North Penn boys and Coatesville girls picked up the AAA team titles and Gwynedd Mercy Academey and Octorara boys picked up the AA teams titles.
Pennsylvania\'s track and field stars moved on to the big dance, with some just worried about getting there in one piece, while others went for their PRs. Here are a few of the highlights. Apologies if we missed any of the top US performances in this early report (photo of Craig Miller in 1600 by Aaron Rich).

Hermitage hurdler star Queen Harrison suffered an unfortunate season ending injury at last night\'s Colonial District Meet. On the Wednesday portion of the Colonial District Meet at Douglas Freeman High School, Harrison was competing in the trials of the 300 meter hurdles. Out in the lead in her heat, Harrison hit the sixth hurdle and fell to the ground. She was able to get up and chase down the runners that passed her in the fall and win the heat in dramatic fashion. However, it was later learned that she suffered a broken collar bone and that it would take four to six weeks to heal. Harrison was just coming off a great performance at last Friday\'s Southern Track Classic where she posted the state\'s fastest time in a personal best time of 43.17 for the 300 meter low hurdles event and seemed to poise to win the state crown this June. Hopefully, Harrison will have a speedy recovery and begin preparation for a stellar senior season next year.
if Districts is the appetizer for the main course of States, then Memorial Day weekend will be a fan-feast. (PennTrackXC.com file photo)
A newcomer wins the three jumps, while a name you know just keeps notching some great marks... in four events.
Coming off her US #1 3200 performance on Wednesday with a winning time of 10:16.03, Fauquier senior Sarah Bowman continued to amaze at the Northwestern District Meet as she tuned in some fine performances the next day in the 1600 and 800 meter races. In the 1600 meter run, Bowman ran a three second personal best in the event to clock a time of 4:41.17. Bowman just missed reclaiming her US #1 spot in the event as the current leader, Brie Felnagle from the state of Washington, ran a hand held time of 4:40.9 (converts to 4:41.14 FAT) at a tri-meet last weekend. Bowman then came back with less than one and a half hours rest to win the 800 meter run in a solid time of 2:08.62.
Many were speculating what Fauquier middle distance star Sarah Bowman could run for 3200 meters. The last time Bowman had ran a 3200 meter race was in a few dual meets her freshmen year. Well the University of Tennessee bound star showed what she could do in the eight lap event at the Northwestern District Meet on Wednesday night by posting the nation\'s fastest time with a 10:16.03 clocking. Bowman will be coming back today for the Thursday portion of the meet to run in the 1600 and 800 meter races. Bowman currently has the nation\'s fastest time in the 800 meter run (2:05.41) and formerly had the nation\'s fastest time at 1600 meters (4:44.09) until Brie Felnagle of Washington recently ran a 4:40.9 clocking.

It was athlete-vs-athlete, whether AA or AAA, and in the end, the performances showed talent at all levels. Cedar Cliff continued to show its depth with both teams... while individually, it was the sophomore class that made sure their older teammates knew they were a force to be reckoned with - taking six individual girls\' championships.
Another Georgia track season has come to a close and the boys state meet provided a fitting ending for a fantastic season.

There is something magical in the air at every Southern Track Classic when night falls and the lights are on. The tensity and nerves conveyed by the athletes combined with the awe and excitement shown in the faces of the fans, parents, and coaches is something truly unique to this meet. A meet of this caliber was lacking last spring when the Classic took a year of absence and the impact of this loss was greatly felt. However, Virginia\'s finest in high school track and field competition has returned !
