Tanner Myers

Chambersburg 77, Carlisle 73: The Mid Penn Commonwealth meet came down to the final event — the 4 x 400 relay — and the Trojans defeated the Thundering Herd by just a second to win the meet at Trojan Stadium.

The team of CJ Miotia, Edis Korkutovic, Zack Yourkavitch and Tanner Myers ran the relay race in 3:33.8 to Carlisle’s 3:34.9 to produce five points and erase the Herd’s 73-72 lead.

“I am extremely proud of how the entire team battled until the very end,” Chambersburg coach Bob Walker said. “It was fun to watch the guys compete and give it everything they had to secure a big win against Carlisle.”

Myers had a big meet, also winning the 200 in 23.5 and helping the 4 x 100 team of Darion Baumgartner, Michael Kelly and Rhiageon Parker to a win in 43.9. Kelly also came up huge with two other victories — in the 110 hurdles in 15.3 and in the long jump in 20-6.5.

The Trojans (3-0, 3-0 MPC) outscored Carlisle 37-26 in the field. Winners included James Lilley in the discus (130-4), Daniel Pisle in the pole vault (10-6) and Sedrick Vessah in the shot put (46-4.5)

The other winner on the track was Korkutovich in the 300 hurdles with a time of 41.6.

Cayce Elbin

Chambersburg 80, Carlisle 70: Just like the boys, the girls’ meet came down to the last event of the day and again, the Trojans won the 4 x 400 relay to capture the Mid Penn Commonwealth win at Trojan Stadium.

The team of Camryn Kiser, Ellie Fatyol, Natalia Holmes and Caitlin Elbin held the lead from the get-go and turned in a time of 4:11.6 to win by about 3 seconds.

“We were up 75-70, but if they had won and tied it up, Carlisle had the tiebreaker,” Chambersburg coach Chris Monheim said. “We got big points from so many kids. It was definitely an example of a total team meet. Where we placed the kids in the events seemed to work out — it was like a chess match.”

Kate Etter and Holmes each picked up a pair of individual wins. Etter produced personal bests in the long jump (17-7) and the triple jump (37-6.5), while Holmes was victorious in the 100 (12.3) and the 200 (26.1). Holmes also anchored the 4 x 100 team of Elbin, Jessy Santana and Fatyol that won in 50.4.

Also picking up wins were Kaleah Leisher in the discus (105-3), Ashley Gunkleman in the javelin (102-7) and Cayce Elbin in the pole vault (8-6).
