The Hart Girls ran away with the title today at the Regional Meet held at Benzie. Besting a field of 13 teams, they finished 1st with 19 points. Leading the way was regional champion Audrey Enns racing to a personal best @ 18:26. Following Audrey was Savannah Ackley 2nd @ 18:40 (SR), Lynae Ackley 3rd @ 18:45 (SR), Brenna Aerts 4th @ 18:54 (PR), MacKenzie Stitt 9th @ 19:49, Lauren VanderLaan 14th @ 19:55 (PR), and Layla Creed 18th @ 20:12 (PR). The first 4 girls were within 28 seconds of each other at the finish. They have showed that being patient at the beginning of the race and running within their limits is paying huge dividends. Congratulations to all-regional runners Aurey Enns, Savannah Ackley, Lynae Ackley Brenna Aerts, MacKenzie Stitt, and Lauren VanderLaan. They are headed to the State Finals held at Michigan International Speedway next Saturday. Proud to be a Pirate!!!
