Event Recap:

On Saturday, September 29th, the Berkshire Girls Cross Country team traveled to Hotchkiss for a dual meet. Although Hotchkiss ran away with a win (21-38) the ladies of Berkshire School pulled off some stellar performances on an arduous course ridden with hills.   Leading for ¾ of the race was Berkshire’s Australian wonder Tara Blundell ‘14. She crossed the finish line in second place (19:58) but was only 35 seconds away from a long standing course record.  Furthermore, she bettered her time from last week by seven seconds which is outstanding considering the challenging nature of the Hotchkiss course.  In first place for Hotchkiss was fifth former Sami Glass with a impressive time of 19:32.  In fact, she was less than five seconds from a course record.  In second place (sixth overall) for the Berkshire ladies was Co-Captain Julia Slyer ’14. She impressed us by matching her time from last week. Right behind her was Berkshire’s Olivia Silverman ’15 who improved her time from last week by ten seconds. Karolin Kreke ’13 impressed her teammates by nearly matching her time from last week even though she has been ill. Krisse Niemi ’15 wins the award for Most Improved Runner of the week by besting her time by almost 50 seconds.  Finishing with the second most improved time (even though she has been sick all week) was Berkshire’s spirited leader and Co-Captain Francesca Ghi ’14. Francesca improved her time by 27 seconds. Overall, the ladies had a wonderful day…because on this day, the team vowed to never run by themselves, but to always remember those that are running with them, even when they are alone. On this day, the Berkshire ladies valued the valiant effort it took to run with tremendous heart. WAY TO GO BEARS!
