Due to her involvement in a number of sports, Reagan Hess is a very busy young lady. But Hess still finds time for a hobby.
You see, the Annville-Cleona junior is a collector. She collects medals.
At this weekend’s PIAA Track and Field Championships at Shippensburg University’s Seth Grove Stadium, Hess added two more to her collection. They were the eighth and ninth medals she earned this spring.
On Friday evening, Hess garnered a silver medal in the Class AA long jump with a leap of 19-1, a personal best. Then on Saturday afternoon, she picked up some fifth-place hardware in the 100-meter dash, with a time of 12.23.
A week earlier, at the District Three T&F meet, on the same Seth Grove Stadium grounds, Hess had copped three gold medals. She won the 200-meter dash, the 100-meter dash, as well as the long jump.
But back in April, at the Lebanon County Track and Field Championships at Lebanon High School, Hess took home four gold medals. Hess, who could become Lebanon County’s all-time leading goal scorer among female soccer players this fall, finished first in the long jump, the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash and anchored Annville-Cleona’s winning 400-meter relay team.
