Elizabeth Forward senior Matt Bernadowski capped an incredible year with a second-place finish at the PIAA meet in the 100 hurdles.
Bernadowski, also a standout in football and basketball, lost to Gateway's Montae Nicholson, who he beat in the WPIAL final a week earlier. Bernadowski beat Nicholson's WPIAL meet record in his win.
Bernadowski was one of four South runners to win gold at the WPIAL Class AAA boys meet. Baldwin's Luke Smorey won the district javelin for the second straight year; Mt. Lebanon's Troy Apke took first in the 100 meters; and Upper St. Clair's James Smith won the 800 meters.
Smorey ended up finishing second at the PIAA meet, while Apke tied for fourth.
