Carlisle Cross Country hosted Cumberland Valley and Mifflin County for the Commonwealth Division titles on both sides.  The girls fell to CV by a score of 20-41 and also to Mifflin by a much closer 26-29 score.  The race winner was Ana Bondy, but then the bigger schools' numbers took their toll.  Rounding out the scoring for the Lady Herd were Jayde Thomas, Maeve Evans, Aubrey Mackey and Maggie Reidy.

On the boys' side the Herd easily bested Mifflin by a 19-42 score, but the Eagles came in ranked 10th in the State and showed why they deserved the State ranking. All streaks must end and a couple big ones did yesterday.  Cumberland Valley hadn't beaten Carlisle in an XC dual since 2012.  Also, our boys' streak of dual meet wins dating back to 2015 was snapped.  And most notably, there will not be a 7th consecutive Commonwealth Division title this year.  Our boys ran well, just not enough in the 25-32 loss.  Kevin Shank and Andrew Diehl went 1-2, then Ryan Brody and Colby Williams were the seniors affecting the team score.  

The girls end the dual meet season at 3-3, the boys at 5-1.

Carlisle Cross-Country hosted teams from State College on Tuesday evening and picked up two big wins.  

On the girls' side, State opted to rest a good number of their top runners and we made them pay for it, winning 21-35.  Ana Bondy won the race and was followed by Jayde Thomas's 2nd place finish.  The rest of the girls affecting the team score were Maeve Evans, Inga Parfeni, Aubrey Mackey, and Lauren Vertuli.  

On the boys' side the Herd sunk the Little Lions on the strength of our #3 and #4 runners, Ryan Brody and Colby Williams.  Andrew Diehl and Kevin Shank crossed the line 1-2, then the meet happened behind them.  Ryan and Colby each passed State College runners on the finishing stretch to secure the win 27-30.  

Both Boys and Girls teams are 2-0 on the season
