WILLIAMSPORT — NEB’s Creed Dewing used a strong kick to take fourth in the 1600 at the District IV Track and Field Championships Saturday, running 4:26.57 to earn a state berth.

His final lap was his fastest, running 1:05.04 to catch up to the lead pack. He made state time by three seconds.


“I wasn’t even worried about it,” said Dewing. “I was just trying to stay clear minded, just run my race, and it paid off. I just eased the nerves out and I just ran my race.”


Dewing’s goal was to go out a little more measured.


“I just wanted to get in the group, stay in contact, and then just know that I could out last them,” he said.


Dewing went out to lane three to pass runners down the home stretch.


I had a good competitor on my left, and I stuck right there - shoulder to shoulder - and kicked it out,” he remarked.


Dewing nearly made states in the 800, running 1:59.94, less than a second away from state time. He finished sixth in the race.


Aiden Kapr just missed the podium, running 42.90 to take ninth in the 300 hurdles.


Ryan Jones was 13th in the 3200 in 10:23.89, 21st in the 1600 in 4:58.33, and 20th in the 800 in 2:14.99.


Tyler Russel was 11th in the discus at 110-feet, 4-inches, Brayden Miller took 14th in the 800 in 2:05.34.


The 4x400 relay took 10th in 3:38.75.


The PIAA Championships are at Shippensburg University next weekend.
