The Abington Heights girls track and field program has established high standards for itself over the past decade.
This year was no different.
The Lady Comets won a Lackawanna Track Conference title for the seventh straight year, having won 44 straight meets, and delivered its ninth such crown in 10 years.
All that success seems to drive the program, and coach Frank Passetti believes that does not burden his athletes. They all understand success is a fleeting thing that needs to be first and foremost in their thoughts.
At the start of this softball season, Abington Heights seniors Kelsey Sarafinko and Kiana Sladicki looked over a talented pool of underclassmen - especially the freshmen - and recalled their days as ninth-graders trying to make their mark.
Sarafinko, a shortstop, and Sladicki, the catcher, had memories that were not all good and, with their fellow seniors, aimed to ensure that history wouldn't repeat itself.
