ALTOONA — Halfway through Tuesday’s District 6 Class AA Track and Field Championships at Mansion Park, Penns Valley held the girls’ team lead.
Forest Hills senior Marlee Zubek has been steadily improving in her throws all season.
With rain pouring down and air temperatures brisk most of the afternoon, creating less than ideal conditions for Tuesday’s Laurel Highlands Athletic Conference track and field championships at Somerset Area High School, Zubek took a slight step backwards, but she still posted victories in both the javelin and the discus.
Zubek and her teammates helped the Rangers rack up 145 points to outdistance second-place Central Cambria, which had 121, to claim the LHAC crown.
