Girls Cross Country
Billerica 16, Tewksbury 41
Andover 18, Tewksbury 39
The Tewksbury High girls cross country team closed its dual meet season with losses to Billerica and Andover in a double-dual meet. The Redmen were running without two of their top runners, Katrina Dick and Caitlyn Leary.
Leading the way for Tewksbury (2-8) was Carina Berglund, who placed 8th overall in a time of 19:26 over the 2.9 mile course.
Berglund was followed by senior Samantha McGouldrick (11th, 20:09), Olivia Boudreau (13th, 20:23), Rachel McCabe (14th, 20:24) and Bridget Blair (21st, 21:30).
"We ran quite well," said TMHS Coach Peter Malloy. "I didn’t record the splits this race but they were pretty fast! Most girls ran close to their PR’s at two miles and they still had 9/10 of a mile to go. Our pack time 1-4 was :57 and that’s without Dickie & Leary! We’ll be a force in the coming weeks/months/years."
