Lynn leads Bulldogs over visiting Beavers

MEADVILLE — “It’s a good thing we have that little break for Easter,” said Meadville track and field coach Carl Roznowski. “That should give her a chance to rest up those muscles.”

Roznowski is talking about Bulldogs junior Jordan Lynn, who was a busy lady on Wednesday as the MASH boys and girls squads took on Corry in a Region 3 meet at the Barco-Duratz Athletic Complex.

Lynn competed in four events, and won four events, as the Bulldog girls defeated the visiting Beavers 98-52.

She started the day with a win in the 100-meter hurdles, winning it in 16:46.

Then she turned right around and ran the 100-meter dash.

“My coaches wanted me to work on my speed, so they wanted me to run the 100 right after the 100 hurdles,” said Lynn.

She’d never competed in the event before.

“I didn’t know what to expect since I’d never really timed myself,” she said.

She ended up winning the event in 13.44. Not bad for a first try.

“I guess, yeah,” she said.

Lynn went on to add first-place finishes in the 300 hurdles (50.56) and the triple jump (33 feet, 8 inches).

“She had a fine day,” said Roznowski. “She’s starting to come into her own, which is really great. And we’re looking for her to get better times yet.”

It was a pretty successful day overall for the girls’ team. The Lady Bulldogs swept the relays, with Paige Yoder, Libby Volna, Lucy Volna and Abbey Peters claiming the 3,200 (10:41); Yoder, Peters, Libby Volna and Paige Whitney winning the 1,600 (4:28); and Shania McMaster, Kellie Vincent, Kendell Dickson and Amber Griffith finishing first in the 400 (56.50)

In the individual events, Whitney had the top time in the 400 in 1:04. Peters triumphed in the 800 in 2:35. Griffith was fastest in the 200 dash in 29.58. And Meredith Prather was the first to the finish line in the 3,200 with a time of 12:45.

“Mimi Prather, she’s a young freshman, she’s doing a really great job,” said Roznowski. “We’re looking forward to having her on the team for a number of years more.”

In the field events, Dickson picked up a win in the long jump with a flight of 15 feet. Emily Allen had the top toss in the discus at 97-4. Fiona Mosley won the shot put with a distance of 28-91/2. And Abby Weagraff cleared 8 feet to win the pole vault.

“She’s going for the school record,” Roznowski said about the junior Weagraff. “She jumped 8 feet at Harbor Creek and just missed 8-6. That would tie it. There’s a chance she could break it this year.”

Poll

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
