WEST MIFFLIN — Led by one medal winner, nine members of the Punxsy girls' track and field team competed in snowy and cold conditions at the Tri-State Track Coaches Association Outdoor Championship Meet Saturday at West Mifflin High School.

Sophomore Alexis Young earned a seventh-place medal in the 1,600-meter run, as she finished with a time of 5:45.1.

"Alex ran very well considering the weather conditions," Punxsy first-year head coach Barry Young said. "She ran well during the indoor season and has carried that into the outdoor season."

The following are the Lady Chucks' other results:

• Discus — Santana Smith, 82-8; Cenneca Dilts, 63-6.

• Long jump — Shannon Carpenter, 13-5 1/2; Kirsten Dean, 13-10 1/2.

• Triple jump — Carpenter, 29-1 1/2.

• 100-meter dash — Karah Hollis, 14.19; Amber Metts, 15.55.

• 1,600-meter run — Juliann Boddorf, 6:02.7.

• 400-meter dash — Boddorf, 68.85; Young, 72.98.

• 100-meter hurdles — Emily Smith, 21.79.

• Shot put — Santana Smith, 28-1 3/4; Dilts, 25-7 1/2.

"The other girls performed well but were not able to medal," Young said. "This is a huge meet involving more than 50 teams.

Next up for the Lady Chucks is a dual meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday in Brookville. They will then head to Brookville again for its annual invite Saturday.
