L-L Cross Country Championships

Cedar Crest’s Gwyneth Young, front, and Elizabethtown’s Katie Locker, lead the pack at the 1 mile point, during the Lancaster-Lebanon League Girls Cross Country Championships at Ephrata Middle school Tuesday October 15, 2019.

The Lancaster-Lebanon League cross country all-stars were honored at an end-of-season banquet earlier this week, Nov. 5, at Double Tree Resort.

Eight runners were named first-team all-stars and another eight runners were named second-team all-stars for each of the league’s two sections. The all-stars are determined by the average finish of each runner, with the requirement of a runner having participated in all five league races.

Cedar Crest’s Gwyneth Young was named the L-L girls Runner of the Year. Young won the L-L girls championship race before placing second at the District 3-3A meet and seventh at the PIAA 3A meet.

Northern Lebanon’s Gage Krall was named the L-L boys Runner of the Year. Krall won the L-L boys championship race before placing fourth at the District 3-2A meet and eighth at the PIAA 2A meet.

Coach of the Year awards were also handed out to Hempfield’s Curt Rogers (Section One girls), Donegal’s Matthew Werner (Section Two girls), Cedar Crest’s Brandon Risser (Section One boys) and Lampeter-Strasburg’s Mari Cunningham (Section Two boys).
