Juniors Mia Chesbrough (66th, 25:08.2) and Madeline McGreevy (67th, 28:08.8) finished sixth and seventh for the Lakers, displacing numerous other runners to boost the Lakers’ position in the overall Varsity scoring.Sophomore Mary Williams (25:08.9) led the Lakers’ junior varsity team to a second place finish behind Liverpool. Laura Fitzgerald (26:00), Melanie Michael (26:07), Grace Dolan (26:14), Emma Steinberg (26:58) and Jenna Steinberg (27:09) rounded out the Laker scorers in the JV race with Maggie Rowles, Alyson Woolbert and Sedona Millard also running well.The VVS meet featured a merged competition with all runners racing together, but finishers one to seven from each team scoring in the Varsity standings and runners eight and up counting toward the team’s JV race score. Cazenovia’s outstanding finish in the JV race is a great early-season indicator of the team’s depth.The meet was strong start to the Lakers’ 2019 campaign as they will try to follow up on their success from last fall when they finished undefeated in the regular season and earned the OHSL Liberty-National title. Cazenovia will try to replicate their success in the league while also striving to get back into the winner’s circle in sectional competition, which they last captured in 2015.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Cazenoviagirls cross country
