Head over to the shot put where Chambersburg's Kelton Chastulik heaves it 61 feet, 10 and half inches to not only win the event but also break his school record.

An Electronic gun to start the 3200 meter run. No one could stop J.P. McCaskey's, Nathan Henderson, setting a new district record by three seconds, finishing in 9:06.69.

For Northern York's Marlee Starliper, once she took the lead she never looked back with a dominating time of 10:31.9.
