Erika Voyzey has achieved so much throughout her tenure as a Golden Eagle high jumper that it’s often hard to find something she hasn’t already accomplished.

True to form however, yesterday at Mansion Park, Voyzey leaped to the height of 5’10” and took home her 4th consecutive District 6 crown and set a new meet record.  She also added a 5th place finish in the long jump as well.

“I wasn’t that excited for the meet heading in, but once we got there, my mentality changed,” expressed an ecstatic Voyzey following her impressive day, “I was really stoked to be able to compete at the level I wanted to all season. When I scratched at 5’8″, the first two times my confidence was a little bit shaken. But I powered through it and just kept climbing up.”

She was one of five Tyrone athletes to qualify for States last evening. Fellow jumper Cullen Raftery punched his ticket with a personal best jump of 43’7″ in the triple jump and also placed 8th in the long jump.

“The wave of success can be turbulent at times, but I knew it would carry me where I needed to go” said Raftery, “I’m glad I brought my A-game because of how fierce the competition was. I can’t wait to go back to Ship!”

Parker Mitchell surprised many with an impressive 2nd place finish in the 200 meter dash at 23.36. Mitchell outperformed his pre-ranking of 6th and nearly won the event outright.

“I wanted to get at least third,” said Mitchell, who is looking forward to his second trip to states.  Mitchell went last year as the only freshman on the 4×100 relay team.

“Having been there before, I know what the atmosphere is like.  I’m hoping to make it to at the quarterfinals.  I want run more than once,” said Mitchell.

Adam Zook was a solid 800 meter runner all season and was seeded 4th heading into last evening. His new best time of 2:01.1 was enough to push him over the hump and grab 3rd place and join his teammates at Shippensburg.

“It was such a fast pace from the outset; I was worried initially that I started too fast,” said Zook, “I was in contention the whole race and I’m grateful I was able to finish strong. Being a state athlete in two sports is something I never thought I would do.”

Joe Kohler’s path to states was unique to say the least. Despite shaving 7 seconds off his best time to run a blazing 4:36 in the 1600, his performance gave him a 4th place finish, just short of state qualifying.

In an odd turn of events, the winner of the 1600 dropped out of the event to focus on the 3200 at states, allowing Kohler to advance. He was elated to say the least.

“When I found out I moved on to states,it was combination of disbelief and joy. I was happy with my effort and how I kept in contention until the finish. It’s an unbelievable feeling to see all that hard work pay off.”

Although the did not advance to States, Jake Meredith and the girls 1600 relay team of Tori Crabtree, Emily Beam, Alainna Nevling and Kristen Johnson turned in their best performances of the season. Meredith cleared 6’0″ in the high jump and relay team finished at 4:21.

As a team, the boys finished an impressive fourth in a 30 team field.

The crew of state qualifiers will set sail towards Shippensburg next Thursday and compete that weekend as they look to continue their success. Voyzey in particular will look to win an unprecedented 3rd consecutive high jump State Championship.
