Cross Country teams flourish at home

The Windham Cross Country boys and girls teams did very well at their only home meet of the season last Friday.

“We were happy to host South Portland, Marshwood, and Cheverus XC teams last Friday.  Our home course is known in the conference as a challenging yet rewarding course to finish on.  The boys race was loaded with approximately 70 runners and it was a very competitive field.  Our boys all ran their assignments very well on Friday and were able to learn a lot from their race as well as take the win.  They are a fit, unified, and very dedicated group of athletes in pursuit of some respectable goals and are putting the efforts, time, and focus in to achieve them for WHSXC,” said coach Jeff Riddle.

“The surprise of the meet, which may be a game changer for the WHSXC girls season results, was junior Kiana Clark’s breakthrough moment as she went from our ninth place finisher earlier this season to our third place finisher at our home last Friday, and she did that with ease.  The girls are being led this season by captains Joelle Bockus, Eliza Bennett, Sierra Yost and McKenzie Pepin.  Great things still to come from the girls team as they improve weekly, pack run, and keep calm when others may panic. Stay tuned,” said Riddle.
