Fox Chapel’s Kate Carnevale, Bethel Park’s Emily Carter, Oakland Catholic’s Jayla Ellis and Baldwin’s Brendan O’Malley won two individual events apiece.
Carnevale also helped Fox Chapel win the girls distance medley relay.
Anderson won the boys mile in 4:19.07, just ahead of North Allegheny senior Zachary Kinne (4:19.42). Anderson’s time was the fastest run by any Pennsylvania high school athlete this winter and Kinne’s now ranks second, according to MileSplit statistics.
