“Though nerves were on edge, Victoria Lee (I) and Danielle Frederick (I) navigated the 3.1 miles with ease, finishing fourth and fifth out of a field of 90 girls,” said Head Coach Scott Huntoon. “Maddie Warwick (III) finished third for the team and had one of her best races of the season. She began the race in the top 20 and steadily advanced to capture 11th place.”

Scott says Lindsay Atkeson (II) pushed through fatigue to cross the finish line in 18th place.

“In her first ISL Championship, she gave our team a critical edge over third place Middlesex,” says Scott.

Emily Bosworth (IV) had an impressive second half of the race and “battled all the way” to finish 35th.

Kailey Buxbaum (II) and Ali Edwards (II) completed the varsity squad by finishing 42nd and 49th. “Kailey and Ali have improved throughout the season and are poised to be true forces next fall,” says Scott.
The JV girls also had an outstanding day and finished fourth out of 12 teams. Kayla Jang (III) jumped to the front of the pack early in the race and held her ground for a solid 12th place finish. In her first ISL race, Kat Kulke (II) fought her way to a top 20 spot by pushing through a grueling hill and crossing the finish line in 16th place. Chloe Warren (I), Claire Russell (III) and Sarah Anderson (II) comprised an impressive middle pack and finished 22nd, 23rd and 25th.
