Congratulations to Spencer Brown, Sarah Healy and Mary Lynch for advancing to New England’s. The girls team missed qualifying by 4 points, placing 7th overall.
In order to let the storm pass, CIAC has delayed the boy’s race until 3:30 & girl’s until 4:15PM. CIAC’s site is here
It would help to include the link to vote, and include confirmation of the sisters in case there was any doubt (disclaimer: the photographer had no control over the short one and she claims she has no interest in running….yet)
Up for FCIAC Team of the Week are the WHS Girls XC, winners of the State Class L race yesterday. But they are currently only in 4th place in the voting:
Can the other candidates boast 3 sets of sisters? Doubtful. Do they have as many freshman with braces or have as much fun as our girls? Doubtful. Did the other candidates win a state championship? Nope. We need your vote to put them over the top! Vote here
Today, at Wickham Park in Manchester, the Wilton girls won the Class L race-led by Sarah Healy who placed 2nd overall. The boys placed 13th, led by Spencer Brown who placed 8th.
