Newnan used its depth to hold off Area 2-7A rival East Coweta to claim hold of the annual Coweta Cup trophy on Saturday at Lee Middle School.

The Cougars had all five scorers in the top-10 finishers led by Bo Palmer’s second-place finish.

East Coweta’s Kyle Harkabus kept his hold of the boys individual title in 16:01, as did Lady Indians sophomore Shannon Ferry in 20:14 while both at least 30 seconds ahead of the field.

Newnan’s girls, however, earned a 1-point victory in the team standings over ECHS with four of the top 10 finishers led by Grace Smith in third.

Northgate sophomore Mia Griswold finished runner-up to Ferry among girls, while Davis McIntire and William Stephens had top-10 efforts for the Vikings.
