Sports are heating up at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, with the cross country team competing in their first race.

The girls competed in their first meet at the BCAA XC Week One at Markham Park on Wednesday and were led by Ella Schwartz, who came in second place with a time of 23:08.3.

Caroline Schwartz was next to finish, placing sixth, while Olympia Koumoutsakis and Sparta Koumoutsakis rounded out the top ten. Morgan Melchiorri and Grace MacKenzie also ended up in the top 15, racing alongside teammates Mikayla Ryan, Riley Anders, and Mikayla Sugrano. MSD finished in third place as a team.

The boys placed in fifth, with Cole Spinks making the top ten. Matthew Rosenberg was next to finish, followed by Owen Sarrazit, Caleb Walker, Veer Kapoor, and Matthew Nason.

“Girls ran a great first meet and have been training hard all summer,” head coach Mike Mauro said.  “The boys had a good showing, and we were missing a few of our top runners. This is our first measuring stick of the season, and we are looking forward to building off our success.”
