State College girls’ track & field beats Cumberland Valley

Jordan Bair took the discus and the shot put, and State College took the meet 90-60 over host Cumberland Valley on Tuesday.

“Cumberland Valley is always really strong competition,” State College coach Jennifer Evans said. “And we knew it was going to be a battle. Our girls rose to the occasion.”

Bair’s throw (111-2) outdistanced the competition by more than 25 feet. Her shot put (38-4.75) mark paced the field by about six feet.

Taylor Givens captured the triple jump (35-6) and the long jump (17-7), while also finishing second to teammate Haley Crawford (12.3 seconds) in the 100-meter dash. Givens, Crawford, Zoe Wicks and Rachel Wylie teamed to take the 400 relay in 49.3 seconds. In the 100 hurdles, Wylie crossed in 14.9 seconds to place first. Wylie also captured the 300 hurdles (45.1).

Natasha Fedkina finished the 1,600-meter run in 5:10.6 to take first. Other winners included Kinsey Thompson (pole vault, 11-6) and Crawford (200-meter dash, 25.5).

State College heads to the West Central Coaches Meet on Friday in Altoona.
