The fleetest feet belonged to Emily Carter this track season as the Bethel Park sophomore raced to new heights. During the PIAA Championships held at Shippensburg University, the 16-year-old broke the state record in winning the gold medal in the 3,200-meter run. She won the eight-lap race in 10:16.02. Carter also was the WPIAL 3,200-meter champion. The mile run at states was equally impressive. Carter captured the bronze medal with a personal-best time of 4:53.87. That was nearly six seconds faster than her WPIAL-winning mark of 4:59.42. However, gold medalist Taryn Parks from Greencastle and silver medalist Marlee Starliper from Northern set a blazing pace. They both went under the state record with times of 4:37.07 and 4:37.45, respectively. Those numbers are the top times in the nation this spring. Earlier this month, Carter competed in the New Balance Nationals held in Greensboro, N.C.
