His high school track and field season is over, but that doesn’t mean Tim Moses isn’t working on his craft.
The Palmyra grad cleared 16 feet Friday to take the gold medal at the State Games of America track and field meet at Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg. Moses won the age 17-19 division and in the process set a new stadium record with the vault.
Moses went up against competitors from as far away as Georgia and Texas at McDevitt’s brand-new pole vault facility.
Martel 10th at Pocono: Kyle Martel can only hope Friday’s ARCA race translates into another good showing today.
The Cedar Crest grad placed 10th during the ModSpace 125 at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, finishing a lap back of the lead pack. Martel will be back on the Pocono track today for the Pocono Mountains 125 truck race, scheduled for 1 p.m. on Speed Channel.
Fellow Lebanon County driver Bobby Gerhart took 17th and was a lap behind Martel when the checkered flag waved.
Corey Lajoie took the win – his second in three starts in the ARCA Series – while Frank Kimmel, the series points leader, was second. LaJoie came from the rear of the 36-car field to win in his first race at Pocono. LaJoie is the son of Randy LaJoie, a two-time champion on NASCAR’s second-tier circuit.
Hole-in-one: Tyler Massar recorded his first hole-in-one during the Sullivan Fourball Invitational last Friday at Lebanon Country Club. The shot came on the 152-yard 14th hole with playing partners Brady Demey, Bill Allen and Byron Whitman looking on.
