Norton Girls and Boys Stay Undefeated on the Season at 4-0; Girls Win 21-26 and Boys Win 19-37!

     Congrats to the Norton girls and boys teams who won their 4th straight meet of the season against the Bellingham Blackhawks and who both move to 4-0.  The girls won 21-36 while the boys won 19-37.

    Behind the TVL's best female runner Sarah Edwards from Bellingham, Norton's strong pack up front went 2-3-4-5-7 for the win.  Katie Bradley continued to lead the way for Norton in front of teammates Kambrynn Bowman, Anya DiLorenzo, Caroline Weber and Sarah Anderson.  Rounding out the top 7 for the the Lady Lancers was Megan Nicols and Calie Shea.
     The top two Norton boys, Joey Annand and Chris Wrenn ran about 150 yards the wrong way in the middle of the 2.89 mile course and had to work their way back to their previously held first and second places.  It was a test or heart for these two veteran runners,  however, they fought back and Joey Annand placed first for the first time this season and Chris Wrenn placed second. Freshman Austin Carroll is making huge strides this season and placed 3rd overall for the Lancer boys.  Senior Captain Parker Cleathero placed 6th, while Thomas LeClair placed 7th.  Senior Captain Chris Alves grabbed a displacement point with his 10th place finish and rounding out the varsity boys was Chris Tatarczuk with a new PR pace.

Both teams have a quick turnaround this week as they take on the Ashland Clockers this Wednesday for senior day in their final home meet of the season.
