On Wednesday, May 19th Trinity Christian School’s Track and Field sent seven athletes and an alternate to the WPIAL Individual Championship at Slippery Rock University. The athletes had to earn a spot in their regular season to compete in this regional Championship–and here they competed for a spot at the state PIAA Championships, which will be held May 28 at Shippensburg University.
Senior Michael Ifidon took third place with a time of 11.40 in the 100m (1/4 of a lap around a track) to earn a spot at State Championships!
Freshman Joshua Maurer took seventh place with a time of 52.10 in the 400m (1/4 of a mile or 1 lap around the track)!
The 4X800m Relay Team was made up of freshmen Anderson Beck and Nathan Fu and sophomores Zeke Sams and Benjamin Gaunt (with junior Tommy Nelson as an alternate). The 4X800 Relay is a race where each person on a team of four runs two laps (1/2 a mile) before handing off the track baton to their next teammate who then takes off for his two laps, until the fourth runner finishes the race. Their time was 9:13.14 and they placed eleventh.
Senior Brett White in Discus threw for 126-01.00 and placed tenth.
