Record-setting Saia adds to medal haul

The South-West Conference Indoor Track championships were held last Saturday at the Floyd Little Athletic Center in New Haven.

Masuk’s Theresa Saia led the girls team with two gold medals and one silver.

The meet started with the 4×200-meter relay, where Megan Tynan, Ashley Russo and Kasey Moraveck joined Saia to win the gold and set a SWC championship record time of 1 minute, 48.06 seconds.

A few events later, Theresa Saia again struck gold in the 55, with Tynan and Abbey Saia placing third and fifth, respectively. Theresa’s time of 7.28 seconds set a school and SWC record.

Moraveck set personal records in the 55 hurdles, taking home a bronze medal.

The Saia-Tynan-Saia combo went to work again in the 300, with Theresa Saia placing second, Tynan fourth and Abbey Saia sixth.

The team scoring was completed when the 4×400 relay of Raine Oesterle, TaylorAnn D’Agostino, Colleen Konkol and Dianna Antenucci won the sixth-place medals.

John Friedman’s silver medal in the 300 was the Masuk boys highest place of the evening.

However, there were numerous outstanding performances.

Jake Duckworth set school records in the 1600 and 3200, placing fifth and fourth, respectively.

The 1600 was hotly-contested, as the top three runners were .6 second apart and all broke the SWC record.

Bronze medals were earned by Anthony Piscitelli in the high jump, and the 4×200 relay of Friedman, Piscitelli, A.J. Edgeworth and Andy Fredeen. Scott Levins ran a personal record in the 55 hurdles, taking fifth place.

The 4×800 relay of Shawn Pavlik, Rishul Marwah, Chris Strachan and Owen Rully placed sixth to finish the Masuk scoring.

Both teams will compete at the Class L state championship meet on Saturday night.
