Girls cross country wins New England Prep School DII Championship

On the heels of its recent ISL championship, the Thayer Academy girls varsity cross country team won the New England Prep School Division II Championship held this past Saturday (Nov. 9) at Nobles. 

The squad competed against 17 other schools, including traditionally strong teams such as Williston, Westminster, Hopkins, Middlesex, and Suffield, the defending champions. 

The Thayer girls varsity seven were led by Lilly Bradley '21 — who won the race — and Meg Dugan '22 (3rd), Katie Wipf '23 (10th), Sophia Hansen '23 (11th), Eloise Daniello '22 (17), Caitlin Fitzgerald '22 (26th), and Meghan Webb '20 (30th). 

Overall, 114 runners competed in the race. 

"This championship is a great follow-up to winning the ISL championship last weekend," said Head Coach Jeff Browne P '04, '05, who described the victory as "a great end to a storybook season" for a young team that displayed heart from start to finish.
