Season winding down for CVU runners (10/15/09)

Oct. 15, 2009

The final regular season competition for the Champlain Valley Union High cross country teams will take place at 2:30 p.m. on Friday in a multi-team meet at Mount Mansfield Union High in Jericho Center.

This will be the Redhawks’ final regular season run before the district championships in Swanton on Oct. 24.

At Middlebury last Saturday, Zack Pete scored his first victory of the campaign to lead the boys, credited by head coach Scott Bliss with team-wide, steady improvement.

The girls paced the CVU teams with a third-place finish, led by Adrienne Devita in second while teammate Summer Spillane came in sixth.
