Boys Middle School Cross Country · Girls Middle School Cross Country Third at Knightstown

  Place Points
New Castle High School 3rd 53

The girl Trojans had four new faces in their top seven finishers as they opened the season at Knightstown. The young team fell to Pendleton (Conference Champions last year) and Mt. Vernon (fourth in Conference), but had some impressive results for many first time runners. Ella Garvin, in her first xc meet, took runner-up honors in 12:54 just seven seconds off the winner from Pendleton. Third year veteran Lydia Harvey was eighth, a much improved start from last year’s first race. Mireya Guerrero moved up throughout the race to finish 12th. Sixth grader Emily Grow took 15th, one spot ahead of Emma Hart, who came on strong at the end. Sixth grader Audra Cornettt and first year xc member Sakagewea Watson rounded out the team’s top seven. Congratulations to the entire team on finishing their first meet.
