Keith Barnes profiles the Beaver boys and girls track teams.
"Beaver Area track coach Jason Gallagher was as surprised as anyone when his team lifted him up on their shoulders and carried him around the field at Baldwin High School.
"I'm a big guy, no offense," Gallagher said. "But I'm impressed. They got me with a cooler, too, and it's something to be proud of."
His teams' reason for the shower and the ride were simple. Beaver Area had just become only the third school in WPIAL history to win both the boys and girls Class AA team track championships in the same year and the first since Wilmington in 1992.
"It's all about the kids," Gallagher said. "Every year I keep telling these kids who come out that we'll get them where they need to go and we get them stronger, we get them better, and if they're struggling we get them a new event to try.""
