In the girls' race, our athletes ran much more consistent splits, and nearly everyone hit their first-mile target time within a few seconds. Despite the fear of encountering the random, wandering horse on the course, our ladies all cut a significant amount of time off of last week's finishing times. Emily had the biggest improvement from last week, chopping 4:55 off of her race time. Grace improved by 3:39 and Sierra by 2:55. Ashley, Rachel and Nathan all cut over two minutes off of last week's time, and every one of our runners was at least a minute and a half faster this week. Megan ran the first race of her cross country career and had a healthy balance of pride and discomfort as she crossed the line. Whitney, Gina, Rachel, Bethy and Ashley scored in the top 5 for G-A as the girls finished in 5th as a team. Results are on Athletic.net.
