PINE — Karns City senior Amber Saunders set a meet record in the high jump with a height of 5 feet, 4 inches Friday at the Pine-Richland Invitational.

Saunders set the old meet record of 5-2 last season.

With her leap, Saunders also broke the school record of 5-3 that she set last season. She is looking to jump 5-5 or 5-6 by the end of this season, as she pursues a state Class AA championship.

The meet was cancelled with only 25 of 36 events finished because of lightning.

Other local athletes winning medals for Karns City were Nicole Harmon (7th, 1600), Stephanie Stoughton (7th, javelin), Alaina Burns (8th, discus), Anthony Stimac (8th, 400), Nick Sypolski (8th, discus) and the boys’ 400 relay team (8th).

Placing for Freeport were Mitch Shaw (8th, 100-meter dash), Harley Westerman (6th, long jump), Alex Isenberg (8th, triple jump) and the boys’ 3200 relay team (5th).

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
