A humid morning at Fort St. Clair park turned into a muddy afternoon, but our teams responded with strong performances. In the opening race the Varsity Girls finished second among fifteen teams--only state-ranked Oakwood edged us out by a point. Whitley Elsass, Riley Bahr, Tiffany Chen, Katy Vanatsky, and Lily Parker all earned medals with top twenty finishes. The boys used a strong pack performance, with the first five runners closely bunched through much of the race, on their way to earning sixth of seventeen teams. Moreover, the boys moved ahead of several competitors who defeated them at Xavier on 9/3. Storms arrived for the JV races, yet a number of runners turned in season best times. Among the biggest improvements were Spencer Shore, Ian Denney, and Lydia Groff who all cut multiple minutes off previous races.
