Great Job to the XCP Cross Country Team!!!
Your running Gators took care of business yesterday at the Southwest Sectional Race in Gilbert! The Gators displayed their strength and stamina as they posted a low score of 41 points while the next best team was a distant 2nd place at 89 points (low score wins).
The Gators took 3 of the top 5 spots as senior Julia Russo led the charge for the Gators at a respectable 3rd place and was followed by senior Lily Beaver and sophomore Ella Wadsworth at 4th and 5th! Our next 2 rounded out our team scoring as Juniors Maggie Mostoller and Kaitlyn Markham both finished in the top 15! Our 6th runner, having a blazing finish and passing 3 runners, was senior Bella Gomez!
Fantastic job ladies!
The Gators move on to the State meet, which is Saturday morning, November 4, at the Cave Creek Golf Course in North Phoenix at 8:00am.
