Fall Sports: A roundup of action from October 8

NEW CASTLE — Neshannock High’s Robbie Kroner and Lizzie Manickas dominated again yesterday.

Kroner and Manickas won the boys and girls races, respectively, in a cross country meet against Laurel and Beaver on the Lancers’ home course.

Kroner posted a course-record time of 17:44. Laurel’s Ethan Wilson held the old mark of 17:54.

Manickas claimed first in a course-best 20:33. She set the old record of 20:50 at the Tri-County on Saturday.

Kroner and Manickas are both seniors.

“They did very well,” Neshannock coach Dave Antognoli said of Kroner and Manickas. “It’s their home course and their last race on that course as a Neshannock runner. They responded to that and ran hard.

“It’s a tough course and they ran hard. The conditions were favorable for the runners, too.”

The Lancers split the boys matches, topping Laurel (19-36) and falling to Beaver (23-36). The Bobcats defeated the Spartans (15-47).

Laurel’s Jarod Smith finished third in the junior high race in 11:18 and Neshannock’s Arthur Tanyel placed fifth in 11:34.

Natalie Sheen placed seventh for the Lady Lancers in 23:44 and Reagan Wish was 23rd in 27:11. Laura Na (25th, 28:10) and Sydney Cosgrove (29th, 29:14) also competed for Neshannock.

Alison Filer placed second in the girls race in 21:49 for Laurel, while Cassandra Patterson placed third in 22:20. Mia Muraca (4th, 23:03), Katie McClelland (5th, 23:37) and Stephanie Kaminsky (6th, 23:43) also competed for the Lady Spartans.

The Lady Spartans swept the competition in the girls varsity race, defeating Neshannock (20-41) and Beaver (15-46). The Lady Bobcats upended the Lady Lancers, 25-36.
