BOYS’ CROSS COUNTRY
Coach: Sandy Taggart
Record: 6-9, 3-3 league
Season's highlights: 3rd place in Section IX Class D race; senior Evan Taggart, top finisher for us at sectionals, missed qualifying for states by one position.
Top runners: junior Dillon Taggart and senior Evan Taggart were our top two runners all season.
Coach’s comment: “We had 11 boys this year; our numbers have been steady for the last three years. The boys continued to improve both individually and as a team as the season progressed, and I am happy with that.”
Looking ahead: “We will lose four seniors to graduation: Michael D'Auria, Dimetrius Miranda, Evan Taggart, and Tyler Young. I hope the enthusiasm for cross country continues here, and I would love to have some girls interested so we could field a girls’ team.”
Coach: Jen Gorr
Record: 10-9, 3-1 league
Season's highlights: State ranked, co-champions of the Division, having a section 9 leading scorer (Annaliese Gorr) and making it into the second round of sectionals.
Top players: Annaliese Gorr (sophomore) was leading scorer with 16 goals and 6 assists. First-team All-League; Tara Roser (sophomore) had 62 saves in goal. Second-team All-League; Ashlynne Ratner had an amazing season as first-time goalie.
Farrah Mills and Ami Calo were selected to the First-team All League.
Coach’s comment: “This was an outstanding season even with the loss of 10 seniors from the previous year and having a very young team. Sectionals were an exciting time for my young team and I was very proud of how hard they worked. We had a few injuries and missing players for sectionals, which I feel contributed to our loss against Eldred, who I believe we could have beat since we dominated the entire game up until the last ten minutes. We are looking forward to a re-match next year.”
Looking ahead: “We are losing four seniors, but I feel my team is very strong and the players that will be slated for the vacant starting positions will meet the requirements to carry our team to sectionals and hopefully a Section IX title.”
