Varsity Cross Country

by Ava DeVlaminck

This week the Dryden Varsity Cross Country team competed in their first meet at Cass Benton, Northville. Although this was a challenging course, the team pulled through for an amazing run. This race was split up by grade, so the team was divided among many races. In the first race, Jackson Spencer ran an awesome race with a time of 23:56. Next for the boys, in the other race, Aiden Fitchett ran a time of 19:30 with Noah Hall close behind running a 24:15 time. Next, Connor Wolff ran 27:48, Matthew Hickmott ran 28:59, and Matthew Livingston ran 36:08. On the girls' side, Audrey Napolitano ran 25:46, Ava DeVlaminck ran 28:23, and Lily Finnigan ran 28:28. Great job to everyone and good luck on the next meet on Saturday, September 11th at the Bad Axe Hatchet Invite!
