H.S. boys track: Shikellamy's Wary can't beat his buddy at Susquehanna University High School Classic


He said that he, Cuozzo and Selinsgrove senior hurdler Mike Ede, who finished third in the intermediates and second to Southern's Rarig in the high hurdles, all talk and hope that all three can get to Shippensburg for the state meet.

"We hope we can get there and do well there, too," he said.

Wary said he is making progress, especially from where he was two weeks ago at the Selinsgrove High School Classic "from how ugly my form was to getting it tighter now, perfecting it almost."

Wary holds the school record in the intermediates, having broken his own record of 39.49 with Saturday's showing. And he loves the event. "It's the toughest, and it's the best," he said. "It's my best event, I like it a lot. But there come times when I don't because I'm not that good of a hurdler, but I'm very good at running in between hurdles. So sometimes, going over the hurdles, it doesn't look pretty, and it's not fun going over hurdles."

But, if he could just beat Cuozzo, that would be fun. "It's going to feel real good. I've never won gold at districts before, so I don't know how that would feel."

For now, he just hopes for the chance for find out.
