SHIPPENSBURG - Greenwood saw three state qualifications in the second day of the District 3 Class AA track and field championships.
One of them was, in a sense, a repeat - junior Emily Fisher, who was the Wildcats' only qualifier on the opening day of the meet by winning the discus, advanced in the shot put with a second-place finish Saturday.
The top two and other placewinners who meet the state qualifying standard return to Shippensburg this weekend for the PIAA championships.
Fisher's effort in the shot was a state-qualifying throw, although she advanced on place. More important, it was a huge gain over her seeded entry. She went 36 feet, 9 inches in the district, which was more than a foot and a half above her previous best.
Jen Campbell also made it to states in the high jump. She tied for second with a 4-foot, 10-inch leap.
"That was a bit if a surprise obviously," Greenwood coach Tom Magill said. "She was clean through 4-10 and that was enough."
The boys will be represented in one event, and the only one where Greenwood will have a track entry. The 4x100-meter relay squad finished fourth, but below the state time with a run of 3:28.58.
"I thought the boys had a shot in the relay and they made it," Magill said. "I thought Emily had a shot in both of them."
The Wildcats collected 17 medals and saw two school records fall in the meet. The girls 4x400 relay team broke the record it set at the Tri-Valley League meet by three seconds, but was still two ticks shy of qualification. And Scott Kerstetter ran a school-record 51.05 in the 400.
