Mercersburg's Burg medals in 4 races
Saturday, at Lawrenceville, N.J.
Mid-Atlantic Prep championships
Mercersburg senior Brittany Burg was on fire Saturday at the Mid-Atlantic Prep League indoor championships, winning 2 races and placing second and third in 2 others "Brittany ran four races - two prelims and two finals - in a very short period of time," Blue Storm coach David Grady said, referring to her third in the 55 hurdles (9.55) and runner-up effort in the 55 dash (7.63) Her time in the prelims (7.56) would have been good enough to win Later, Burg came back to win the 400 in 1:01.66, her best time ever indoors, and then won the 200 in 27.50, also a best time Grady said, "With a little more rest, she might have done better in the first two races. She went out hard in both the 400 and 200. She got caught in the 200 and passed, but she won at the finish line. The 400-200 is tough because of the short recovery time in between, so for her to have two best times is quite a feat." Also for the Mercersburg girls, Lola Tijani set a school record in the triple jump (31-11) to place second, and was fifth in the high jump (4-8) Alexandra Treml was fourth in the pole vault For the boys, Austin Hess matched his best pole vault of the season, 10-6, to place second Timi Tijani was fourth in the high jump (5-8) and fifth in the long jump (18-6) Keene Sanders took fifth in the shot put (42-8.5).
