WHS boys remain unbeatenCross Country
The Warwick boys cross country team still has an unblemished record.
With three more wins on Tuesday in a quad-meet at Lebanon, the Warriors improved their record to 10-0 on the season. Although Elizabethtown put two runners in the top four, the Warriors ultimately prevailed 24-37. They also defeated Garden Spot (19-42) and the host Cedars (15-52).
On the girls side, the Lady Warriors beat Lebanon 15-55, but came up just short against GS (25-31) and fell to E-town (19-40).
Michael Urban paced the WHS boys with a second-place finish in 16:58, crossing the line behind only E-town’s Micaiah Schlicher (16:47). But then Warwick clinched it with a strong pack of runners grabbing the fifth through eighth spots in the race. Ben Mueller was at the front of that pack in 17:21, followed closely by Matt Lefever (17:22), Bryson Long (17:28) and Phil Headland (17:29). Others in Warwick’s top eight were Daniel O’Conor, who placed 12th in 18:14, Conor Smith, who was 13th in 18:21 and John Beyer, who finished 17th in 19:08.
Turning to the girls, Kristi Reidenbaugh paced the Lady Warriors with a fifth-place finish in 21:36. Amy Wood (8th, 21:42) added a top-10 finish, while Bomberger (14th, 22:45), Emily Heckman (15th, 23:06), Ruth Ann Long (17th, 23:08), Monika Roschel (18th, 23:15) rounded out the team’s top six.
Elsewhere, the Manheim Central boys went 1-3 at Hempfield, as they beat Northern Lebanon (15-49), but fell to Hempfield (18-42), Solanco (23-35) and LMH (27-30).
Kyle Kegarise led the Barons with a seventh-place finish in 17:33, and he was followed by Mason Hepner in ninth place (17:51), Josh Lachman in 16th place (18:12) and Joshua Haldeman in 17th (18:18).
The Lady Barons, meanwhile, despite getting a first place overall finish by Danae Peters in 20:08, had an 0-3 day at Hempfield, losing to the Black Knights (15-55), Solanco (15-55) and Lancaster Mennonite (15-55). Alex Agesen was Manheim Central’s only other runner in the top 25, placing 23rd in 24:36.
Last Thursday, Urban finished runner-up in 17:14 in Warwick’s first home meet of the season, as the Warriors pulled off a sweep, earning victories over Penn Manor (24-36), Northern Lebanon (15-55), McCaskey (17-49) and Cocalico (15-50).
The Warwick girls also had a strong showing, taking three of a possible four wins. Although they fell just short against Penn Manor (25-30), they defeated Norlebco (15-55), McCaskey (23-27) and Cocalico (25-31).
Reidenbaugh (3rd, 21:50) and Long (6th, 22:26) earned top 10 finishes for Warwick.
In other action, the Manheim Central placed four boys in the top five on their way to a 3-0 finish at Donegal with wins over Columbia (16-48), Donegal (17-45) and Lancaster Catholic (23-32). Hepner was first overall in 17:24, while Kegarise (3rd, 17:51), Haldeman (4th, 18:01) and Lachman (5th, 18:02) finished close behind.
The MC girls got a first-place finish from Peters, but finished 0-2 with losses to Lampeter-Strasburg (15-55) and Donegal (15-55). Peters crossed the line more than two minutes ahead of Lampeter-Strasburg’s Brianna Miranda (22:17) to lead the Lady Barons. More RUNNERS, page B-6
