The Nauset Girls XC team closed out the regular season on top as they took the overall win today at the Cape and Islands XC League Championships. Nauset 39, Barnstable 59, Sandwich 68, MV 86, and Falmouth 132 rounded out the top 5 teams. Host DY put on an exciting and organized race. It was a 6 race format with JV races going off at 10:30 am and Varsity races (both big school division and small) staggered in 30 minute waves.
Co-Captains Abby Farrell and Izzy Nobili fought strong head winds and led the field for most of the race with Sandwich's Emma Eastman on their heels. Eastman, however, came away with the overall individual win as she out kicked the Nauset duo in the final stretch. All was not lost however, as today's race was truly a team event. Collectively Nauset came out big today and had excellent performances from top to bottom. This strong TEAM depth proved valuable to the Lady Warriors as they out scored Barnstable by 20 points and Sandwich by 29. Farrell 2nd, Nobili 4th, Ella Kelly 8th, Makayla Hutchinson 11th and Shay Riske 14th rounded out the top 5 for Nauset while the next two in were Rebekah Pranga in 19th and Leah Hoopes in 27th. Competing in the JV large school race was Maddie Kelly 5th place, Lily Pooler 7th and Katie (K-Dog) Farrell 12th.
Nauset finished the dual meet season with an impressive overall record of 9-0. The Nauset Girls will be competing at the Eastern MA Divisional Championships Nov. 9th in Wrentham. A top 4 team finish will advance the team to the ALL-State meet in Gardner on Nov. 16th.
