Whitewater Whippet Cross Country Team Competes at Rock Valley Conference

The Lady Whippet CC team competed in the RVC championships on Thursday evening in perfect race conditions.  Freshman Sabrina Bomberg led the team to an 8th place finish out of 10 teams. Her time of 24:37 secured 45th place. Sophomore Olive Coburn turned in a time of 25:10, good enough for 48th place. This was close to Olive’s best time of the year on what is a very challenging course. Morgan Stillwagon was the team’s 4th runner in 55th and was also a few ticks of the clock off of her personal best for the season.

The JV squad was led by Freshmen Emma Weigel and Caelyn Caputo. These two pack run well together and catapulted the team to a 6th place finish out of 10 teams. Both runners nearly ran a personal best on this day. The program also celebrated senior night which includes Rosie Aschenbrener, Jenna Lee and Morgan Stillwagon.

The group looks to recover from today’s gutsy efforts and tackle the WIAA Sectional meet which will be hosted again by Whitewater High School at UW-Whitewater on Saturday, October 26th.
