Ryan Riordan profiles Beaver Falls track standout Dom Peretta.

"Dominic Peretta won two gold medals and set a meet record at the WPIAL Class AA track and field championships last week.

Yet, his last performance of the meet left a bad taste in his mouth.

After winning the 800 and 1,600 events, Peretta took second in the 3,200 meters, more than four seconds behind Winchester Thurston's Landin Delaney.

"It was OK," Peretta said of his overall performance. "The 3,200 meters really messed me up. The other two events went well, but I don't even count the second-place medal.""

Track: Beaver Falls' Peretta a threat to win two titles

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Ryan Riordan profiles Beaver Falls track standout Dom Peretta.

"Beaver Falls was missing one of its 3,200-meter runners at the Beaver County Invitational April 12, so Tigers coach St. Clair Williams decided to throw Dom Peretta into the race.

It was the last race of the day for Peretta, who had already won the 800 and 1,600 meters at the event.

So Williams told him to take the first mile slow and then give whatever he had left on the second mile.

Peretta had enough to win the event in 10:16."
