Girls Cross Country

Cross Country Girls Sneak into Regionals

On October 19, 2013 at Amann’s Reservoir in Galion, Ohio, the girls competed in the first race of the Division III Northwest District Championship. The weather was less than perfect conditions.  It was raining, very windy, and the course was a complete muddy mess from the previous races tearing it up. That did not stop our girls. Our first runner crossing the finish line for the Royals was Ellie Richmond finishing third overall with a time of 20:55.28.  Other finishers for the Royals were: Madi Schiefer (32nd, 23:16.43), Rachel Redolf (36th, 23:52.61), Aryn Copeland, (41st, 24:03.40 ), Sara Hoffman (42nd, 24:07.06 ) and Madison Graham (51st, 24:38.18). The six girls combined for a score of 148 and placed fourth as a team which means they qualified for the last position in the regionals. The last girls team that made it to the regionals was about seven years ago, so its a big accomplishment for our girls cross country team. The seniors thought their high school career was coming to an end, but a new door was opened. The girls are off to Youngstown on Saturday, October 26th to compete in the regional race starting at 11a.m.
