H.S. CROSS COUNTRY: Panthers run away with title


COCHRANTON — WM’s White wins girls race

West Middlesex’s Kristen White was the first to the finish line in yesterday’s girls’ event, finishing the loop in 19:35.

The Big Reds had a good group overall, with Chloe Tyillian in third (19:53), Alyson Pierce in 13th (20:49), Anna Zrile in 23rd (21:38) and Jordan Aubel in 32nd (22:23).

Not far behind White, however, was Cambridge Springs’ Reilly Walsh, who was second in 19:42, just seven seconds off the Big Reds leader.

“I actually came in second here last year,” said Walsh, “and had a time of 19:44, so I beat my time by (couple) seconds, so I’m happy with it. It was good.”

Cambridge also got some team points out of Olivia Mamula (14th, 20:51) and Sadie Brown (29th, 22:04).

The Meadville girls also boasted a nice showing as a team.

“It was a good effort,” said MASH head coach Chuck Jones. “You’re starting to get a feel for the teams that are going to be involved in that second place spot in the district to get to states. Hickory is one of them, General McLane, Grove City, ourselves. Villa is probably heads and tails better than anyone in the district. But every time we compete head-to-head with one of those teams it tells us what we have to do to prepare to make that run at the end of the year.”

Paige Yoder led the Lady Bulldogs with a fifth-place finish of 20:21 while Meredith (Mimi) Prather was seventh in 20:26.

“Both of them are very strong freshmen,” said Jones.

MASH also had a well-place 3-4-5 group with Abbey Peters at 27th (21:51), Libby Volna at 31st (22:14) and Sammy Whitney at 33rd (22:26).

Conneaut finished eighth as a team. Brooke Phelps had a nice late charge while passing a couple runners down the home stretch on her way to 21st place time of 21:32.

Other area finishers include Lakeview’s Andrea McConnell (28th, 21:55), Saegertown’s Breanna Ferguson (39th, 22:37) and Jamestown’s Lindsey Anderson (40th, 22:37).

  • Steelers camp Steelers LB Spence caps lengthy comeback

    The whistle blew and Sean Spence sprinted forward, each cathartic step distancing the linebacker from the horrific knee injury that threatened to end his NFL career before it even really began.
    Spence almost gleefully smashed into fullback Bryce Davis during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first full contact drill of training camp on Monday. The two tussled for several seconds before Davis — his fists full of Spence’s jersey — pulled them both to the ground.

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
