Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
 
 

PA#1 Unionville beat 7-time NXN champions Fayetteville-Manlius 45-79 in the featured, seeded race, putting five ahead of FM's four, and eight ahead of FM's five. Unionville head coach Mark Lacianca told PennTrackXC that they went to the meet to "prove that we belong." Continuing, Lancianca said that the girls had been nervous the night before, but that the team talked about taking advantage of opportunities. "The girls followed the race plan to perfection," he continued. "Courtney (Smith) was about 7th at the mile in 5:31, and at two miles, and then finished alone in 16:46.2, the fastest time on the day and just a second off Weisner's course record from last year.

Smith followed
the Unionville plan, which is to run your pace and push the last part of the race. "Around the mile I caught the lead pack. By a mile-and-a-half, I had worked my way up to second, and I took the lead a little before the two mile (11:11)."

In an earlier race, Elk County Catholic's Kennedy Weisner posted a solo effort of 16:54.6. "It's a shame Kennedy and Courtney did not run in the same race," Lacianca said.
