2023 Bruce Dallas Track & Field Invitational: LebCo Results

On Saturday, forty-three high school track and field teams amassed at Cumberland Valley High School for the Bruce Dallas Invitational.  Of those teams, three of them were from Lebanon County: Cedar Crest, ELCO, and Palmyra.  For our local teams, this was their first invitational of the spring season where a large contingent was present.  In fact, between the three schools, there were about ninety Lebanon County student-athletes who competed.

Of the Lebanon County athletes who took part in the meet, thirty-three of them had top eight finishes, with four individuals finishing first in their events.  Two relay teams also finished first.

On the girls’ side, the athletes who won gold were a pair of Cedar Crest freshmen: Kaddel Howard in the 400m and Eliana Schneider in the javelin.  The two also joined forces with Lizzie Lowe and Grace Tadajweski to win the 4 x 800m relay.  All three marks were Cedar Crest school records.  Howard may have won a second event if she had had a chance to run the 200m, but storms struck about halfway through heats of that event, thus forcing the meet to end early.

Schneider impressively showed off her versatility even further, finishing 3rd in the high jump.  In the javelin event, it is worth noting that Schneider was one of four Lebanon County athletes to finish in the top five!  One the top five jav throwers was ELCO’s Sam Nelson (4th), sandwiched between Palmyra’s Sofie Price (3rd) and Olivia Appleby (5th).  Nelson also took silver in the discus throw.  One additional silver medal performance was in the 3200m, where Jillian Tobias put her talents on display.

Like the girls, the boys also had two individuals and a relay finish first.  Cedar Crest senior Gabe Lewis won the 100m with a 10.75, which was a time .19 faster than his time at States last year that got him into the Finals where he finished 7th.  Lewis joined Leo Tirado, Kyle Rauchet, and Nick Garman to win the 4 x 100m relay.  Rauchet later took 2nd in the 400m with a time of 51.03.  Palmyra’s Mason Bucks rounded out the top of the podium performances when he won the pole vault after clearing the bar when it reached 14’8”. Due to weather concerns, the pole vault was held off-site in an indoor location.  Worth mentioning is Bucks’ Palmyra teammate Tyler Burgess who took silver in both the 110m High Hurdles and the 300m Intermediate Hurdles.

With this being the first taste of big meets this season and so many local athletes stealing the show, it will definitely make for an exciting season of competition.
