The boys and girls both had an excellent regional race.
For the first time in school history, the girls can call themselves regional champions! The boys advanced as well, and they placed a very respectable 2nd place.
Individual medalists include:
Caroline Jachino, 2nd place
Brigid Tournoux, 5th place
And for the boys:
Steven Melin, 1st place
Braden Moore, 3rd place
Steven Melin's finish was also the most exciting finish of the day. Check out our twitter feed to see the thrilling conclusion; Cynthia Higginson captured a fantastic video of the event! Steven's mad dash ensured that for the past 6 out of 7 years, a Plains athlete (either a boy or a girl) stood atop the podium at regionals.
Both the boys and girls teams will compete at the Elmwood sectional on Saturday. Race times are 10 AM for the boys and 11 AM for the girls.
