Every once in awhile, something so special happens within another event that it gets its own recognition outside of the original event.

That is the case with the Brookville 4×100-meter boys’ relay team.

Just a couple of days ago, Brookville finishing second at the PIAA Class 2A track and field championship was featured, and in that story, the 4×100-meter relay team was mentioned.

But a mere mention doesn’t do justice to this group of four runners – Jack Krug, Cabe Park, Bryan Dworek and Ian Thrush.

Going into the season, the foursome knew it had a special group, and it didn’t take long to show what kind of a group it was setting the school and track record during the Brookville Invite in mid-April in a blistering time of 42.18, which was good enough to be the fastest time in Pennsylvania heading into the District 9 meet.

But that wasn’t good enough for this group.

They set the District 9 record while blowing away the competition at the D9 meet winning in a time of 42.02, over two seconds faster than second-place Elk County Catholic and over a half-second faster than the mark set by Clarion in 2001 (42.62).

At the PIAA meet, Brookville entered the finals with the top semifinal time of 42.54 and then nearly equaled its D9 record by running 42.04 in the finals. The Raiders had to settle for second place when Motivation out of Philadelphia ran a sub-42 winning the race in 41.98. But Brookville beat out Aliquippa, which took third in a time of 42.91.

The records set by Brookville in 2019 may not be touched in District 9 or at the school for a very long time.
