Becky broke her own GISA state record with a vault of 13 feet ½ inch to win the meet. Ariel cleared 10 feet 6 inches to finish as the runner-up.
Becky added a second-place finish in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet 3 inches and took sixth place in the 300-meter hurdles.
Other Weber competitors included Marni Rein, who was 12th in discuss, and Luke Pearlman, who placed 15th in the 1,600-meter finals.
The Weber girls finished ninth out of 21 schools in GISA Class AAA.
Weber Baseball Misses Playoffs
Despite posting the second-best win-loss record in school history at 10-6, the Weber baseball team finished one win shy of making the GISA Region 1AAA playoffs.
The Rams, who finished before Passover with an 8-6 record within the region, were one game behind Bethlehem Christian, which posted a 9-5 regional record. Trinity Christian and the Heritage School each finished 11-3, and Loganville Christian, which Weber beat convincingly at home April 19 in the Rams’ season finale, ended with a 10-4 regional record.
Weber’s baseball team is graduating five seniors but looks to reach the postseason in 2017, its first year in the Georgia High School Association, behind a young pitching staff. Only Kyle Rabinowitz is graduating among this year’s pitchers, six of whom are underclassmen.
“We are already looking forward to our GHSA schedule for next year,” said Weber’s head baseball coach, Scott Seagraves.
