The girls narrowly defeated a tough team from Harrison to win the program’s 11th consecutive Sectional championship. Senior Haley Mansfield won her first individual Sectional title.

Sophomore Emma McClellan held off Harrison’s Caitlin Williams to take the runner-up spot. Junior Annabel Prokopy ran tough to finish fourth overall in 20:00. Freshman Shannon Dineen (12th) competed well and cut over a minute from her previous best at the Amphitheater.

Seniors Abby Serra (15th) and Amelia Simpson (19th) also finished inside the top 20 to earn “All-Sectional” honors. Junior Alli Steffey (25th) successfully worked through her first race in a month.

The team advances to next week’s IHSAA Regional, also hosted by Harrison at the Amphitheater. The top five teams at the Regional will advance to the New Prairie Semistate meet the following Saturday.
