Spent after running the final leg of the 4x400-meter relay, West Mifflin senior Micah Watts walked over to the southeast corner of his home Titan Stadium for the Tri-State Track & Field Coaches Association long jump finals, already in progress.

Even after passing on his first attempt and just getting his shoes on in time for his next attempt, Watts jumped 21 feet, 4 inches to add a silver to the two golds he already had in hand from earlier in Saturday's meet.

Watts appeared to run with the wind at his back Saturday, but the West Mifflin senior noted after his second gold that his home stadium was abnormally windless. The sprinter said he was helped by the calm conditions, winning the 100-meter dash in a personal-best 10.97 seconds and the 200-meter dash in 22.69 seconds.

His second gold came by a slimmer margin -- Watts edged Penn Hills' Alex Trower by 0.24 seconds in the 100 meters and by just 0.12 seconds in the 200 meters -- in a race Watts said he didn't think had won until he hit the straightaway.

"When you're on the curve and you pass someone on the inside lane, straightaway you're going to get them unless they come back," Watts said. "I knew I had to go hard the last 50 meters."

Watts was one of three athletes to take home gold in two individual events, along with Burrell junior Nicole Scherer, who also won at 100 and 200 meters, and Penn Hills junior Isaiah Bailey, who finished first in the boys 800 and 1,600.

Scherer, who won the WPIAL and PIAA Class AA titles at 100 meters as a sophomore last year, earned commanding victories in both of her races, finishing the 200-meter dash in 24.67 seconds, 0.91 seconds ahead of silver medalist Emily Horstman of Butler.

Bailey said he didn't run the 800 meters much until later last season, but improved enough to take eighth in last year's WPIAL meet. …
