Susan Concordia ’22

Mercersburg’s girls’ track and field team took first place at the Hill Relays April 9 in Pottstown, PA, while the Blue Storm boys finished third. The annual event has a different format than a typical track & field meet, with the results of each individual event being determined by the top two performances from each school.

The Storm won the girls’ high jump, pole vault, triple jump, and discus, along with the traditional 4x800m relay. On the boys’ side, Mercersburg took first in the pole vault and long jump, as well as the 4x800m and distance medley relays.
