The Carmel girls’ cross country team competed in the 2019 Nike Valley Twilight meet at Laverne Gibson on Saturday night. The Varsity team finished 4th to a very competitive field led by nationally ranked Beavercreek, OH. Carmel was led by sophomore, Jamie Klavon followed by Jasmine Klopstad, Alivia Romaniuk, Brooklynn Edwards, Roni Ledezma, Emily Hand and Brooke Waldal.
In the JV race the Carmel girls claimed 6 of the top10 spots for a convincing victory with 22 points led by Lily McAndrews, Abby Parker, Lily Rose, Madalyn Sailors, Halle Welch and Sydney Haines.
We were excited to be able to finish our regular season at this exciting meet and it was exactly that as we raced under the lights, listened to music, watched some fireworks and had plenty of fun. Team wise this was a great chance to get our younger athletes some experience on the State course and competing with some teams across the Midwest. By no means was this our best performance of the year, nor will it be as we are now focused on getting ready for the IHSAA tournament season starting next weekend.
