Princeton Invitational On Tap For Girls Cross Country

Posted on: September 7, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:   On the heels of a second place finish at the Indian Norwood Run, the Lady Eagles will head west to the Princeton Invitational this Saturday. 

 

A LOOK BACK:  The mud and weather didn’t dampen the Lady Eagles last week at the Norwood Indian Run.  Milford took second place overall, with sophomores Olivia Loeffler (3rd - 21.23) and Emma Beck (4th – 21.35), and junior Andrea Armstrong (8th – 22.19) finishing in the top ten in a field of over 150 runners.  Freshmen Lily Fleshour (27th) and Brooke Stansell (28th) crossed the finish together, both in 22.48.  Brooklyn George, a sophomore finished 33rd in 24.05, and the seventh finisher for Milford was Sophie Fleshour, as the freshman completed the course in 25.05 for 47th place.

Eastern Cincinnati Conference rival Loveland won the Invitational, followed by Milford and Mount Notre Dame. Loveland’s Ansley Richards placed first, with five of her teammates crossing the finish in the top 12.
