  • The girls cross country team maintained undefeated status against their toughest competition yesterday, beating Tolland 24 to 33 and East Hartford 15 to 50 wrapping up their regular season with 10 wins and 0 losses.  It was a big victory for the TE girls, who have been close other seasons, but unable to beat Tolland until last night's win.  Shennyn Giannelli earned her 5th 1st place finish of the season completing the 2 mile run in 13:38.  5 TE girls joined Shennyn in the top 10, including Taylor Lord coming in 5th for TE and 9th overall without choking on her own saliva during the race.  Fantastic, Taylor!  Shout out to Ishaal Bukhari for a great finish yesterday, and for her spirit in recognizing excellence in others this season.  Sophia Gordon looked strong during one of her best races of the season as did Grace Smith, who pushed herself and the team with her words of wisdom, "Everyone is essential to victory."  Good luck at your league meet this Monday, Cougars!!
