Flud Repeats as PAC Javelin Champion
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            Tommy Flud continued his dominance of the Pioneer Athletic Conference in the javelin. Last week, the Upper Perkiomen senior won his second straight conference title.

            Flud earned a gold medal with a throw of 186 feet, 7 inches during the conference championship meet on Thursday, May 11 and posted the team's only title during the three-day meet at Norristown High School.

            Flud dominated the field, defeating the runner-up by more than 14 feet. Douglas Ledger finished second with a throw of 172 feet, 1 inch.

            Samantha Pedrick earned a silver medal in the pole vault. Armani-Avant Brown (high jump) Vincent Durrant (400 meter dash) and Theodore Deskevich (pole vault) each added a bronze medal.

            No new athletes qualified for this weekend's District One Class 3A championships. Flud and Morgan O'Hara (Javelin), Pedrick, Durrant, Grayson Riggins (110 meter hurdles) have already secured a spot in the meet at Coatesville High School.

            Durrant has qualified in the 200 and 400 meter dash. He and Riggins improved their seeding in the 400 and the 110 hurdles race, respectively.

            Pedrick, a sophomore, cleared 10 feet in the pole vault on the first day of the meet. O'Hara finished sixth (9 feet). Deskevich, a junior, vaulted 12 feet to earn a bronze medal.

            Durrant earned a pair of medals during the third day of the meet. He finished third in the 400 meter dash (49.78 seconds). The senior added a sixth-place showing in the 200 meter dash (22.87).

            Riggins reached the medal stand in his best event on Saturday with a personal best time. He finished fifth in the 110 meter hurdles (15.29 seconds) to remain the fastest ninth grader in the state in the event.

            Chidike Eruba ended up in sixth place in the javelin on Thursday with a throw of 149 feet, 5 inches. Owen Pratt finished 10th (144 feet, 3 inches).

            Abigail Rowland finished seventh in the 3,200 meter run. The ninth grader posted a time of 12:29.83.

            Three Indians registered eighth-place finishes. Sallybeth McClaskey, a ninth grader, ran the 300 meter hurdles in 50.32 seconds. Senior Abigail Rodenberger threw the discus 91 feet, 6 inches). Asher Zonis reached 39 feet, 10 1/2 in the triple jump.

            The following day, senior Joshua Hill finished eighth in the shot put with a throw of 43 feet, 8 inches). Junior Eric Romanowski (43 feet, 7 1/2 inches) and senior Gabriel Carducci (42 feet, 11 inches) ended up in ninth and 10th place, respectively.

            Rowland added a 10th place finish in the 1,600 meter run. She finished the race on the final day of the meet with a time of 5 minutes, 39 seconds.

            O'Hara posted a similar finish in the javelin on Saturday. She registered a throw of 93 feet, 6 inches.
