The trio of junior Maddie Boesch (6th), sophomore Charlotte Simpson (7th), and freshman Natalie Cuttell (8th) gave the Red Devils a solid 2-3-4 punch. Senior Shannon Dineen was the fifth and final scorer in 13th overall. Senior Bea Cabot earned the meet's final ribbon in 15th. Sophomore Alivia Lewis was the seventh Red Devil across the finish line in 20th. Alivia then headed up to the Complex to assist in the soccer team's 8-0 victory over Kankakee Valley.
