Pelham Girls XC Prepares for States
submitted by Justin Soucy, Coach, PHS Girls Cross County The Pelham Invitational was held on Saturday, October 15, at the Harris Family Track. It was exciting right out of the gate. Torrential rains the day before wreaked havoc on the course causing a re- routing of the trek through the Pelham woods. As well, there was a bridge issue over one of the brooks; there wasn’t one. Coaches Kress and Soucy were able to piece together a crossing with help from the boys’ team and Mr. Hammar. As a result, the bridge is the best it’s been in years. The re-routing of the course resulted in the total length being 5,222 meters rather than the traditional 5K. The girls’ JV team ran first on a muddy slow trail. Andrea O’Hearn came through first for Pelham followed by Emily Mallard, Lisa Yeaton, Sarah Yeaton and Minta Notini. When the times were converted to a traditional 5K time, most of them ran season bests for the fall.
The Varsity race went off soon
after, on a now even muddier course. It proved to be technical for all runners but Pelham ran well and finished third out of nine
teams, missing second place to St. Thomas. St. Thomas is going to be a tough team to catch. They may be the one to beat if Pelham wants to break into the top 10 at the DII States. Just three days after the Pelham Invite, the varsity team traveled to Amherst to run in the Southern Cluster Championship at Freestyle Farm. It was a tough course but the girls ran well finishing fifth out of eight teams. Shannen Arsenault finished just two seconds behind the second place finisher at the Pelham Invite. Both Erica and Erin ran great races finishing just seconds behind Emma Boyd from Windham. The entire girls’ team looks poised and ready to bust out incredible performances at the state meet next Saturday. The fate of the team relies on all seven girls running their season best. Results Pelham Invite October 15: S. Arsenault, 21:53, #5 overall; E. Krawczyk, 22:15, #11 overall; E. Pantaleo, 22:32, #12 overall. Results Cluster October 18: S. Arsenault, 20:50, #9 overall; E. Pantaleo, 21:27, #15 overall; E. Krawczyk, 21:41, #17 overall; R. Snide 23:43, #34 overall; and A. Goss, 23:58, #37 overall. The Division II state tournament will be held on Saturday, October 29, at Derryfield Park, starting at 11:30 a.m.
