Cross Country Seniors Celebrated

The cross country team celebrated their senior Hurricanes after a race against Villa Joe on Wednesday, October 6. Each senior was honored with a poster and tribute from underclassmen, and the runners and their mothers were presented with flowers.

Coach Patty Heppelmann, also a parent of senior Katrina Heppelmann, reported that the varsity team ran in the Paul Short Invitational  Friday, October 1. Charlotte Fritz was 1st for Villa and top 50 out of 296 runners, running under 21 minutes. Mary Cate Doughty was 2nd for the team and Maddie Kiester was third and set a new lifetime PR. Runners included Anna Bagley, Talia Davidson, Caroline Bell, Katrina Heppelmann, and Maddie Borzillo.

“We have two more league meets before we compete at League Champs in a couple of weeks,” Patty said. “Way to Go Villa XC!”
