The beginning of the season appeared hopeful for the boys and girls cross country teams, as the girls aimed to defend their NEC championship title and the boys began to rebuild. But a new season has brought new challenges.

With a new coach- the third new cross country coach this year’s seniors have seen in their GHS careers- change was inevitable.

Yet the hope for these undefeated successes were not rendered. The mid season report for the girls team has contained ample wins with a record of 4-2 while the boys have had little success with a record of 1-5.

As for runners in particular, senior Christina Jones and junior Leah Rudolph have run side by side for the duration of the season, scoring first and second place at every meet. Behind them are runners Sarah Whitmore, Aiden Cunningham, and Lindsey Parisi.

“All of our girls are strong runners,” said Head Coach Matt Carpenter.

As for the boys team, senior Kory Hurd has lead the pack until his recent knee injury caused him to walk the finish in last Tuesday’s meet. Following close behind is junior Tyler Cilluffo, sophomore Cody Clifford, and freshman Jack Fernandes.

Captains have finally been announced, Kory Hurd as the boys’ captain and Lindsey Parisi as the girls’ captain.

“It’s been a tough season for the girls, but we’re seeing what really matters, improvements. Improvements in both our race times and our physical capabilities” said the girls captain.

The team is looking forward to their last dual meet today in Ravenswood Park, the last dual meet ever for the five seniors on the team.
