Win 15-31
Score/ Result: 15- 31+ Today was a special opportunity for us, as it was our last day racing at home as a team. Specifically, it was the last time our Seniors would race at Taft during their high school career. With this, emotions were high but so were our spirits! Despite the warm temperature being close to the 80's, along with some problematic wind in areas, the Rhinos ran competitively and fiercely. Taft lead from the start with Junior, Charlotte Murphy crossing the line first in (20:13). Senior, Rina Kurihara followed quickly behind with (20:30). Then came Senior, Kate Cicchetti (21:30) for third place, with Senior, Sydney Grogean (21:48) with a strong finish for fourth. Our third pack was led by Senior, Brooke Wilcox (22:14), who ran with Freshman, Maya Woodhall, running competitively throughout the race to finish in sixth place (22:36). Then came Freshman, Vi Lapham kicking in at (24:05) for 8th place. Striding hard towards the finish after was Junior, Tatsha Kumthampinij who finished in (24:22.77), who smashed her personal course record by nearly 30 seconds! Our last and final pack worked together, stride for stride, with Eleanor Lemon (FR) 26:27.81, Andrea Poon (FR) 26:28.24, and Molly Wynne (JR) 26:29.61. Both Eleanor and Andrea also received big PR's! We thank Kent for coming out and competing, and we look forward to racing them again next weekend at the Founders Meet!
