Girls Cross Country Results 2020

On a day with weather to match yesterday’s boys’ championship, the girls contest was more hotly contested in both the individual finish and the team scoring.

Alyssa Fedorshak of Ephrata crossed the line first in 19:29, just 3 seconds ahead of runner up Anna Martin of Warwick.  Martin was the first of 4 Warriors in the top 20, and with the 5th scorer in 25th overall, it was enough to edge McCaskey by one point for the team title.
