May 25, 1991 - Northwestern’s Mike Wertman and Northern Lehigh’s Bob Chandler both medal on the first day of the PIAA State Track & Field Championships. Wertman finishes tied for second in the high jump, while Chandler crosses fifth in the 3200. Wertman clears 6-7 on his first attempt, but comes up short three times at 6-8 - the winning height for Sheffield’s Matt Benson. Chandler, who earned a third at states in cross country, deals with 90-plus degree temperatures to run a 9:58.77 in the 3200 and place fifth.
