
