Peebles’ Jenny Seas breaks regional record in 3200

By Mark Carpenter –

A quartet of local runners saw their 2016 spring seasons continue last week at the Southeast District Division III district track competition, held at Southeastern Ross High School. All four Adams County schools had athletes participating in the district meet, but only Peebles and Manchester will have runners moving to regionals this week.

Perhaps the biggest performance of the district meet was that of Peebles freshman Jenny Seas, who etched her name in the Ohio High School Athletic Association record books with a record-breaking effort in the Girls 3200 Meter Run. Seas ran the two miles in a record time of 11:08.24 to become a district champion, breaking the mark previously held by Federal Hocking’s Emily Dunfee, set in 2008 (11:46.10).

It was more of a banner say for the Seas family as brothers Dan and Matthew also will be moving on to regional competition, Dan winning the Boys 3200 Meter run in a time of 9:39.86, with brother Matthew right behind in second place with his time of 10:01.95.

“Dan, Matt, and Jenny Seas are all headed to the regionals for us,” said Peebles head track coach Tyler Wilson. “They all had great times and are looking promising to keep moving forward in the tournament. They have all worked extremely hard all year long and I am excited about the upcoming regional races.”

The other countian headed to the regional meet is Manchester’s junior Brendon Kessler, who earned that trip with a third place finish in the Boys 200 Meter Dash. Kessler’s time of 24.14 was third behind Paint Valley’s Tony Hatfield and Whiteoak’s Derrick Ison.

The Division III regional track tournament will be held from May 25-27 at Fairfield Union High School near Lancaster, with trips to the state meet in Columbus on the line. All four Adams County runners will be in action on Friday night, May 27.
