Kate Dempsey

On Friday, October 26th, the Girls Cross Country team ran at CIAC State Class L Meet at Wickham Park. The runners picked for the state meet were the top 7 best on the team. The race, which was early in the morning at 9:45 a.m., meant that the runners were excused for the whole day in order to attend the race.

The team has seen a significant amount of freshman this year who have started off at the varsity level. First being Mairead Clas who came in sixth place in the FCIACS. The team overall has seen a great season, finishing second in the East Division, only loosing to New Canaan.

“We are super happy with the way we were able to finish this season not only in our individual races but as a team score as well,” says senior Penn Boucher.

The team hopes to qualify for the CIAC State Open at Wickham Park on November 1st, and if they do well there they can expect to go to the New England Meet in New Hampshire on November 10th.
