Freshman Girls Shine at XC Battle of Atlanta

Freshman Girls Shine at XC Battle of Atlanta
The Girls Cross Country team sent an abbreviated squad (SAT's, illness, injury) to the Saucony Battle of Atlanta race on Saturday, August 26, 2017. The small, yet enthusiastic, harriers traveled to Hampton to run the Nash Farm Battlefield course.
 
Freshmen Elle Mezzio, Aubrey Charon, and Allison Leffler represented the Lady Raiders in the Varsity race. Mezzio, first in for the Lady Raiders, sorted the course with a time of 20:37 to finish 16th overall. The JV finished 14th out of 26 teams with Junior Shreya Rekapalli and Sophomore Sharon Lim leading the team. 
 
Head Coach Isaac Seals really liked the spirit of the team, "We had a lot of girls missing, but we were loud and supportive out there. This team is really close-knit and that makes them all want to perform well for each other. And Mezzio proved today that she is ready for the big races; I think she is going to surprise a lot of runners this year."
 
The Lady Raiders are not competing Labor Day weekend. The next event on the schedule is the Coach Benson Double-Dip at Marist on Saturday, September 9
