Herald staff

---- — Neshannock High’s Lizzie Manickas and Robbie Kroner combined to sweep the individual accolades, but the Hickory and West Middlesex girls’ and boys’ earned team titles during Saturday’s 15th annual Hickory Hornet Harrier Cross Country Invitational.

Manickas maneuvered the Hermitage course in 19:54 to outdistance Hickory’s Lexi Bible by 19 seconds, while Kroner copped a 19-second win over Greenville’s Dylan Foley.

However the Lady Hornets of veteran headmaster Tony Mastrian and Big Reds of West Middlesex mentor Bob Morris won in respective 12- and 14-team fields. Hickory edged Laurel, 68-71, while West Middlesex mustered 59 markers to easily outdistance runner-up Cochranton.

In addition to Bible, teammates Jackie Abraham, Haley Boyd, and Bailey and Paige Brown placed 5th, 12th, 17th and 32nd, respectively. Their pack time was 3:32.

“Through the preseason they’ve been running well as a team,” Mastrian assessed. “They have some room to grow, but at this stage they’re running very, very well. It was a great team effort.”

Morris’ Middlesex men were led by the 5-6 finish of David Johnson and Levi Canon, while Jared Germani, Brett Kirk and Dylan Long lent 12th-, 15th- and 21st-place finishes. They were separated by only 57 seconds.
