Pennywitt breaks MHS school record for third time this season in HS Boys race –

By Mark Carpenter –

The 2016 Southern Hills Athletic Conference is in the books, and runners from the four Adams County schools represented them quite well in the Oct. 15 meet held on the course at Ripley High School.  The county produced champions in the two high school races, with Matt Seas taking the boys race and sister Jenny Seas winning the girls.  Also in the high school boys race, Manchester’s Ethan Pennywitt broke the school record for the third time this season, in just his junior year.
In the high school girls race consisting of 53 runners, it was a “no contest” as Jenny Seas blew away the competition with her time of 18:01.5, nearly two minutes faster than the second place finisher, Fairfield’s Ciara Colwell (20:02.1).  The top 15 runners in the SHAC race are recognized with All-Conference honors and besides Seas, six more county girls finished in the top 15.  West Union’s Anna Shupert was fifth (21:30.7), Manchester’s Shyanne Tucker sixth (21:45.2), Peebles’ Abby Faulkner 10th (22:26.7), Manchester’s Kelsey Friend 11th (22:28.0), Manchester’s Billie Kinhalt 14th (22:37.2), and Peebles’ Alisan Behr 15th (22:51.4).
For the past three season, the high school girls team title went to Manchester, but that string was broken  last week by the Fairfield Lady Lions, with the Lady Hounds placing third.  It was a good day overall for the teams from Fairfield, as they won the team titles for the high school girls, high school boys, and junior high boys.
The runners from Adams County had a little tougher time cracking the top 15 in the high school boys race, but the county has a champion in Matt Seas, who won the race of 89 runners in a time of 16:14.3.  Manchester’s Pennywitt continued his record-breaking junior season, again breaking his own school record and placing fourth with a time of 16:55.8.  Fairfield placed eight runners in the top 15, not leaving much room for any others, and the only other countian to earn All-Conference honors was Manchester’s Jamie Combs who grabbed the 15th spot with a time of 17:54.6.

With their monopoly on the top 15, Fairfield easily won the high school boys team championship, with Manchester finishing third and West Union fourth.
The SHAC also had their junior high races in Ripley last Saturday and in the junior high boys event, the top county finisher was Trenton McCann from North Adams, who finished fourth out of 81 runner in a time of 11:29.  Manchester’s Denton White was seventh at 11:32 and West Union’s Braxton Blanton placed 13th in a time of 11:54.
As it has been all season, the junior high girls race was another battle between Manchester’s Mckenzie Morrison and Peebles’ Katy Seas.  This time the battle went to Morrison, who captured the SHAC title with a first-place time of 11:51 with Seas coming in second at 12:18.  Adams County was again well represented in the top 15, with Manchester’s Abby Freeman fifth (12:40), North Adams’ Ainsley Grooms sixth (12:54), West Union’s Katie Fulton seventh (12:56), West Union’s Kendra Grooms ninth (13:09), and also from WUJH, Adelyn Shupert 11th (13:12).
