Briarwood Invitational

Council Rock North PA boys roll over LaSalle & NE#7 Chaminade NY.
Eleanor Roosevelt MD wins girls race.

At about 3/4-mile, Chaminade's Kevin McDermott is pushing the pace.
But Kevin Tschirhart of Northport NY and Council Rock's John Mahoney are nearby.

Girls race at one mile: Kate Vernon, Gwynedd, heads into the woods with a lot of company, including Henderson #1 Meghan Durkee. Vernon would win the race. Durkee led her team to a 2nd place behind Eleanor Roosevelt HS of MD

NE#7 Chaminade NY came into PA with high hopes, and left with a 3rd place behind a very strong Council Rock North squad, 1st with 51 points, and just five up on LaSalle. Chaminade #1 Kevin Mcdermott ran the fastest time of the day, a 16:32. Rock placed five runners within a minute, and their top three in 4th, 5th and 6th, just 16 seconds apart.

Eleanor Roosevelt MD girls ran into NE#2 Bay Shore NY on 9/11 at Penn State, but found southeastern PA more to their liking - barely. Just three points separated them from both West Chester Henderson and Gwynedd Mercy. Roosevelt was led by a 2-3 finish by Dominique Lockhart and Jennifer Redman.
Henderson took 2nd based on their 6th runner, who finished 36th.

Hatboro-Horsham, with two top runners under the weather, finished 4th with 99 points. Kate Vernon staked her claim for the #1 spot on Gwynedd Mercy with a 19:36 on the rain-drenched course. New Monarch Liz Kearnins, who won her appeal on her transfer just a few days ago, finished 5th in 20:14.
