Pittston Area senior Abby Norwillo finished second in the state Feb. 25 at the Pennsylania Track and Field Coaches Association Indoor Championships.

Norwillo cleared 13 feet in the pole vault, matching the winning height by Manheim Township’s Mackenzie Horn, but losing out on a tiebreaker.

Norwillo, who will continue her pole vaulting career at the University of Pennsylvania, was second of 16 competitors who qualified for the state meet. She was one of two local entries.

Wyoming Area’s Shelby Stackhouse placed 10th out of 14 in the high jump at 5-2. Only six jumpers went higher to Stackhouse, but she also was edged by some competitors on a tiebreaker for fewer misses.
