With the Thetford Invitational in their rear view mirrors, the Champlain Valley Union High girls and boys cross country teams are looking forward to taming New York City’s regional competition Saturday.
Also on the schedule for some runners is a Friday jaunt at Mount Mansfield Union High and Mill River Park.
CVU’s girls finished second and the boys seventh in Saturday’s event, which drew some 1,000 competitors to Thetford’s 23rd running of the annual Woods Trail Run.
Once again it was the Redhawks’ Autumn Eastman blazing the way to the girls finish line with a record time that was more than a minute better than the runner-up.
Coe-Brown Northwood Academy won the girls competition with 50 points to runner-up CVU’s 60.
South Burlington High was the boys’ titleholder with 60 points, The Redhawks had 330.
