The girls’ team placed 22 of 32 teams on the line. Pretty impressive considering there are about 134 4A schools in the state. Of the local teams who competed today Timber Creek placed 10th, Winter Park 14th, Dr. Phillips 19th, and Windermere was just 7 points ahead of us in 21st. Our team average was 20:50 and our #1-5 split was 4:08. Pretty good day overall and so much fun being back at the state meet. We’re a very young team and can only continue to improve.
