The Girls Cross Country season this year is still in the running as they placed 5th at regionals, landing them a spot at sectionals. Their season started out with some inconsistent race patterns and injuries, which lead to slower times in the twenty minute range.

Despite early setbacks, the team rallied and pushed through. Momentum for the team kicked in at the Palatine Invitational on September 22nd and carried through the following weekend at Peoria. Senior Laura Durkin, Senior Arlene Amaya, Junior Marie O’Brien, and Sophomore Maria Quinn all came in with times under 19 minutes, which is faster than the team has been running since the 2011 season.

Outstanding performances continued at conference with senior Laura Durkin receiving her fourth consecutive all conference honor. Sophomore Marie O’Brien placed 2nd at the meet and senior Arlene Amaya followed closely with a 3rd place finish.

Other impressive performances came from senior Mary Bridget Donahue, Sophomores Katie Cahill and Maria Quinn, and Freshman Mikaela Burns.

The girls have already broken several of their own records this season, and are hoping to continue that trend through the rest of the season. With one more meet before state, the varsity girls are poised and determined to finish their season strong.
