MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE—The Lady Scots, recently crowned State Champs, traveled to Derryfield Park on Saturday, Nov. 10, to compete in this autumn’s New Englands meet.
“Our girls raced tough on a hard course and were the best finish for a Bonny Eagle team at New Englands and top Maine team,” said Scots head coach Mike Burleson. “Finished off a very strong year undefeated against Maine schools, winning the Southern Maine Classic, Festival of Champions, Regional and State Championships.”
As a team, Bonny Eagle finished 13th of 28 schools competing. Ami Beaumier turned in the squad’s performance, a time of 20:16.40, good enough for 56th place; Delaney Hesler followed her in 95th (20:43.80), Emmaline Pendleton in 112th (20:58.10), Hannah Stevens 136th (21:09.10), Emma Abbott 154th (21:25.50), Abigail Nelson 181st (21:49.70), and Kayla Raymond 210th (22:26.70).
Champlain Valley Union High School, out of Hinesburg, Vermont, won the team competition. Kate Wiser of Pomperaug High in Southbury, Connective, took the individual crown.
Of further note: Bonny Eagle standout on the boys side, Aiden Willey, also competed at New Englands, finishing 61st overall (17:01.30).
