APRIL 12, 2018 WEEKLYNEWS.NET - 978-532-5880 9 Sports Manning honors dad in marathon COURTESY PHOTO Bobby Manning is running the marathon in memory of his father, Bob. By Anne Marie Tobin PEABODY — Peabody resident Bobby Manning is on a mission. The 20-year old Syracuse University sophomore will hit the streets Marathon Monday in the most important race of his career, the 122nd Boston Marathon. Manning is running as a member of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center marathon team in honor of his father, Bob Manning, who lost a brave battle with leukemia in May, 2017. For Manning, the race is more than just a 26.2 mile trek. “This is my life mission at the moment, securing $7,500 to benefit the Beth Israel Cancer Center,” said Manning. “That’s where my dad received care and being able to give back for their generosity and care is of utmost important for me to feel like something good is coming out of the tragedy I’ve dealt with.” Manning said he started thinking seriously after his cousin, Anthony Gill, suggested it. “The night my father died, he came over and suggested it,” Manning said. “I initially said, yeah, yeah, yeah, because he is always throwing ideas at me, then a couple of months or so later it dawned on me that I should run.” Manning started training on his own last summer while waiting to find a charity that would accept him. He then followed the official marathon training program once he went back to Syracuse. His training consists of 5-6 mile weekday runs with two sprinting workouts that include runs of 800 to a mile. On weekends, he runs 10-11 miles. Last November he competed in his first half-marathon in Peabody. “At school, there are a ton of hills, so that helped me get in decent shape, then a friend told me about the Peabody race, so I ran that and finished in 2:05,” he said. “There were only one or two runners in my age division (18-19), so I was surprised when I heard my name called as the winner, but technically I guess I was,” he joked. Manning was a sprinter at Peabody High where he was an honor roll student. His real passion, however, is sports journalism. He developed a significant online presence while in high school, partnering with fellow journalists on and BaseballEssentials. com, two up-and-coming media outlets. His resume, while only a senior in high school read more like a 30-year seasoned reporter. He was a regular contributor to, opining on Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins. He also wrote and helped bring The Tanners Times, Peabody High’s newspaper into the modern world by adding an online version. A story he wrote on Ichiro Suzuki’s 4,000 career hit was even published in the Tucson Citizen. He was a Friday night press box regular at Tanners’ football games, alongside the Peabody Access Television broadcast team of play-by-play announcer Lou Cersosimo and color analyst John Goulos, oftentimes joining the duo on the air with halftime commentary. AND he was a special contributor to the Peabody Weekly News, writing on all things football, track and just about anything else relating to the Peabody sports world. All of this before the age of 18. At Syracuse, Manning attends the S. I. Newhouse School of Communications and is a sports reporter for the Daily Orange. He has written sports stories that intersect with natural disaster and life struggles and helped create The Village, a dynamic and visual social media platform on Instagram that showcases people’s talents and perspectives on life. Manning works at CLNS Media as well, hosting both The Banners Broadcast and The Bobcast. Since 2016, he has been a Banners Broadcast producer host for SBNation’s Manning says his original goal had been to run the race in 3:45, but a recent injury has caused him to back off a bit. “I’ve had to cut back the last few weeks because of inflammation in my knee, so I’m hoping for something around 4:30-4:45,” he said. “I definitely overtrained, but it’s so hard to back off because you want to be ready.” To date, Manning has raised approximately 88 percent of his pledge goal of $7,500. But there is still plenty of time to help Manning reach his goal. To make a donation or for more information about team BIDMC, visit Manning’s personal pledge page at https://www. bobbymanning1. Manning said his inspiration comes from his mother, Patricia and sister, Ann, a junior at Peabody High. “She is a nurse manager at Beverly Hospital and all through my father’s illness she was working and taking care of my sister Ann and then spending the nights at the hospital, so it was all day, 24 hours a day for her,” he said. “She did everything to keep out family together, so this is going to be very special for all of us. Running this race is our chance to come together again as it will be nearly a year to the day since my father died. “My sister ran a leukemia fundraiser with her volleyball team last fall, so now it’s my turn. The extra meaning for me will be the cheering as I get closer and closer to Boston, to see places like Fenway Park will give me the push to finish. It’s going to be an emotional day for all of us, but one thing I know, I will be celebrating when I cross the finish line.” And yes, in case you are wondering, Manning says there will be a party that night, “for sure.” “This race is a celebration of the great year we had in spite of all the adversity with our family, I don’t say we lost the battle because we had so many great years with my father and we made the best of what we had this past year and I am grateful for that.” Swim coach’s trophy named for Cara Buckwell By Anne Marie Tobin NATICK — At the Eastern Massachusetts Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association’s annual banquet Sunday night at the Natick Elks Club, the highlight of the evening was the announcement that the Girls North Coach Award has a new name — the Cara Buckwell Award. Buckwell, the former Bishop Fenwick swim coach, was a swimming standout and captain at Fenwick. She attended the University of Maryland, Baltimore, a top Division 1 program, on a swimming scholarship and served as team captain her senior year. After graduating in 2005, she coached at the Melrose YMCA and landed back at Fenwick, where she led the team to undefeated seasons in her last three years, earning Boston Globe Division 2 Girls Swim Coach of the Year honors in 2016. She was diagnosed in March of 2017 with stage four lung cancer and passed away in July. The recipient of the first Cara Buckwell Award is Concord-Carlisle swim coach Matt Goldberg, the Concord Carlisle Girls Varsity Coach. “The banquet also raises money through raffles of donated items which is donated to a cause close to the swimming community,” said Fenwick coach Kiersten DeWyngaert. “This year they decided to donate the money raised the the Cara Buckwell Fund, which her family set up for Cara’s daughter and for organ donation.” PHOTO | KIERSTEN DEWYNGAERT From left, Debbie Surface, Deborah Lee Surface, Rich Fuller, Kiersten DeWyngaert, Ann Linehan and Jim Linehan at the Eastern Mass. swimming coaches’ banquet Sunday.
