Boys Team Finishes with Perfect Score, Girls in Top 2

Emerson’s Cross Country Team ran a meet at Greenhills last Thursday, Sep. 22, against both Greenhills and Hillel Day School. They performed extremely well on a difficult two-mile course. As described by a few of the runners, it is very green, and very hilly. Nonetheless, Emerson’s boys team was able to place the first 5 runners (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th place—a perfect score and a rare cross country feat) as well as 8 of the first 10 finishers. Ralph Dixon, Luka Hecht, and Anthony VanOyen led the way for the Eagles. The girls team also performed well, with Lucy Mehraban finishing second and Cate Weiser crushing her time from the same course last season. The team looks forward to continuing its success this upcoming Thursday at County Farm Park.
