Warriors with Season Bests at Regional

At a meet where the Deerfield Warriors needed to be at their best, all 7 girls came through with not only season bests but lifetime PR's at the Lake Forest Regional.  Looking at the competition, DHS was not projected to finish among the top 6 teams to advance to the Sectional Race.  Armed with that knowledge, all we could do is have our best race and see if it's good enough.  The Warriors definitely took care of the running our best part.  PR's ranged from 45 seconds to 1:31 with Lexi Schott the owner of the biggest improvement.  The girls did a great job of running unafraid, getting in the mix, and using the pack to push them forward.  Ultimately, our team score was not good enough to advance all 7.  Deerfield ended in 7th place.  There was no hanging of heads though, as this massive improvement was easily our best meet of the season.  Advancing as individual was senior Shaylee Roth, sophomore Caroline Reich, and freshman Lexi Schott.
