The Mifflin County Track and Field traveled to Chambersburg today for their second dual meet of the season. Although they gave it their best effort both teams fell to Chambersburg. The boys had the challenge on taking on last year’s state title team. At the beginning of the meet, Mifflin County’s boys 4×800 team of Caden Bell, Tylor Druckemiller, Reese Cubbison and Carter Smith outshined the Chambersburg team with a time of 8:24.5. Through the rest of the meet, Mifflin County fought hard to battle the well-stacked team for points. Carter Smith earned the teams’ one individual event first place finish in the 800m run with a time of 1:59.4. On the track, Myka Simmons was able to pick up two second place finishes in the 100m and 200m dashes. On the field,  Travis Renninger did the same earning two second place finishes in the discus and shot put. To round out the team individual event points, Michael McNitt – second in the 300 hurdles, Reece Bell – second in Javelin, Tylor Druckemiller – third in the 400, Aidan Scavitti – third in the 3200, Ethan Plank – third in Long Jump, and Aidan Daubert – third in Shot Put. For the final event of the meet, the Huskies were again able to dominate the relay, running the 4x400m in a time of 3:31.1, which was 6 seconds faster than their competitors. The relay members are Carter Smith, Caden Bell, Tylor Druckemiller and Myka Simmons.

For the girls, the massive Chambersburg team allowed very few points to slip by. The Mifflin County girls were only able to pick up 3 second place and 4 third place finishes. Libby Cook, Mia Coffey and Tai Ematat earned the second place honors, in the 800m, 3200m and High Jump respectively. Lyza Underhill, Adayln Ross, Gabby Powell, and Kylie Lynch scooped up the third places finishes in the 100m dash, High Jump, Pole Vault and Shot Put. 

“Although both teams struggled to earn points against Chambersburg, they continue to show strength and grit,” said MIfflin County coach Tamara Sechler. “Most of the athletes improved upon their times and measures from the meet earlier this week.”

Next Tuesday, the Huskies will take on the giants of District 6, Altoona and State College, in Altoona.
