From the gun the Wildcats were out to run smarter and faster than last year, and by the finish every runner ran either a personal best or significantly faster than last year at this time. Of the returners, none had run under 30 minutes on this course, and this year, the top 5 all crushed that barrier. 

The Wildcats were led by senior Caroline Campbell who completed the challenging 5,000 Meter course in 25:46, 23 seconds faster than her previous personal record which was run on a much less challenging course last year. 

Second place for the Wildcats was fellow senior Meaghan Rich running 27:37, three minutes faster than this meet last year. Rounding out the top 5 were Lauren Eaddy (29:17), Sarah Margaret Farr (29:34), and Claire Peacock (29:47). 

Kiki Zhou was the sixth Wildcat across the line in 30:18 followed by Caroline Weaver and Mary Rushton Massey, each dropping 5 minutes 30 seconds off their times from last year to finish in 30:45 and 31:01 respectively. 

“I could not be more proud of these girls” said Varsity Cross Country Coach Janelle Branch, “They work hard everyday in practice, and are starting to see results. I look forward to great things from each of them over the rest of the season.” 

The Wildcats will compete next on September 8 at the Augusta Prep Invitational.
