Wyoming Area sweeps WVC D-2 championships in track and field

Wyoming Area remained on top of Wyoming Valley Conference Division 2 boys track and field.

This time, the girls team joined the boys.

Wyoming Area swept Lake-Lehman Tuesday to complete unbeaten seasons and clinch boys and girls championships in the division.

The girls meet matched the last two unbeatens in the division. In the boys meets, Lake-Lehman was one of a pair of one-loss teams that began the day with a chance of still sharing the title.

Wyoming Area left no doubt with two decisive victories at home at Anthony “Jake” Sobeski Stadium.

The boys secured their repeat with a 105-45 romp and the girls won 92-58.

Wyoming Area is ranked second among Small School boys teams in the Riverfront Sports Super Six Power Rankings of District 2 teams and entered the day third in Small School girls, one spot behind Lake-Lehman.

The Lady Warriors did not need long to establish that they were ready for the challenge.

Ella McKernan, Samara Campenni, Nina Angeli and Madelyn Keating set a school record while fighting off a strong Lake-Lehman challenge and winning the first event, taking the 3200-meter relay in 9:59.

The win was the first of four for McKernan, a freshman, who took the 400 and 800 and ran a leg in the 1600 relay win.

Rosalind Tart won three individual events, the shot put, long jump and triple jump.

Keating and Adreanna Cunningham each won two individual events and one relay. Keating won the 1600 and 3200. Cunningham won the 100 and 200 dashes and anchored the 400 relay team.

Amanda McGurk won the pole vault and discus for Lake-Lehman.

Rocco Pizano won the long jump and 200 dash, along with contributing a leg to the 400 relay victory while leading the Wyoming Area boys.

Drew Mruk, fresh off a third-place finish in the javelin at the Penn Relays, won that event and the shot put.

Niko Sciandra won the 300 hurdles and was on the 400 and 1600 relay teams.

Usamah Alansari, in the 110 high hurdles, and Aaron Crossley, in the 100 dash, each joined Pizano and Sciandra on the 400 relay team.

Lake-Lehman’s Nick Hockenbury won the 1600 and 3200 along with being part of a 3200 relay win.
