The successful run of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas girls cross country team continued at the BCAA Meet #4.

On Tuesday, at Tradewinds Park, the Eagles finished first place, defeating Deerfield Beach and Coral Springs High School —moving to 15-1 this season.

“The girls won, and it was due to a phenomenal performance from the freshman girls during a hot and grueling race,” said Head Coach Mike Mauro. “They really pushed through and carried us to a big win.”

Individually, Devyn Sanders finished the race in fifth place with a time of 24:02.08. She was followed by teammate Julianna Couch, 7th, Grace Mackenzie, 9th, and Taylor Woonton, 10th.

The Eagles also had three other runners finish right outside the top-20. Morgan Melchiorri came in 17th, followed by Bianca Gonzalez and Gabrielle Fisher with a team score of 2:09.46, nearly two minutes faster than CSHS.
