SCRANTON, Pa. — They're shipping off to Shippensburg.
Cheers and a marching band were on hand as a member of West Scranton High School's track and field team left for the state championship finals.
Everyone came out to cheer on Colin Manley Thursday morning before classes started, escorted by his teammates who medaled at the District 2 championship meet last week. Manley is making the trek down to Shippensburg University to compete in the state finals.
Manley's sister was there as well, beaming with pride.
"It's amazing," Cailyn Manley said. "I've been proud of him since day one that he started, and it's just amazing to see how far he's come."
The PIAA track and field competition will take place this weekend in southern Pennsylvania. Athletes from districts all over northeastern and central Pennsylvania will compete.
