Coleman won the 300-meter hurdles (39.34) and the triple jump (45-feet, 5 inches) and took second in the long jump (21-11) and fourth in the 110-meter hurdles (15.32) while qualifying for the PIAA meet in the 110. His triple jump set the meet record topping the previous mark of 44-11 set by Smethport’s Matt Bango in 2004.

Coleman talked after his 300 hurdles victory.

Lewis, meanwhile, won a pair of events taking home the pole vault (11-6) and the triple jump (34-1) while finishing second in the high jump (5-0). She beat Moniteau’s Kendall Grossman in the pole vault by needing fewer tries to clear the 11-6 height with both athletes setting the meet record at 11-6. Grossman held the previous meet mark of 11-4 set last season.

Lewis talked about her triple jump victory.
