Girls’ XC Flies at Westhampton Beach Invite

On Thursday 10/7 the girls cross country team enjoyed some great individual performances and a solid team showing at the Westhampton Beach Invitational.  2 of our girls placed in the top 25 in a race that included over 100 competitors and the team finished 5th out of 11 teams, some of which were from larger classes.  Coach Heidi Nathan was very pleased with the results:

It was a gorgeous day and 5 of the girls ran about a minute or more faster on the course than they did a little over 2 weeks earlier.  We had 3 girls PR in this 5k race.  T-shirts were awarded to the top group of finishers, which 6 out of 7 of the varsity squad received for this day.  The girls did fabulous and continue to work at pulling each other along to faster times together.  I am very proud of how together they are pushing their speed and endurance to greater limits.

Here is how our girls fared:

  • 13. Margot Rashba | 21:58.86 (0:36 PR)
  • 24. Kathy Kim | 23:09.55  (0:08 PR)
  • 28. Ayana Aaron | 23:22.00
  • 29. Maria Paz Valenzuela | 23:31.41 (0:36 PR)
  • 68. Aileen Catapano | 26:32.23
  • 84. Kriupa Samson | 28:35.16
  • 90. Colleen Higgins | 29:37.64
