RHS Girls Cross-Country Opens with Win v. Classical
The Revere High girls cross country team opened its season in fine fashion, defeating Lynn Classical, 23-32, last Wednesday on the Lady Patriots’ 2.8-mile home course behind the high school that starts and ends at the baseball field.
Rocio Gonzalez Castillo was the top performer for Revere, coming across the line in second place in a time of 23:26.
Carly Bennett grabbed third place in 27:06, followed by teammates Yasmin Riazi in fifth place in 29:07, Christy Ly in sixth in 30:15, Maajda Louaddi in seventh in 34:42, and Jessica Medina in ninth in 44:12.
“Samantha Solis also participated in the race with a finishing time of 31:29, but she, along with a few Lynn runners, got a little off-course, which resulted in an unofficial time,” said veteran RHS head coach Katie Sinnott.
“Despite the heat, the team did well,” noted Sinnott. “It feels good to have full teams racing again after such a different season last year.
“Rocio Gonzalez Castillo is our strongest runner and looks to continue her racing successes,” Sinnott continued. “Returning seniors Carly Bennett and Maajda Louaddi provide leadership and support to our new runners, juniors Christy Ly and Jessica Medina, sophomore Yasmin Riazi, and freshman Samantha Solis.
“The team looks to build on this meet and grow over the season,” Sinnott added.
The girls are scheduled to meet Lynn English this week and will make the short journey down the Parkway to Everett next Wednesday.
