The Galway Varsity Cross Country Teams Concluded their 2020 Fall Season
This season because volleyball and soccer were not taking place in the fall, many newcomers joined both the Boys’ and Girls’ teams. The Varsity Girls were 4-4 in dual meets and came in 6th out of 9 schools in the WAC Championships. The girls were led by Senior Captain Morgan Drouin who medaled in the League Championship. Sophomore standout Emma Jordan, secured a place on the WAC All Star Team for her 3rd consecutive year, by finishing 6th in the championship meet. The girls team was well balanced with girls from every grade: Junior Julia Reedy, Sophomores Abigail Ehrenberg, Emma Mariani and Stepahanie Martin, two Freshmen Abby Gullett and Emma Mitchell as well as one eighth grader Taylor Germain. The girls were a NYS Scholar Athlete Team.
The Varsity Boys were 1-5-2 and also finished 6th out of 9 schools in the WAC Championship. They were led by Senior Captain Ben Jordan and by Freshman standout Casey Clark who also became a WAC League Allstar with his 14th place finish at the WAC Championship. The Boys team has a bright future with sophomore Thomas Villano who always finished 2nd for the boys and was supported by Freshmen Clark Anuszewski and Eben Perkins as well by eighth graders Simon Evans and Cody Schneider. The boys were a NYS Scholar Athlete Team.
