Prior to the start of the afternoon track finals during the Northern Tier League Large School championship meet at Wyalusing Valley’s Peterson Stadium, the school recognized its first state champion. The high jump area at Peterson Stadium was dedicated to the memory of Robert Hanzok, who won the event at the PIAA Class B championships in 1968. Hanzok died earlier this year after a long battle with health problems.
