It was a solid start to the season for the Girls Cross Country team as they came away with a 3rd place finish out of 15 teams at Saturday's Plainfield Relays. Running in pairs, with each partner covering 3 miles, the girls were lead by the 2nd place overall pair of Brooke Dixon and Gabrielle Bische, who averaged a fantastic 6:01 per mile for the 6 mile race. Also medaling as a top 10 pair were Ali Ray and Kylee Van Ness in 9th place! Rounding out the scoring with a great race of their own were Faye Jessup and Sophie Britton in 17th place. Following close behind with impressive finishes were the pairs of Alexis Boccone with Carly Altier and Abbie Aldridge with Anna Boone.
The JV girls also had a nice morning as they raced a 2 mile course and also finished in 3rd place. Leading the charge was Sarah Pitts in 6th place overall with a time of 13:45 followed by Isabella Maihofer, Irene Amalaraj, Lindsay Huston, and Hannah Tippets. Great job to all the girls!
