Girls' D2-A Recap

Jennifer Korty is Hershey-bound. It's something she couldn't say last year, but she can in 2016. She can also say she's a district champion. Korty ran 19:30 at Lakeland's course for the Class-A win, booking a trip to the state meet after not qualifying last year.

In the heated team race, Elk Lake took the team crown, claiming the one state spot allotted to Class-A this year. Usually, D2 has gotten two spots for Hershey, but the PIAA limited it to just one this year, which meant one of the perennial powers--Elk Lake and Holy Cross--would have to stay home.

Elk Lake took spots three through five. Justine Johns was third, Keri Jones fourth, and Sadie Bosscher fifth for Elk Lake, which scored 25 points for the win. Holy Cross will still send three to Hershey with Abby Corrigan, Abby Guziewicz, and Clair O'Connor. Their usual frontrunner, Lexi Walsh, did not race.
