OWENSVILLE, Mo. -  Monday was one of New Haven’s best overall performance at the Four Rivers Conference (FRC) Meet, particularly the FRC Champion JV Girls who dominated nearly every event with 10 girls making All-Conference by finishing in the top three in 14 different events, scoring a team total 194 points.  Pacific who came in second scored a team total of 76 points.

It was just a year ago when Seth Schenck, a junior at the time, ran in his first track meet.

Little did anyone know he would go from being a great cross-country runner to the FRC Male Athlete of the year.  Considering the fact in both the 800m and 1600m Schenck was undefeated against teams in the conference and currently holds the best times for both events in Class 1, it was an easy decision for the FRC coaches to select Schenck.
