Nick Wolk didn't win a PIAA track title last weekend.
But, boy, did he come close.
Wolk, a senior at Peters Township, was narrowly defeated by North Pocono's Matt Kravitz in the PIAA Class AAA 3,200-meter final. Less than a second separated the two. Kravitz finished in 9:09.34, while Wolk finished in 9:10.25. Fellow WPIAL runners Marc Migliozzi (North Allegheny), Jake Susalla (Plum) and Todd Gunzenhauser (Mt. Lebanon) placed third, fourth and fifth, respectively.
Wolk was trying to add a PIAA gold medal to the WPIAL gold medal he earned a week earlier. Wolk ran a 9:13.68 to top the field at the WPIAL championships after placing fourth last year.
