The Manchester cross country teams continue their strong seasons with the girls' team finishing second at the Culver Academies Sectional, advancing to regional as a team, while the boys' team turning in a sixth place finish, but have six runners advancing to regional as individuals.
 
"I'm very pleased with how our girls' team ran," Manchester coach Jody Sarber said. "For the boys, we would have much rather advanced as a team, but we took six of the top individual spots, which is excellent. We were happy to get so many boys through to regional."
