Manchester runners advance to regionals
By Eric Christiansen
 
CULVER -- Continuing their stellar seasons, the Manchester High School cross country teams both advanced to regional this weekend.
 
The girls' team finished in second place, while the boys' team crossed the finish line in fourth place.
 
"The culture has changed," Manchester coach Jody Sarber said. "The group of kids we have are very inexperienced by most measures. We have many freshmen on our varsity rosters as well as two boys and two girls who are first time cross country runners. Despite that, this year's group works very hard, is very positive, and wants to succeed.
 
"We are successful as a team with one front runner and one tight pack for both the boys and girls," he added. "Everyone raced well Saturday, and if one kid had an off day, another stepped up and helped out."

NORTH MANCHESTER -- The struggles continued for the Manchester Squire football team as they dropped to 0-7 and 0-5 in the Three Rivers Conference after a 35-0 loss to Whitko Friday night.
 
With a methodical, up-the-middle offense and a stifling defense, Whitko slowly ran away from the Squires on the Wildcats' Homecoming and Senior Night.
 
Manchester started the game with momentum after Quentin Moore recovered a fumble on Whitko's second play from scrimmage.
