Win 21-38
Score/ Result: 21- 38 What a day for cross country racing! The unusual chilly air paid its annual Autumn visit... just in time for our first race at home! Taft Girls Cross Country opened their season against Miss Porters, winning the race 21-38. Being at home was a special opportunity for us- there are a lot of new faces this year for the Taft girls cross country team. So, hosting the meet helped elevate our girls confidence, which paved the way for some breakout performances. Junior, Charlotte Murphy (19:19) led the Rhinos from the start, where teammates, Rina Kurihara (19:46) and Kate Cicchetti (19:57) quickly followed for second and third place, earning themselves two new personal course records! Senior, Sydney Grogean (21:30) led the next group with freshman, Maya Woodhall (21:47.87) and Vi Lapham (21:59.52), who both also record personal 5k bests. Kicking into the finish a blink after was senior, Brooke Wilcox (22:03), who also smashed her personal course record by nearly two minutes! Sophomore, Estelle Magnan (24:34) led our next group of girls, along with junior Tatsha Kumthampinij (24:51), who both looked strong finishing! Then came sophomore Louisa Prentice (25:15), Farren Camp (26:20), Eleanor Lemon (26:34), Mehar Trehan (26:59.91), Andrea Poon (27:02), Sophia Zhao (28:00), and Bernice Zhang (28:05) to bring it home for the rhinos! Overall, Miss Porters ran a great race and helped push our Rhinos to an exciting start for the xc season!
