Greater Latrobe hosted Hempfield Area in WPIAL Class 3A, Section 1 track and field action Tuesday, but the Spartans came away with the sweep at Latrobe Memorial Stadium.

Ryan Sickenberger and Brennan Campbell led the Wildcats each winning two events. Sickenberger placed first in the 100 (:11.35) and long jump (19-0), while Campbell won the 110 hurdles (:15.66) and 300 hurdles in :41.83.

The Greater Latrobe boys won three relays: 3200 (8:41.00), 400 (:45.19) and 1600 in 3:30.83.

The Lady Wildcats won five track events.

Morgan Reilly topped the 1600 (5:39.59), Lauren Davis prevailed in the 400 (1:04.67) and Alexis Planinsek won the 3200 in 13:13.33.

The girls also won the 3200 relay (10:23.20) and 1600 relay in 4:18.28.

The Westmoreland County Coaches Association (WCCA) Track and Field Championships were moved to Saturday because of impending inclement weather.

The event was scheduled to take place Thursday at Memorial Stadium, but it was moved to Saturday morning to combat the local weather forecast, which is calling for showers and thunderstorms on Thursday.
