Penn Manor's Graham Thomas ran to the win at the Lancaster-Lebanon League Championships, held on Tuesday afternoon at Ephrata Middle School. Only the boys competed on Tuesday with the girls set to run on Wednesday.
Thomas made a decisive move just after the mile mark and extended his lead almost immediately, pulling away from a talented L-L League field. Thomas went 16:07 for the win, improving two spots from his third place finish last year.
Aidan Hodge, a sophomore, placed second in 16:31 to lead the way for the team champions from Hempfield. JP McCaskey's Stephen Schousen was third in 16:34 and Manheim Township's Tyler Stevens was fourth in 16:37.
Cedar Crest, the 2019 league champs, took second with 61 points, led by Ryan Wolfe's fifth place run in 16:41. Both Hempfield and Cedar Crest will advance to the PIAA District 3 Championships in a week in a half.
