ATHENS — Less than two years after taking track season off to concentrate on her basketball career, Athens senior Emily Lunger signed a letter-of-intent here Monday afternoon to compete in track & field at Division 1 St. Francis University, located in Loretto, Pa.
ATHENS — Emily Lunger has played three different sports - which are soccer, basketball and track - in her high school career at Athens.
ATHENS — Athens senior Breana Gambrell, a four-time PIAA gold medalist, gave a verbal commitment to Penn State University Sunday afternoon, and will continue her track & field there beginning in 2018-19.
The Athens girls cruised to the team title at the Molly Dry Invitational on Thursday as Breana Gambrell won four events and set three meet records. Gambrell broke meet records in both the long jump and 100 meters, and also won the triple jump and was part of the winning 4x100 relay that set a meet record. Towanda's Jessica Tice broke the meet record in the shot.
The landscape of high school sports in Pennsylvania will have a brand new look next year.
