After losing their top two runners to graduation and one returning runner to injury, the girls varsity cross country team still came in 4th overall at a very competitive Providence Invite.  Junior Captain Lexi Neiling was the first Lady Mav to cross the finish line in 4th place with a 20:01.  Caroline McDonough 16th (20:44), Alex Dawson 17th (20:45) and Lauren Bennett 19th (20:50) were the next three in for the team, followed by Rachel Neiling 34th (21:31), Catriona Ewing 40th (21:49) and Renee Anderson 51st (22:18). There were 163 runners in this race.  JV runner Renee Kulik placed 5th overall (21:32) earning a medal with a time fast enough to break into the varsity top seven. Varsity girls results

The boys team ran without one returning varsity runner today but still managed to pull themselves up from last year's 16th place to 7th place this year as a team.  Senior Captain Eric Lawson was first in for the team in 28th place with a 17:28.  Daniel Weekes was 32nd place with a 17:43.  Teddy Buckner 48th (18:06) followed along with  Graham Harris 79th (18:42), Kris Lacer 80th (18:43), Tyler Pommerenke 97th (19:12), JD Donoso 122nd (19:49), Michael Moore 125th (19:56), Austin Hood 126th (19:56), and Brendan Cohen (20:12).
