WILMINGTON — The top county runners had a strong finish Saturday in the SBAAC Cross Country Championship varsity girls race at Wilmington College.
Wilmington’s Taylor Noszka hit the line first for county runners, placing fifth in a personal best time of 20:55.
But Clinton-Massie’s Malea Beam was close behind in 20:59 and Noszka’s teammate Madilyn Brausch was just behind her in 21:06.
As a team, Wilmington was fourth overall, third in the American Division. Mia Hollingsworth also had a PR for the Lady Hurricane runners.
Runners in both divisions competed in the same race with individual honors separated after competition was complete.
East Clinton’s Molly Seabaugh was 14th overall, sixth among National Division runners in 21:52.19.
“We will not be graduating any runners this year so with their return and some additions we look to change our league outcome next year,” Simmons said.
