Crucible of championships

Sullivan West eighth-grader Stephanie Schwab won the triple jump (29-8) in the meet vs. Tri-Valley. She took second in the high jump, 100 hurdles and long jump as she collected 14 points for the Lady Westies who came up just six points shy of a Division IV title upset.

SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY — This is Championship Week One in the glorious realm of Section IX high school track and field. In the span of a single week, heated OCIAA division rivalries resulted in titles, the Sullivan County championships (aka, the Donna Deppa Meet of Champions) unfolded at Sullivan West, the electrifying OCIAA Throwing Pentathlon and Hammer Championships were staged at Monroe-Woodbury and the vaunted two-day OCIAA League Championships will be played out at the gorgeous Warwick track and field venue. As runners, jumpers and throwers look to marshal their best for these meets and the looming Section IX Championships that lie just ahead, many records are shattered and personal bests are often achieved.
