Dejalynn Peterson had a busy — and successful — time at the Big South Invitational last Wednesday.
The Chartiers Valley senior won the 200 and 400 meters and placed second in the 100 at the event, which included Thomas Jefferson, Elizabeth Forward, Belle Vernon, McGuffey, Trinity, Ringgold and host West Mifflin.
Peterson won the 200 in a time of 26.53, squeaking by Thomas Jefferson’s Missy Wagner, who ran a 26.66. Peterson had an easier time in the 400, as her time of 59.21 was more than three seconds faster than West Mifflin’s Aerial Dukes. Wagner finished third.
In the 100, Peterson ran a 13.18, which was 0.26 seconds behind Olivia Airhart of Thomas Jefferson.
