NTL CROSS-COUNTRY: WYALUSING POSTS ANOTHER STRONG SEASON
(2022-11-20)Northern Tier Sports Report
Once again Wyalusing put together another strong cross-country season for both teams.
The girls were the second best team in the NTL, losing only to their division champions NEB, while also taking second at districts to continue their string of PIAA Championship appearances.
Lone senior Kayla Beebe led the Rams throughout the season, with a top 10 finish at districts, and a top 60 finish at states.
Freshman Megan King was their number two all season, their top runner at districts, and finished in the top 100 in her first state meet.
Their next four - Laina Beebe, Kassandra Kerin, Kira Allen, and freshman Riley Porter - all filled in during the season in the 3-through-5 scoring spots, give the Rams some strong depth.
Five of their top six runners will return next season, giving them a strong core to extend their team run to states to five, and maybe even give NEB a run in both the league and district.
The Wyalusing boys didn’t quite have as strong a season, but still performed well.
They had three runners make states - sophomore Trennan Tewksbury, and seniors Jeremy Clauser and Brody Fuhrey.
Their team was third at districts, just nine points behind Towanda for the second place spot, and a berth to states.
Tewksbury and Clauser ran amongst the top in the NTL all season, while Fuhrey came on late to give them a big lift.
Looking ahead to next year they will need to replace five of their top seven - Clauser, Fuhrey, Clayton Petlock, Jake Caplan, and Ethan Leis - though Tewksbury and Landen Kaufmann give them a strong twosome to build around.
They have some solid junior high runners coming, but they might have to get some internal improvement in the mean time.
