Villa Maria’s cross country team made a strong showing at the PIAA District 1 championship meet at Lehigh University, finishing in second place, only one point behind winner Villa Joe. Two runners, Sarah Raubenheimer, who finished 4th, and Hope Brown, who finished 5th, qualified to advance to the state championship on Saturday, November 4, at Hershey. The Hurricanes owe their second place showing to strong performances from many runners. Katie Regan was 9th, Julia Ayres was 11th, Kira Buchler was 13th, and Caroline Corr was 26th.
The team and their families enjoyed the championship meet with a group tailgate and beautiful weather. Congratulations on a great season, and good luck to Sarah and Hope!
