As the winter season wound down this past weekend, SCH athletes competed at a variety of venues and brought home some fabulous results.
Weekend highlights include:
Senior Henry Brandstadter had a tremendous day at the Pennsylvania Indoor State Track and Field Championships held at Penn State. Henry qualified for the High and Long Jump and was seeded 3rd and 2nd, respectively.
At the end of the day, he was a two-time State Champion, with a High Jump of 6’4” and a Long Jump measuring 23’ 5.25”, and 2 new “state champ” watches for his accomplishment. With his performance at States, Henry set a new school record, breaking the one set in 1999, with a jump at 23’ 3.5”.
