The girls’ cross-country team is off to a fantastic start, currently flaunting an undefeated record of 5-0.

Led by captains Anna Wood (VI) and Cathleen Parker (V), the team is supported by its strongest lineup in years. Regarding the team, Parker said, “We have so much potential on the team with a strong group of underclassmen: Nikki Vanasse (IV), Ryan Davi (III), and Alina Irvine (III). They will help us go very far and surprise the competition.”

Keeping her expectations high for the team, Wood hopes “to go undefeated in dual meets, win the Skyland Valley Division meet, and possibly win the Non Public A state championship.”

Head coach Tim Grant believes that “this team may be one of the best cross country teams that Pingry has ever had, and the best part is that they are young.”

With a solid start, Parker, along with the rest of the team, is “looking forward to a very promising season!”
