Girls’ Cross Country

Merrimack Valley 40, Portsmouth 55, Oyster River 58, St. Thomas 67

Key players: MV – Sophia Rebenciuc (1st), Sophia Reynolds (2nd), Emma York (3rd), Maddy Garrity (14th), Samantha Kimball (21st)

Highlights: The Pride executed the race plan perfectly, running progressively faster over the 5K course at Oyster River and eventually moving into the top three spots in the last mile. The boys race was cancelled due to heat.

Coach’s quote: “Our strategy of starting easy and progressively picking up the pace worked well with the heat, which, combined with a very tough course, made for a hard day. The two Sophias ran together the entire race, with Rebenciuc crossing just in front of Reynolds. Samantha Kimball was the hero of the day, overcoming mid-race struggles to move up over the final mile and seal the win for the girls.” – MV’s Dave Irving
