North Penn sweeps Colonial – thereporteronline

BUCKINGHAM – It may have rained at their parade, but it didn’t take the time.

“It means everything to us,” said Anthony Ayala Jr. of North Penn about winning the SOL Colonial Championship on this wet Saturday. “We went undefeated in the regular season, came here today and did what we had to. In a row, two years in a row. “

“It’s really nice to do it on the team,” repeated Taylor Forbes of Knights, whose character helps lift the NP girls to first place. “We were there for each other.”

The North Penn boys and girls team enjoyed a rainy but hearty day on the track and on field Saturdays at Central Bucks East High School, when both made a huge, balanced effort to win the division’s crown.

The North Penn boys have won their second title in a row and are doing so six out of seven years for the NP girls after rival Central Bucks West took the trophy a season ago. The Knights won the crown every year from 2015 to ’19 (2020 was canceled due to COVID).

“I think everyone thought about it,” Forbes said of returning the title this spring.

The boys from the NP scored 198.5 points, overcoming the impressive result of the opponent CB West (185).

Jabri Gaimon was first in the high jump (6-0) and triple (44-2) for the Knights, and in the 4 × 100 relay took first place in 42.65 seconds.

North Penn came out with one medal-winning performance after another.

Ayala Jr., who finished second in the 400, said: “Now we are just looking for more progress in the districts.”

Bucks was secured by a throw for Colin Newman’s first place (45-1) in the throw, as well as J. P. Tomlinson, who first scored 12-6 in the pole vault.

Meanwhile, the girls from North Penn have won six competitions and finished second and third in several others.

“It’s been a long day, but it’s been good,” Forbes said with a smile. “This is a great start to the postseason. I’m happy with that. We will return to the drawing board in the districts, fix everything we need, and we will prepare. “

Forbes had a great day in the races, winning the triple (37-1.75) and finishing second in length (17-0.75). North Peng actually topped the top three in the long jump, thanks to Madison Gee (17-10), Forbes and Madeline Lewis (16-10.5).

The 4 × 100 Nordic Pen Relay continued its stellar season with a 48.51 first place finish, while Dominic Bethel won the drive for the NP (102-0), Kumba Samasa won 5-2 and won the high jump, and Gardenia Michael threw 114- 10 take jav.
