The Lady Rams displayed great strength and speed in two separate races at Bath last Saturday. The 7-runner varsity squad captured 3rd place in the invitational’s Division 1 race. An additional seven Rockford runners placed in the top ten at the later JV race.
Tough competition from Saline (1st) and Hudsonville (2nd) packed enough girls amidst our runners to nudge the Lady Rams out of a top-2 trophy by a mere seven points. Rockford still kept the score very tight, and made sure the other teams worked hard to earn their awards.
Lauren Brasure led the pack throughout the varsity race to clinch 1st place with a phenomenal 17:58. Kerianne Schoff was not far behind at 18:36 to take 6th place in the event. Morgan Harney finished 15th at 19:36; Morgan Benoit took 17th at 19:43; and Maja Hill scored 20th at 20:08. Brasure and Schoff both set new lifetime personal records (LTPR) with their results.
Another 39 girls from Rockford ran in the JV race. The Lady Rams continued to show great team depth as all but one of the top seven finishers were from Rockford. Freshman Molly Weir (20:18) grabbed 1st place as sophomores Larissa Medich (20:36) and Avri Beach (20:42) took 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
