NTL Schools run well at District Championships

Wellsboro's Aidan Perry qualifies for states

 

by Ed Weaver - October 28, 2016

Local NTL Cross Country teams squared off in the rain and cold for a District championship at Bloomsburg University on Thursday, October 27.

In the Class A girls race, Troy scored 80 places to edge out Northeast Bradford for the team title by 5 spots. North Penn-Mansfield (146) was 7th, Canton (158) was 8th, Wyalusing (226) finished 9th, and Sayre (230) finished 10th.

Northeast Bradford’s Karli Moyer (21:03) was the highest NTL finisher in 4th, followed by North Penn-Mansfield’s Lyndsey Payne (21:30) in 6th, and Troy’s Courtney Case (21:56) in 8th.

In the Class AA girls race, Danville won with 55 places and was followed by Selinsgrove with 79. Wellsboro (223) was the highest NTL team in 9th, Cowanesque Valley (287) was 11th, Towanda (343) was 14th, and Athens (346) was 15th.

CV’s Jules Jones qualified for states with a 7th place finish in 20:09, Wellsboro’s Anna Bleggi was 19th overall in 21:10, and teammate Kayla Mengee was 33rd in 22:31. Rounding out the Wellsboro girls finishers were Rachel Chamberlain (23:43) in 51st, Jaime Palmer (24:08) in 58th, Kara Doane (24:59) in 72nd, Kylie Butler (25:03) in 74th, and Emma Palmer (27:12) in 92nd.

In the Class A boys race Northeast Bradford took home the top spot with 28 places, followed by Southern Columbia in 2nd with 55 places. Wellsboro (115) finished 4th overall, followed by Wyalusing (116) in 5th, Troy (177) in 6th, Canton (182) in 7th, Sullivan County (207) in 9th, and Sayre (259) in 10th.

Northeast Bradford’s Casey Ellis and Garret Smith finished 1-2, Wellsboro’s Aidan Perry clocked in at 5th place in 17:37 to qualify for states, and Wyalusing’s Alex Patton was 7th. Rounding out the rest of the Wellsboro runners were Connor Brought (18:42) in 19th, Austin Richards (19:15) in 28th, Alden Weiner (19:34) in 35th, Bergen Weiner (19:39) in 36th, Zack Busch (20:17) in 45th, and Bryon Callahan (20:48) in 52nd.

In the Class AA boys race, Milton won with 60 places and Lewisburg was 2nd with 71. Athens (275) was the top NTL team in 9th, Cowanesque Valley (308) was 12th, Towanda (318) was 13th, and North Penn-Mansfield (407) was 17th. Athens’ Camden Allen (17:55) qualified for states with a 14th place finish and CV’s Madden Doud (17:56) finished in 15th in 17:56 to make the state cut.

“We really ran well,” said North Penn-Mansfield head coach Jason Fletcher. “I think out of 12 teams in the girls race we came in 7th and Lyndsey came in 6th and was 1 off going to states. Its a disappointment, she taking it well, but she has a really position attitude. She’s already looking ahead to the track season and thinking about the off-season in between.”

Wellsboro head coach Ron Brought was also pleased with his team’s performance.

“We had a really strong day. The conditions are less than favorable but they ended the season well. Both teams ran better than expected, finished well within the NTL placings, but there was some great competition today as well.”

The PIAA Championships will take place in Hershey on Saturday, November 5th.
