Laurel Highlands' Dontay Jacobs win the boys Class AAA 200-meter dash during the WPIAL track and field championships Thursday, May 14, 2015, at Baldwin High School.

Seton Hill junior Dontay Jacobs has the fastest time in the 400-meter dash in the PSAC so far this indoor season.

Nobody could catch him in the voting for PSAC Track and Field Athlete of the Week either.

Jacobs, a Laurel Highlands graduate, picked up the weekly honor after winning the 400 and contributing to a victory in the 1,600-meter relay at the Youngstown State Mid-Major Invitational.

He won the 400 in 48.51 seconds. His top time in that event is 48.05, which came earlier in the season at the YSU Collegiate Invitational.

The relay finished in 3 minutes, 18.08 seconds.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
