WUHS hosts County XC Meet

An annual tradition took place on Tuesday, Sept. 22 at West Union High School as the Dragons hosted the 2015 Adams County Cross-Country Meet, pitting the junior high and high school girls and boys squads from the four county schools against each other. It was also a night where seniors were recognized as it was their final county meet to participate in.

Three of the county teams took home team titles as Peebles took the high school boys title, Manchester the high school girls, West Union the junior high boys, and Manchester the junior high girls. Though they did not take home any team title, it was still a good day for the runners from North Adams as they placed five runners on the All-County teams.

“I was extremely pleased with all of our runners and their performances,” said North Adams junior high and high school coach Kelly Boerger. “All 19 of our runners improved their time from their last race in West Union and four of them got personal records and that is saying a lot because West Union’s course is a winding course which makes kids slow down multiple times during a race. Having five of our 19 runners medal is an amazing accomplishment for us.”

In the junior high girls race, 15 girls ran the course and finishing first was Peebles’ Alisan Behr who finished with a time of 14:33. The top seven runners in each race earned All-County honors and the rest of the top seven in the junior high girls competition were Alyssa Mays (North Adams, 15:05), Megan Stamm (Manchester, 15:27), Katie Fulton (West Union, 15:36), Kendra Grooms (West Union, 15:37), Katrina Boldman (West Union, 16:17), and Jenna McClanahan (Manchester, 17:02).

The junior high girls team title went to Manchester with a total of 26 points, followed by North Adams at 31.

Taking first place out of 34 runners in the junior high boys race was Manchester eighth grader Dalton Williams in a time of 12:46. Rounding out the All-County junior high boys runners were Damon Baker (North Adams, 12:59), Josh Zamora (Manchester, 13:11), Levi Carter (West Union, 13:28), Trenton McCann (North Adams, 13:31), Colt Parker (West Union, 13:34), and John McIlwain (North Adams, 14:15).

The junior high boys title went to West Union with their team score of 41, followed by Manchester with 46, North Adams with 57, and Peebles with 78.

For the high school girls race, 21 girls came to the start line and the first one to cross the finish line was Peebles freshman Jenny Seas, who won the 3.1 mile race with a time of 19:33. The next six finishers behind Seas were West Union’s Ashley Hackworth and Madigan Marshall, with times of 21:30 and 22:30 respectively. Following next were Manchester’s Shyanne Tucker at 22:39, Peebles’ Abby Faulkner at 22:53, Manchester’s Billie Jean Kinhalt at 22:55, and Manchester’s Kelsey Friend at 23:07.

The high school girls team title went to the Lady Hounds of Manchester with their low point total of 25, with West Union second at 32.

The high school boys race consisted of 20 runners and the top two finishers were a pair of brothers from Peebles. Senior Dan Seas finished first with a time of 17:10 , while his sophomore brother Matt was second with a time of 18:08. Following the Seas brothers were three Manchester runners, Jamie Combs with a time of 18:34, Gage Lucas with a time of 19:27, and Rickey DeAtley with a time of 19:42. Rounding out the All-County runners were North Adams’ George Hesler at 20:54 and Peebles’ Seth Chamblin at 20:57.

Taking the high school boys team title was Peebles with their low score of 24, followed in second by Manchester at 34.
