Simon Heys had his sophomore season at Wilmington College cancelled by the pandemic.

Rest assured his running was not.

The Wilmington High School graduate is the top runner for the Quakers as he enters his junior year. As a freshman, Heys was 15th in the OAC Championship race.

Ron Combs is in his 25th season as the WC cross country coach. He is assisted by Pierce Burnam, Tony Goodrich, Tristen Durr and Kyle Wolf.

Wilmington College opens its season Wednesday at the Ohio Wesleyan Invitational.

Other local runners on the men’s team include sophomore Tyler Parks (WHS), sophomore Aidan Henson (East Clinton) as well as Leesburg Fairfield graduates and WC freshmen Cohen Frost, Blake Haines and Brett Haines.

For the WC women, freshman Skye Carpenter (WHS), sophomore AJ Houseman (Clinton-Massie), junior Savannah Rhodes (Blanchester) and sophomore Jordan Snarr (WHS)
