Cross Country Opens Season with a Win

The Cross Country team had its first win on Wednesday, October 14, versus Gwynedd Mercy Academy. Sophomore Charlotte Fritz came in first for Villa and 3rd overall, followed by many of her teammates close behind for a strong team win. The first 5 girls for each team tied at 28 points, with Villa’s 6th runner, freshman Avery Reigner, breaking the tie for the win.

“With only 12 runners allowed at each race, we are looking forward to having more of our team race next Wednesday against St. Basils,” said coach Patty Heppelmann. “We began summer training June 9th, and are grateful to have the opportunity to compete against a tough opponent. Go Villa!!!”
