York Catholic Runners Lead the Way at Districts

On a sunny, record warm day not so conducive for long distance running, York Catholic’s Madeline Murphy, a junior, captured the District 3 girls’ Class 1A race with a time of 20:27 on the 3.1-mile Big Spring High School course in Newville on October 28. Right on her heels for the silver medal was sophomore teammate Sheila Driscoll. The Fighting Irish placed all five of their runners in the top-25 to finish a close second in the team championship. Lancaster Catholic finished third and Delone Catholic finished in fifth place. Eden Lin, a junior at Lancaster Catholic, finished in fifth place individually.

In the girls’ Class 2A run, Trinity’s Lila Shore finished in third place, just 15 seconds off the winning pace running the difficult, hilly, banked terrain in under 20 minutes. The boys’ Class 1A race had three runners from Annville-Cleona place in the top-five, but York Catholic’s senior Jack Driscoll ran a 17:34 time to capture fifth place, helping his Fighting Irish teammates to a silver medal in the team competition.

The PIAA state cross country championships are run at Hershey’s Parkview course on November 4.
