Whitney Young hosted the Fleet Feet Invitational at Washington Park last Saturday. Cool and cloudy conditions with a little rain sprinkled in, made for favorable race conditions. However, excess rain overnight led to a sloppy course that helped create a true cross country experience. Days like this, you want to race for a place as a PR will be hard to come by. Both Devin Greenfield and Hannah Rush both managed to take over a minute off their previous best, which is all the more impressive given the conditions. They were 2 of 19 Warriors who ran their season best times.
As a team, we placed very well among the competition. The Varsity team finished in 3rd place, the JV team took 2nd, and the Frosh/Soph team was the meet champion. At that level, Caroline Reich was the individual winner and led 8 girls from Deerfield in the top 10 spots.
