SHARON —

SHIPPENSBURG — The opening day of the annual PIAA Track & Field Championships did not play out as planned — at least at the outset —- for Mercer County’s contingent. But as the day waned and clouds converged over Shippensburg University’s Seth Grove Stadium, the sun broke through in the person of Hickory High’s Lauren Lubarski.



Lubarski — a junior and Hickory High’s first 4-event state qualifier — rallied to win the high-jump competition with a personal-best 5-foot-4, upsetting Northwestern’s top-seeded Nicole Lockard and North East’s 2nd-seeded Alexandra Schriefer.
