NorthWood Girls Cross Country opened their 2019 campaign on Tuesday night by defeating Fairfield, Bremen, and Wawasee at Wawasee. In a race with the pending storms, the Lady Panthers competed and won against three solid teams.
Kaitlin Burden paced the Panthers with a time of 21:17 followed closely by fellow sophomore Emilie Allen in 21;46. Seniors Megan Miller and Mia Wellington and Junior Reese Baryhydt rounded out the scoring for NorthWood.
On Saturday, the girls will go to Woodland Trails at First Baptist Church in Elkhart to try and keep their championship streak alive at the Elkhart Christian Academy Hokum Karem Meet. Varsity racing begins at 9:00 a.m.
