Last Wednesday the girl’s split their tri-meet against Mystic Valley and Essex Aggie. This brought their record to 5-2. Chelsea beat Mystic Valley 25-30 but lost to Essex 26-33.
Senior captain Wendy Becerra was second overall for Chelsea running 23:35 for the three mile course. Melanie Nguyen was fourth overall in a time of 24:23. Melanie has been steadily getting better every week and is running closer to Wendy. Freshman Jocelyn Poste was eight overall running 25:08. Yarid Deras and Cynthia Guzman finished together in 14th and 15th place both running 27:59.
Both meets were close, we just need to do a better job of running as a pack and limit the time elapsed between Wendy and our fifth runner.
The girl’s will be running at Greater Lawrence on Wednesday. Notre Dame has clinched the dual meet title so this meet will be for second place in the large school division.
