Finishing first for the Falcons was sophomore Emily Morgan Henderson with a time of 28:29, followed closely by senior Alexis Yanda in 28:33. The next three girls to finish were sophomore Deserae Mena in 29:13, sophomore McKenzie Mordhorst in 30:11, and junior Ashiyah Wheeler in 30:12. The 6th and 7th place finishers for the Falcons were sophomore Paula Dellinger and junior Olivia Garlick, respectively. “It was a hot day for a 5k race and I was impressed with the girls’ positive attitudes. Several of the girls ran together to push each other and that’s always great to see,” said Coach Beam.
