No. 20: Three District 9 girls’ place in the javelin at the PIAA Championships

Having one place winner from District 9 in an event at the PIAA Track and Field championships in any given year is an accomplishment. To have three is something to celebrate.

That’s what happened in the Class 2A javelin this year when Johnsonburg’s Skylar Sherry, Moniteau’s Cambrie Campbell and Kane’s Trinity Clark all earned medals in the event at Shippensburg University.

Sherry finished second in the state with a throw of 144-feet only being beaten by Mount Carmel’s Maura Fiamoncini, who threw 144-8 on the last throw of the meet.

Campbell was just behind Sherry taking third with a toss of 140-feet, 8-inches, while Clark was seventh throwing the javelin 130-feet, 6-inches.

Remarkably, District 9 nearly had four of the eight medal winners, as North Clarion’s Tori Obenrader missed earning a medal by an inch. She finished 10th with a toss of 126-feet, 1-inch, while the eighth-place finisher threw 126-feet, 2-inches.
