SA Girls finish 4th in New England...

On a chilly and brisk day for racing, the lady Harriers took to the line and put in outstanding performances. The course at Berkshire was the hardest of the year for our runners but incredibly, almost all the Suffield girls put in season or lifetime best performances. The extensive hot weather training and then the quick drop in temperatures played in their favor. In the first race of the day, Jenna Daly '21 ran a gutsy race over the distance, swapping places with a swarm of girls and eventually streaked in at 13. Emma Krasemann '21 left her best race for last and sprinted in to grab 17th. Teammate Madi McCreesh '18th passed several in the final 200 meters to finish just behind Emma. The three Harriers earned All New England accolades for their performances in the top 20 and are invited to run in the NEPSTA All Star race next weekend. Becca Bauer '20 posted her fastest race of the year by nearly a minute and fought nausea and cramping, particularly in the final 600 meters, to end in dramatic fashion. Teammate Lexi Roberts '20 was three seconds behind and ran an amazing lifetime and season PR. Megan Alberding '19 in a flashy new pair of socks, recorded her season PR after putting in a dramatic kick. Izzy Dutranoit '19 fought hard over the distance and ended in fine fashion. One hour later and perhaps two degrees cooler, the JV runners took to the line. Caroline Walsh '20 ran a fast, swift race and grabbed 2nd, and posted a lifetime and season PR. It was an amazing, smart race to watch unfold. Gabriella Tosone '20 overcame injury and cold to snag 17th. Both girls earned individual recognition for their strong races. Sarah Kurbanov '21 paced a swift race to come in the top 45 and senior Katherine Kelley smashed her lifetime PR, running in the 25s. Olivia Alfano '19 ran her season best with Carlin Molander '18 fast on her heels. Carlin ran 90 seconds faster than ever before. It was a fabulous day of racing. Thanks to the many parents who came to cheer and bring treats on this final day of the season.
