Bishop McDevitt High School Scores
Bishop McDevitt must be pretty happy at the moment. He’s not exactly had all that much of which to be proud vis-à-vis competitive sports in the last couple of decades. Indeed, when the girls’ track team from his Harrisburg high school came in first in the District III AA Team Championship, it marked the very “first district championship in the history of the program,” as well as McDevitt’s own “first women’s district championship since 1985.” That has to be a victory for both McDevitt and the Harrisburg girls.
Maybe you even know one or two of the successful Harrisburg winners. “Earning gold medals for the team were Yaneshia Gaston (200, 400), Amber McCoy (300 hurdles), Kameko Webb (long jump) and the 4×1 Relay team of Gaston, McCoy, Webb, and Ieisha Jackson. Another gold was won with the 4×400 Relay team of Gaston, Jackson, Brianna Davis and Cheyenne Johnson. Other medals earned: Adrianna Vukmanic (2nd in javelin), Davis (2nd in discus), McCoy (2nd in 100 Hurdles and 2nd in high jump), Rachel Gerber (3rd in discus), Webb (3rd in 100m, 6th in triple jump), Anne Mrazik (4th in discus), Jessica Miller (5th in 1600 and 6th in 3200), and Jackson (7th in long jump).
Clearly this was a great team and of course kudos has to go to the coaches as well. Let’s hear it for Harrisburg and McDevitt and hope that this just marks the beginning of a good run for the school.
