On Saturday, the Northgate MS and varsity cross country teams competed in the massive Slippery Rock Invitational, previewing the WPIAL course at Cooper’s Lake. Declan Klein and Isabella Uccellini both had strong races for the middle school.
Jonas Jason was the top varsity boy, finishing 44th out of 438 boys. He was 5th out of all single-A boys. For the varsity girls, Megan Wisniewski ran a personal best of 19:45 to finish 6th out of 470 girls and 2nd among the single-A runners. Her time is the second fastest all-time in school history!
The varsity teams will travel back to Cooper’s Lake on Thursday October 26th for the WPIAL Championship races and a chance to earn a spot in the PIAA State Championship.
