Event Recap:
On Saturday, October 13, the girls cross country team took on Suffield and Taft on Suffield’s home course.  The team endearingly refers to themselves as “The Little Engine that Could”, although The Bears did not run away with a win, they proved once again that they earn the moniker.  Each Berkshire runner ran a personal record for the season, even considering their competitors each fielded teams that are at least three times Berkshire’s size.  The generous Suffield course in combination with fabulous weather resulted in tremendous improvements in just one week.  In fact, Co-Captain Francesca Ghi ’14 and rookie Olivia Silverman ’15 displayed the greatest progress within one week by running 1 min 17 sec and 1 min 12 sec faster respectively. Also improving by one whole minute in the last seven days are Krisse Niemi ’15 and Karolin Kreke ’13.  Even more awe-inspiring is that these two girls improved their times by two minutes in just two weeks.  Co-Captain Julia Slyer ’15 showed outstanding courage running with a terrible respiratory cold and still pulling off a personal record for the season.  Fifth former Tara Bludell’s strategy for the day was to take it easy and hang back a bit.  Although she hung back in second place, she still ran a personal record for the season with an impressive time of 19:29.
