"For the second consecutive season Mt. Lebanon track and field coach Ken Wentzel has watched an athlete transform herself from a beginner at hurdling to a WPIAL champion.
Last season it was Anna Simone adding the 100 hurdles to her events as a senior and winning a WPIAL championship as a first-year hurdler.
This year it was high jumper Beatrice Goodyear, a junior, making the transition to WPIAL champion hurdler.
Goodyear raced the 100 hurdles in a personal best 14.62 to win the WPIAL Class AAA championship, outpacing Hempfield Area freshman Maddie Holmberg, who had a time of 14.96.
"The time she ran was spectacularly fast," Wentzel said. "It was by far her personal best, faster than expected.""
