Cross Country Defeats St. Basil

Congratulations to Villa’s XC team on their win against St. Basil’s Academy on Wednesday. Charlotte Fritz, Caroline Bell, and Christina Traficanti placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, helping the team win by keeping each other in sight, ensuring a low score.

Coach Patty Heppelmann said, “Senior captain Fiona Diskin ran strong and will be missed greatly as she ends her season later this week. Quite a few teammates raced their first cross country race: Peyton Kintzley, Natalie Bacallao, Maddie Borzillo, and Lucy Figg. Great job to all of you and the whole team for another strong showing. We will be racing on Saturday against Merion Mercy and Villa Joe. Go Villa!”
