Maxana Grubb's fifth place in nationals completes big weekend for Amherst's sister duo

Maxana Grubb made it a successful weekend on the track for the Amherst's dynamic sister act at the New Balance Outdoor Nationals at Aggie Stadium on the campus of North Carolina A&T in Greensboro, N.C..

Maxana, a junior, finished fifth Sunday in the girls 800 championship in 2:07.65, faster than her winning time of 2:10.84 in winning the Section VI 800 two weeks ago.

She was second in the 800 in the state public schools meet in Middletown.

Her younger sister, Mallory, a freshman who is the Section VI 3,200 meters champion, had finished fourth Friday in the freshman 1-mile race in the New Balance meet then came in 15th Saturday in the Emerging Elite 2-mile run.

Twelve-year-old Jada Kenner of Tapestry collected four medals in the New Balance meet, which wrapped up Sunday. She finished fourth in the junior high 400 meters on Thursday in 56.18 as the only seventh-grader in the race. On Friday, she was fourth in the Emerging Elite 100. On Saturday, she was third in the Emerging Elite 200 and ran the second leg for Tapestry's 4 x 100 relay, which was the lone New York state team to reach the Emerging Elite final. The team of Nyrelle Simpson, Kenner, Angel Marshall and Nia Stevens had set a school record of 47.84 seconds in the semifinals
