Girls’ cross country, 5-6, had a strong season, according to senior Becca Trainer, a captain with seniors Allie Phillips, Rosie Sokolov and Melissa Weikart.
“We had a lot of new members on the team that improved throughout the season and were very impressive,” Trainer said.
The highlight of the season was beating Walpole, Trainer said. “It was a difficult obstacle.”
Phillips, Trainer and juniors Meghan Bellerose, Julia Schiantarelli and Kaylee Spitaels qualified to compete in Division I Class A this year.
“This team competed against some of the best teams in the State, and I’m proud that they were a quality team that would challenge all opponents,” coach Brandon Mogayzel said.
Sophomore Evelyn Heffernan also advanced to All-States. Heffernan and Trainer were named Bay State Conference all-stars.
Next year’s captains will be Bellerose, Spitaels and juniors Caroline Loftus and Julia Schlossman.
