Krista Jones exceeded her expectations this year and avoided the Sophomore slump.
After earning her second consecutive District II Class A championship the Elk Lake Sophomore hoped to break into the top ten at states.
Jones reached her goal by finishing fourth in Hershey and for her efforts the Scranton Times named her to its All Region team and named her Performer of the Year.
She won six of her seven league races and also claimed victory at the Wyalusing Lasagna Meet and the Bob Greene Invitational in Newark Valley, NY.
“It just shows that the hard work pays off,” said Jones.
Forest City’s Korty finished second to Jones at Districts and won five Lackawanna League meets and finished second in two others. She also captured the Lackawanna County Commissioners Invitational title, placed fifth at the Cliff Robbins Invitational and was 30th at the PIAA Foundation Gold race. Korty capped her Sophomore campaign finishing 71st at the PIAA Championships.
