NorthWood Girls Cross Country fell just short of a Regional birth by placing 6th at the Elkhart Central Sectional today at Ox Bow Park. Only 8 points separated 4th place from 7th this morning in a very competitive battle for the right to move on in the IHSAA tournament.

Sophomores Kaitlin Burden and Emilie Allen paced the Panthers by placing 11th and 22nd overall. Seniors Megan Miller and Mia Wellington placed 27th and 32nd while Junior Reese Baryhydt was 42nd to round out the Panther scoring. Sophomore Jenna Markham placed 54th and Senior Karlie Fielstra was 61st.

Burden, Allen, and Miller will all advance as individuals to the Elkhart Central Regional next Saturday at Ox Bow Park. The girls will race at 11:15 am.
