Bulldogs sweep Rockets

MEADVILLE — The Titusville track & field team came up short in both ends of a non-region meet against Meadville on Tuesday.

Meadville won a fairly close battle in the boys meet, 85-63. The Bulldog girls made it a sweep with a 114-36 win over the Lady Rockets.

On the boys side, Frank Barger led Titusville with three individual victories. He had the top time in the 110 hurdles (16.70), the 300 hurdles (47.15) and had the top distance in the long jump (a personal best 18-9).

Barger’s time in the 110 hurdles earned him a spot in the District 10 meet. Standards were released on Monday. He’ll join Kaleb Sopher (100, 200), Lodge Nosko (shot put) and Hunter Titus (400) who all retroactively qualified with their performances against Corry two weeks ago.

Yet, all three of those guys picked up wins against Meadville yesterday. Nosko had personal bests in all three throwing events while winning both the shot put (44 feet, 10 inches) and the javelin (122-1).

Sopher added victories in the 100-meter dash (11.65) and 200-meter dash (23.60).

Titus won the 400 yesterday (54.61).

Also, Mitchell Baldwin added his name to the list of district qualifiers after he won yesterday’s pole vault event with a personal-best height of 11 feet.  

For the girls, Titusville had two individual victors.

SheaLynn Titus was fastest in the 800 in a time of 2:35.56. (Isabelle Ongley was third in the event a personal-best 2:47.88).

Titus also added a second-place finish in the 1,600, finishing in 5:53.09, which was good enough to earn her a spot in the D-10 championship meet.
