Coaching Announcement!

Hello Penn Manor Jr. High Cross Country families,

I am very excited to announce Brooke Magni as the new Jr. High Head Cross Country Coach. She brings plenty of coaching and running experience to the program. I know the girls and boys will thrive under her direction with the help of Coach Taylour. WELCOME COACH BROOKE!

Meet Coach Brooke (Magni):

Brooke has been a lifelong runner, starting her career at Warwick High School in the late 90’s.  She was a three time LL league XC all star and academic all star during High School, and clocked over five course records during her tenure.  Brooke went on to run on various amateur teams in the Lancaster County area in dozens of road races per year.  She is a seven time marathon finisher, which includes two Boston Marathon finishes.  


Outside of time on the road, trails, and track, Brooke is a mom of two boys (Carter, 13 and Cameron 8), two dogs (Zoey and Ellie Mae), and partner to her husband, Frank.  She has an undergraduate degree in Psychology, and a Master’s degree in Sports Management- both from Millersville University.  She has worked in a variety of nonprofit positions since 2016 and is currently the Executive Director of Lancaster Creative Reuse.


“We are looking forward to a great 2022 XC season and can’t wait to see you all soon!”

Coach Brooke can be reached at: brooke.magni@gmail.com

Jr. High Cross Country Update

Hello Penn Manor Jr. High Cross Country families,

I wanted to make you aware of some changes coming to our program. With Coach Ecker’s retirement, I will now be helping to oversee the Varsity Cross Country program. It was not an easy decision, but it is one that will still afford me plenty of opportunities to watch the Jr. High Boy’s and Girl’s teams grow and compete throughout the season. Each and every team member has played an important role in demonstrating what it meant to represent Penn Manor Athletics and I am very proud of what we accomplished in the last four years! Your hard work and dedication was unsurpassed and the value of what it meant to be part of a team was always evident in your interactions with one another. 

For those of you entering 9th grade, I am eager to see you attend Varsity summer practices (information is in the Penn Manor Varsity Cross Country link at the top of the page). For those of you still running for the Jr. High team, our paths will cross many times throughout the season and I will be cheering for you all the way!

An announcement will be coming soon for my replacement and Coach Taylour will remain as the Assistant and be a huge help to your new coach. 2022 will be a GREAT season under their guidance! In the meantime if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at andrea.kramer@pennmanor.net

Thank you and GO COMETS!!!

NOTE: RECRUITMENT FOR FALL SPORTS WILL BE HELD AT MANOR MIDDLE ON 5/5 AND MARTICVILLE ON 5/12. INFORMATION WILL BE SENT TO THE SCHOOLS FOR DISTRIBUTION.

Community Service Opportunities

Hello Penn Manor Jr. High Cross Country families,

Below is a description of an upcoming service opportunity at the Manor Market in Millersville. If you are interested, please contact Ruth at: manormarket@immerse-us.com. This is voluntary. If you need to earn community service hours, please bring your papers for her to sign and make sure to wear one of your PMXC shirts!

Manor Market is a local farmer’s/artisan market in Millersville!  There are vendors selling all kinds of crafts, produce, flowers, baked goods and hot food. There is also live music at each event.   We are held the second Saturday of the month (April through November) from 9am-1pm.  Since it is a pop-up event, there are things to set-up before and after Market (tables, chairs, trash cans, signs).  Vendors begin set-up at 7:30am (as customers begin arriving at 8:30), and tear-down happens at 1pm.  Volunteers are needed from 7:30-8:30 and again from 1:00pm-1:30pm.  You can check us out on Facebook and Instagram at: manormarketinmillersville.”
