Springville trio advances to USATF Jr. Olympic Regionals

BROCKPORT—A trio of Springville runners advance to the United States of America Track and Field Junior Olympic Track and Field Regional Championships following mid-June performances at the College at Brockport.

Corrin Sacilowski, Marinna Heichberger and Brooke Walker all raked up top finishes at the Niagara Competition.

Though Sacilowski competed in the 17-18 division, the future looks bright for S-GI girls track with the other two making a mark in the 13-14 division.

Heichberger set personal records in finishing first in both the shot put and the discus throw in the 13-14 division. Her shot put throw was recorded at 9.38 meters (30-feet-9.25), while her discus toss was at 22.4 meters (73-feet-6).

Walker, who also competed in the 13-14 division, finished second in the pole vault by clearing the bar at 2.75 (9-feet-0.25) behind Laura Reigle’s vault of 3.35 meters (11-feet). Like Heichberger, it was also a personal record, according to athletic.net.
