McKenna had the #2 time of the day in 15:58, just 2 seconds shy of the old state record. Charter boys and Archmere boys came away with the Division I and Division II second place trophies!!

Charter and Tatnall girls also had dominant team performances in their respective races. Tatnall came away with a perfect 15 points, sweeping 1-5, and taking places 7 and 12 for the victory. Charter placed 4 in the top 10 to win for the third straight year!  All eyes were on Pierce and Macedo, and when the results were posted both girls finished with the exact same time!! Pierce's final time gives her the de facto course record, but they both ran impressive races in solo efforts.  St. Mark's finished 2nd in division I, and Ursuline came away with the Division II 2nd place trophy.

Week 9

Sam Parsons repeated as County Champions, running 15:52 to lead Tatnall boys to victory over Salesianum and Charter, 50-66-87.
Reagan Anderson wins in 18:04 as Tatnall girls repeat over Charter and Padua, 26-75-100. The built-up race of the day was between #1 ranked and nationally undefeated Julie Macedo against #14 ranked and 2-time defending champion Haley Pierce. No one could have scripted the finish, but the girls ran each other into the ground in an attempt to prove their excellence. With just 800M to go the course record was easily in jeopardy, but in the end Tatnall's Reagan Anderson was there to pick up the pieces and capture the county championships. This is proof that anything can happen in XC!!
