I admit, though I downplayed her chances in the NHCC preview, after her blitzing of our home course last week I was pretty confident the day would be hers. Once recovered they were off and running. Sophia executed the race strategy out perfectly as usual, gaining psychological and physical advantage throughout, and eventually winning in the fastest time of the day. A PR on that course?
Dare we say it?
Belmont Invitational – New Hampshire Cross Country
Maddy raced fantastic, running another sub and almost cracking the top As an example of how far both Maddy and Emma have come, Emma ran A summer of running and who knows; top 25 next year Maddy? Maizie capped off her MVXC career with one of her best races ever, an almost minute improvement over last year.
She was so quick that I missed her on the course twice and thought she had dropped out. Crossing the line was bittersweet, as Maizie has been such a great leader this year and certainly will leave a void, but the team is all the better because of her.
While only running one year on the team, she proved her worth by always running in the varsity 7 this year.

Tristan, perhaps affected a bit more than others by the weather and never a big fan of Derryfield anyhow, was the next MV runner to cross the line. Another team stalwart, and a great source of humor as well as inspiration, we have been lucky to have had the last four years with Tristan.
Wrapping up the day for the girls was MacNeill, over a minute faster than she was over the same course a month ago and showing she deserved to be in the race.
Overall, the girls placed 8th, achieving the pre-season goal of a top-ten finish and 6 places higher than a year ago. The plan was derailed before it began by a lack of summer running, but as the season progressed and runners improved it became apparent that it was still a possibility, though like the girls it would require a hero effort.

Individually, we once again had a favorite in the race, although when you have such a big favorite as David was it gets a little scary as the target on your back grows. No such courtesy next week, please!
That was a little scary. Leading from the gun, DRen never was able to pull away, but set just a quick enough pace that no one was able to muster up a kick good enough to steal victory away. Matt runs well at Mines Falls, so look out!
More on these seniors after their final races. Third for MV was our top returning runner, Ethan.
