Hempfield girls’ track: Winners who were not Jones

Written by Cara De Carlo on .

Many recall that last week’s girls’ Class AAA WPIAL track team championships were  won by Hempfield. Reports noted that Hempfield individuals or relays won nine events, and that Jasmine Jones won the 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes.

So, what were the other girls’ events won?
Head coach Ron Colland helped out.

“Maddie Holmberg won the high hurdles,” he said. “Holmberg won the intermediate hurdles, and Holmberg won the long jump. Bridget Guy won the pole vault.”

Colland noted that Guy went 12 feet.

This total gives seven individual events won by three Hempfield athletes, and it leaves a couple of relays to make nine.

The Spartans took a couple of days off but got back to work with tough workouts on Monday and Tuesday. The team is preparing conservatively today, in order to stay fresh-but-prepped for tomorrow’s finals.
