Undefeated. Untied. Unchallenged.
That’s the kind of season it’s been for Dylan Lambrecht. That season got a little more better this weekend at the District Three Track and Field Championships at Shippensburg University.
Lambrecht, a senior thrower from Northern Lebanon, added two more medals to his postseason haul. Lambrecht collected district gold medals in the shot put and discus, although for the first time this spring, he was headed.
On Saturday, Lambrecht needed a 165-02 on his final throw to defeat Northern’s John Barrett to win the discus. Lambrecht’s final attempt edged Barrett by three inches.
On Friday, the Viking 12th-grader had captured gold in the shot put in his usually dominant fashion. Lambrecht uncorked a 57-3.75 to win that event by a comfortable margin of more than three feet.
Lambrecht’s performance gave him six gold medals for the spring. Earlier, Lambrecht had struck gold in both events at the Lancaster-Lebanon League and Lebanon County Track and Field Championships.
He will be looking to increase that number when he competes at the PIAA meet back at Shippensburg University. In the fall, Lambrecht will attend Penn State University to continue pursuing his academic and throwing careers.
