Simon Heys And Morgan Walsh Win At Finish Timing Classic


Simon Heys and Morgan Walsh scored emphatic wins at Saturday's Finish Timing XC Classic which was hosted by Wilmington College.  

Heys posted an Ohio No. 21 time of 16:19.70 on route to his first place finish.  The Wilmington senior showed a dramatic improvement from his 2018 debut the weekend prior where he ran 17:06.20 for seventh place in the DII contest at the OHSAA Early Season Invitational

Heys was eleven seconds ahead of the race's runner-up and he just missed achieving a new pr.  His personal best is 16:19.35 from the Regional Troy meet during his junior year.  

 

           Morgan Walsh took a 39 second win at the Finish Timing XC Classic.  

Morgan Walsh secured the win due to her Ohio No. 24 time of 19:12.30.  Similar to Heys, Walsh made a big jump from her season opening result at the Early Invite.  In Hebron, Walsh ran 19:56.60 for sixteenth place in the Division I race.  

The West Clermont senior worked by herself up front to earn the first race win of her high school career.  Walsh is a two-time State Championship qualifier and owns a pr of 18:49.00.
