Four PA Girls in Saucony Elite 50 Individual Rankings


Four Pennsylvania harriers are among the top 25 in the country in the latest Saucony Elite 50 produced and published by the MileSplit national site. After her record-setting performance on the state course in Hershey at the PIAA Foundation meet on September 21, Tessa Barrett of Abington Heights is now US#12. Joining her is US#16 Unionville senior Courtney Smith, who ran the #2 all-time 3 mile time at the September 28th McQuaid Invitational. 2012 Foot Finalist Kennedy Weisner of Elk County Catholic has the #1 McQuaid time from last year, and ran solo just a few seconds back of Smith on Saturday with the #2 time on the day. She had been in the rankings since her PTXC-5 course record performance on September 7th. Weisner is in at US#20. And joining the top 25 for the first time in her young career is Cumberland Valley sophomore Mady Clahane, who wowed the Carlisle Invitational fans on September 28th with a 17:28, beating a returing Foot Locker finalist from WV by 30 seconds.
