WILBRAHAM – Despite an overwhelming 41-19 loss to host Minnechaug Tuesday, Westfield managed to post several season best times.
Sophie Gronbeck (22:35), Carley Censabella (22:36), Hannah Giffune (24:12), Julie Guarente (24:37), Ellie Dufraine (25:17), Amaya Diana (25:40), Samantha Tuttle (26:07), Kaleigh Florek (26:36), Amanda Haluch (26:39), and Allie Davis (26:46) finished 1-10 for Westfield.
“Many of the new girls have learned a lot from earlier races and have shown a lot more confidence in their training,” Westfield coach Michael Rowbotham said. “A 3.1 mile (race) is no longer daunting. They are starting out strong and racing their own race, rather than worrying about covering the distance or running in small packs.”
Several of the Bomber girls recorded season best times, including Karolina Gurulyova, Paige Neylon, Carly Censabella, Ellie Dufraine, Ally Davis, Casey Becker, and Amanda Haluch.
