On Wednesday afternoon, Whitman-Hanson Cross Country hosted Pembroke High School. The heat and humidity may have resulted in slower times, but exciting races resulted between the Whitman-Hanson Boys and the defending D2 State Champion Titans as well as the Panther Girls and the girls from Pembroke.
Whitman-Hanson Junior Samantha Coletti, with a wire-to-wire first place finish over the 5K course in 19:34, downed Pembroke 25-32. Behind Coletti were the Senior Co-Captains Caroline Mulrey (2nd, 20:53), Kelsey Tierney (4th, 21:44) and Megan Concannon (6th, 22:27.) Freshman Nicole Norve (12th, 28:10) rounded out the scoring for the the Whitman Girls.
In the Boys race, Senior Co-Captain Patrick Brett's first varsity victory wasn't enough for the Panthers, who were defeated 22-39. Brett covered the course in 18:00, 13 seconds ahead of a trio of Norwell runners. Junior Sam Evans placed 5th in 18:43. Sophomore Lukas Moscoso (8th, 19:22), Freshman Jack Ryan (12th, 20:32) and Senior Co-Captain Josh Long were the other runners scoring for Whitman-Hanson.
Whitman-Hanson will travel to Plymouth-South for its next meet schedule for September 9.
