The interscholastic cross country season gets down to the big ones this weekend with the Champlain Valley Union High boys and girls teams heading for the Northern District Meet Saturday at Missisquoi Valley Union High in Swanton.
CVU’s top runners were in New York City Saturday where autumn in New York was not the pop-jazz standard song or the 2000 film starring Richard Gere, but rather CVU’s and Division 1 premier girls runner Autumn Eastman taking second place in the highly regarded Manhattan Invitational.
Eastman ran the 2.5-mile course in 14 minutes and 23.1 seconds.
The CVU girls finished eighth in team standings. Top Vermont boys team was South Burlington High in 10th.
