MC girls XC opens season at BVI Invitational

REEDSVILLE – The Mifflin County Girls Cross Country team began the racing season at the Big Valley Invitational on Saturday.

Amilia Coffey, led the pack with a great start to the season coming in at 22:06.

“I expect her to continue to lead the team throughout the season and am really pleased with where she is at. She has her goal for the season in focus; now we just need to work toward it in small increments and put in the hard work,” said MIfflin County coach Neil Breneman.

Ava Kratzer and Alexis Anderson filled the 2nd and 3rd place positions for the team and

“The have been working hard throughout the summer to prepare for this season, said Breneman.

“They are starting ahead of where they were last year at this time, and I have no reason to believe they won’t progress again. That progression will move them closer to Amilia and make a strong “front 3” on the course.”

“But, we can’t discount the rest of the girls. Many of them showed the capability of moving up into the top spots. Mary Kanagy debuted today in her first 5k and shattered her time trial time from just a week ago, crossing the line at 25:38. She looks super strong ,and as she continues to develop I am excited to see what she is able to do. 

Irelynn Milligan ran in her first varsity race and is showing the potential I know she has.

Cameran Shuey debuted today and has put in hard work throughout the summer to give her a great start to her first cross country season.

“I was really pleased with how close many of our girls crossed the finish line with each other,” said Breneman. “Now we just need to move each of them toward faster times that produce results for our team score.”

For the JV girls Kahlen McCracken led the Huskies at 27:44 showing she may be pushing for a varsity role throughout the season. Kahlen went out with guts today running a very fast first mile.

“I have never doubted that she has speed. As her stamina develops, she will start dropping her overall time and serve as a valuable member of the team,” said Breneman.

The Varsity Girls finished in 6th place in AAA.
