Girls XC Recap 9/29

Sophomore Abby Guidry took the gold at the Cy Woods XC Invitational, running a PR of 18:24. Speaking of sophomores, they are doing fabulous this season with Paige Hofstad and Madie Boreman-there are no results out for Hofstad this week but Boreman placed third at the Islander's Splash meet. The meet was listed as a 3 mile course but the times seem more fit for a 5k-Boreman ran 18:42 and she's run sub-18 5ks before, and Jessica Ellis ran an 18:48 which she's run on a 5k course before too. It may just have been a tough course or bad weather (it was raining pretty hard throughout most of Texas). Devin Clark won the race by over 30 seconds, running 17:32 and Kelsie Warren took second with a time of 18:09.

Other meets this weekend include the Northside Invitational, won by Kellee McCann who ran an 18:32, the Metroplex Challenge where Laina Sorenson ran 18:49 and the Giddings Invitational, won by Kristaly Munoz who is also having a great season.

We finally see Natalie Rathjen again at the Colony Cougars Invitational. She ran an 18:19 5k, winning the race easily. Rathjen still holds the girl's 5k record for this season with a time of 17:38.

Vandegrift High School went up to California this weekend to run the Stanford XC Invitational. The girls took 5th out of 37 teams, representing Texas quite well.

That wraps up this week's results, be sure to check out the video ( and tune in next week where I will be reporting live from the McNeil meet!
