Franklin High School sophomore Abby Jones, for the second consecutive year, captured the silver medal in the girls’ high jump competition at the PIAA Class “AAA” track-and-field championships on Friday at Shippensburg University.

Jones matched the gold medal jump of 5 feet, 8 inches recorded by Franklin’s Liz Bodnar in 1995.  She was unsuccessful in three attempts at 5′-9″.

The event was won with a state record jump of 5 feet, 11-and-3-quarters inches by Fleetwood High School’s Cyre Virgo.

Winning a silver medal in the boys’ “AA” javelin competition on Friday was north Clarion High School senior Mitch Obenrader, launching a throw of 182 feet.  Montoursville’s Mat Krezmer took the gold medal with a toss of 182′-5″.
