Maria Corcoran- Rocky Hill (Cross Country): Corcoran placed 14th at the CCC Cross Country Championship, finishing with a time of 20:41. It was a personal-record for the seniors, who said “Going into conferences at Wickham, I’d had a string of races which I wasn’t too happy with, so I really wanted to PR. Having raced the Wickham Invitational the week before, I felt pretty comfortable on the course, so I just tried to stick with a pack and close hard, which worked! After our modified 2020 season, I’ve been super grateful for the chance to race at Wickham again, and I am very happy to have PR’d.”
