Putting it simply, Marianne Abdalah does not feel comfortable in crowds. That personal preference for open space explains two major things about her life.
It was a great race. But the Archbishop Wood girls had far more on their minds than just a race.
US#2 Unionville Girls and US#8 West Chester Henderson boys captured team titles at the Ches-Mont Champs. Unionville's Courtney Smith and West Chester East's Chris Cummings were individual titleists.
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. Elk County Catholic's Kennedy Weisner posted a solo effort of 16:54.6. Maplewood's Jeremy Parsons won the Boys Varsity A Race in 15:19.5.
Cumberland Valley sophomore Mady Clahane took her running career to a new level at the Carlisle Invitational - beating a returning Foot Lock Finalist, and setting the fastest time on new course or old in the 21st edition of the Carlisle Invitational. In the boys Challenge race, Carlisle junior Zach Brehm defended his home turf in a very fast 15:28.
US#9, PA#2, Pennsbury girls survived a scare, winning by 12 points over PA#3 Mt. Lebanon by a score of 78 to 90. (Photo by David Beyerle)
