Volunteer Opportunities

Hello Penn Manor VARSITY Cross Country families,

It was nice to have so many families come together on Sunday to celebrate the season (even if it was a little dark!). Doug and I were extremely touched by your generous gift and we will get plenty of use out the table next year. Many, many thanks!

We are looking for volunteers (athletes and parents) to help at the annual Millersville Turkey Trot, held on Thanksgiving morning, November 24th from 7:15-10:30 (at the latest). This is a fundraiser for our Booster Club and one of the ways we are able to give back to the community. Students can also earn service hours. If you would like to help, please email me at andrea.kramer@pennmanor.net.

There is still a need for Toys for Tots volunteers, as well. You can signup directly at the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C084CABAE2EA5FB6-toys

Other Notes: I will send updates regarding Winter Track news once it’s passed on to me.

Thank you and GO COMETS!!!

District Results!

Hello Penn Manor VARSITY Cross Country families,

What a day at Districts!

Congratulations to Kaleb Kabakjian, who came across the finish line in 21st place with a season best time of 16:14. He has earned an individual spot to race at the PIAA State Championships in Hershey next Saturday. We know he is ready for this next level of competition. Way to go, Kaleb!

Our remaining boys team, four of whom made their first appearance at the District meet, are Tristan Weaver, Carter Vinson, Aidan Gerlach, Jack Hightower, Jack Steele, and Chase Bearden. The invaluable experience and season PR’s from yesterday’s race will propel them forward to a return trip next season. We are so proud of all of you!

Senior, Bethany Hetrick, represented the girls team with a strong, gutsy effort in her first trip to the District meet. It took tremendous effort to earn this opportunity. Great job, Bethany!

Full results from yesterday’s meet can be found at: www.macfat.net

Thank you to all of the teammates, family, and friends who have been with us every step of the way this season!
