This past weekend, Massachusetts' athletes competed at a trio of quality meets, and the results were a number of performances worthy to be on this week's poll, so much that we had to split it up with a separate boy' and girls' poll.
In this poll, we feature the girls. At the Bay State Invitational, Wellesley's Margaret Donahue won the Class A race in 18:41.87, less than two-seconds ahead of Sarah Roffman of Littleton. Shepherd Hill certainly looked impressive in the Class B race where their five scoring runners cracked the top 10, including individual titlist Rebekah James, who was timed in 18:39.96. Newton South's Caroline Barry was a winner in the Class C race where she was just .17 of a second ahead of Algonquin's Tess Reyes with a time of 18:26.82, the fastest of the day.
Milton's Bridget Mitchell was second in the Championship race of the Brown Invitational where she ran an all-time best and sub 18-minute clocking of 17:32.67. Finally at the Manhattan Invitational, Lowell's Olivia Sheffield was eighth in the Varsity C race where she finished at 15:21.60.
