Central Bucks South senior Tom Mallon broke the Pennsylvania record in the 800 meters Friday at the Pennsylvania Distance Festival at West Chester Henderson.

Mallon won the event with a fully-automatic time of 1 minute, 49.01 seconds, bettering the previous hand-held time of 1:48.8 set by Archbishop Kennedy's Paul Vandegrift in 1987. Vandegrift's time converts to a fully-automatic 1:49.04, thus giving Mallon the record.

The Stanford signee's time is also the nation's best of the season, according to MileSplit.us.

Boys' Volleyball

Pennsbury and Pennridge successfully made it through Class AAA pool play at the PIAA state championships at Penn State and will face each other in Saturday's 11 a.m. semifinals for a chance to play in the finals.

Pennsbury, the District 1 runner-up, won all three of its pool-play matches to win Pool A, but District 1 champ Pennridge won just one of three matches and needed a tiebreaker to advance as the No. 2 team in Pool B behind North Allegheny.

Girls' Soccer
