On October 18th, Blue Wave Girl’s Cross Country went to Wickham Park in New Canaan, CT, to participate in FCIACs. The Junior Varsity course was 4000 meters, or 2.5 miles. The course was revised due to muddy grounds from the rain. Out of 13 teams, Darien placed 3rd, with 120 points; New Canaan received 2nd place with 86 points; Ridgefield won with 52 points.

“Darien did very well compared to the boy’s team. Everyone tried very well on their last race, which is something I’m proud of” Dempsey said.
Darien’s top seven runners will attend CIACs on October 26th at Wickham Park. We wish the team the best of luck!
