Manchester cross county sweeps meet

Both the Manchester boy’s and girl’s cross country teams took home first place in a meet at Fayetteville on Aug. 29.

In the boys race, Manchester didn’t have a single runner finish in the top 10, but ran a consistent enough race as a team to take home the top team prize as sophomore Gage Lucas finished 11th, sophomore Logan Hanson finished 13th, senior Rickey DeAtley finished 19th, sophomore Austin Stamper finished 20th and junior Brendon Kessler finished 21st.

The Manchester girls had a particularly good outing as well as junior Kelsey Friend finished second overall, junior Shyanne Tucker finished sixth, senior Amanda Farthing finished ninth, junior Lydia Lopez finished 10th, and junior Xena Crummie finished 11th.

Peebles was well represented individually by the Seas family as senior Dan Seas and his sophomore brother Matt finished first and second in the boys race and their freshman sister Jenny finished first in the girls race.

Dan Seas ran the best pace of all the participants averaging 5:02 per mile while his sister Jenny averaged a 6:02 mile to lead the girls.
