Rounding out the top ten for MIfflin County was Conrad Coffey with a time of 18:20.

On the girls side, Kylee Cubbison also finished first with a final time of 19:45 while teammate Addie Parson was the only other top ten finisher with a time of 20:57.

“The Chambersburg course is difficult and they haven’t seen a course like this ever,” said MIfflin County girls coach Jenn Freed. “These kids have never ran here. It’s a brand spanking new course for them. The terrain is rocky, a lot of ruts and tree stumps and a lot of hills. But the girls came out strong today. They had a plan in their heads and they went out and attacked it. They were strong, focused and new what they needed to do.”Kylie Cubbison won. Chambersburg’s a tough team.”

The MC cross country team will be back in action next week.
