NO. 5 – BROOKVILLE BOYS’ TRACK FINISHES SECOND IN THE STATE
The Brookville boys’ track and field team has been strong for the last few years and secured its third consecutive District 9 Class 2A title in 2019.
But the Raiders went even further at the PIAA level ending up finishing second in the state despite not having any points won in the throwing events, an achievement that is noteworthy in itself from a team from the rural portion of Pennsylvania.
The strength of the Brookville team was its sprinters.
Ian Thrush had a strong meet for the Raiders finished second in the 200-meter dash (21.91) and fourth in the 100-meter dash (11.13). He also helped the 4×100-meter relay team to a second-place finish (42.04) being joined on that team by Cabe Park, Jack Krug and Bryan Dworek and was a member of the seventh-place 4×400-meter team that took seventh (3:33.42) being joined on that squad by Krug, Kyle MacBeth and Dillon Olson.
Olson collected additional hardware in the hurdles finishing fourth in the 110-meter hurdles (14.89) and seventh in the 300-meter hurdles (39.86).
Dworek also captured an individual medal taking home fifth in the long jump with a leap of 21-feet, ¼ of an inch.
