Girls Middle School Cross Country · ECA Middle School Girls Cross Country fall to swarm despite individuals finishing 1st and 2nd

  Place Points
Elkhart Christian Academy 3rd 68

Thursday evening the Elkhart Christian Academy Middle School Girls Cross Country Team traveled to Northwood Middle School for a quad meet against Pierre Moran, Northwood and Jimtown. The mostly flat course, winding back and forth behind the school, featured one giant hill that challenged runners half way through the race. ECA’s Sheridan Maxwell finished in first place overall with a time of 12:55, for the 3K course, with Hannah Schramm close behind. The duo went 1st, 2nd on Tuesday night as well, with their places reversed. Through the use of their pushers, #6 and 7 runners for a school, who displace runners but do not score for their respective teams, Northwood and Pierre Moran were able to finish ahead of the ECA Girls Cross Country Team in the overall scoring. The team will next race at the Warsaw Middle School Cross Country Invitational at 9 a.m. on Saturday September 14.
