Lady Red Hawks finish third at home invite

Lady Red Hawks finish third at home invite
Ally Ladd who ran a lifetime personal best of 20:07.

The Cedar Springs girls’ cross country team finished a very respectable 3rd in the annual Cedar Springs Invitational with some great performances throughout the day and with five girls earning medals after placing in the top 25. 

“We had tremendous performances,” said Coach Melinda Stressman. “The girls are coming more together with each and every meet. Our ladies love to run as groups and help each other through meets as they do in their workouts and it is showing.”

Ally Ladd crossed the finish line first for the Red Hawks placing 4th overall inching closer to the 19 minute barrier and running a lifetime PR (personal record) of 20:07.  Teammate Danika Fessenden ran a strong race as well, finishing 7th.  Finishing next for the Red Hawks and looking strong throughout the race were Annalise Elliott (16th) and Laina Payne (21st).  Rounding out the top 25 and earning herself a medal was Kelsi Green. 

Running as a strong pack and finishing well were Molly Bentley (30th) and Isabel VanDusen (31st) followed closely by Larissa McGrath (33rd).  Reagan Viau (47th) ran her lifetime PR of 24:06 and finishing strong and pushing through some pain was Hannah Reed (50th).  Running for the last time on her home course was senior Paige Marsman who finished 58th.

The girls will be competing in the 2020 Shepherd Bluejay Invite on Saturday, October 3.  Good luck to our Lady Red Hawks!
