20190401-ce-sp Newton HJ record

Elk County Catholic’s Taylor Newton brushes the bar last year at districts as she clears 5-6 to win the high jump, tying a 40-year-old District 9 Class AA Track & Field Championship meet record set by ECC’s Laura Lynch in 1978. Newton, who went on to place fourth at states, is now a junior and will be called upon to be a leader for a Lady Crusader team that lost 13 seniors to graduation.
