Witmer earns State’s top seed in 300 hurdles
For the second-straight year, Ephrata’s Mary Witmer has earned the top seed in the 300 hurdles for the upcoming State Track Meet to be held at Shippensburg University Friday and Saturday.
Witmer earned top billing thanks to her record-breaking performance this past week at the District Three Championships. The Ephrata senior set the new record on her way to capturing the District gold with a blistering time of 42.11.
A year ago at States, Witmer posted a time of 43.95 to finish second in the State, behind only Dannah Hayward of Coughlin, who won the gold with a time of 43.37.
This year, the top two times behind were posted by Cheltenham’s Kayla Coley (43.44) and Cumberland Valley’s Rachael DeCecco (43.89).
In addition to Witmer, the following is a list of the rest of the Ephrata and Cocalico athletes who will compete at States, along with their events, seedings as well as times and distances:
