On Tuesday, Sep. 12, 2017, the Manson Trojan Cross Country team competed at Bridgeport. This was Manson’s first cross country meet for the season, and it seemed to set the stage for the season as the Manson boys placed second just behind Tonasket, beating Okanogan, Brewster, Bridgeport, and Oroville.
Manson’s first place finisher was Eddie Sarmeinto, followed by Conner Torgesen. “The boys’ team looks promising with great talent and depth this year,” Coach Kevin Sanford said. “We are still a young team and future looks bright.”
On the girl’s side, Libbey Ireland was Manson’s first finisher, running well and placing sixth overall. Grace Cullison and Addie Torgesen followed.
Manson’s 4th Annual Trojan Invite is slated for this Saturday, Sep. 16 with a new course at Wapato Point. The MAX Family Fun Run & Walk is at 9 a.m. followed by the middle school cross country race and girls and boys high school races.
Lake Chelan Community Hospital and the Lake Chelan Health & Wellness Foundation is helping once again with the event hoping for a well-attended turnout this Saturday.
