NEW CASTLE —
Drake qualified for the PIAA Class AA championship meet at Shippensburg University last spring and is hoping to earn a return trip this year.
“Lord willing, I’m expecting to qualify for the triple jump,” said Drake, who earned a trip in the triple jump and 3200 relay as a sophomore. “My goal is to qualify for the long. Our relays are doing really well. It would be amazing if I could qualify in four events. We’ll see what the future holds.”
