Close Battles Coming To Bowdoin Park & VCP - NY & NE Regional Previews

NE Girls Individuals

After strong races from PA athletes over the past few years, the front of the race looks to have shifted around the region for 2017.  Julia Robitaille put her name on the map after winning at the New England Championships, and now comes in as the favorite.  New Jersey has two stars of their own, as the Hebner sisters went 1& 4 at NJ MOC's.  Monica Hebner won the race by 5-seconds over the two time defending champion, and should be riding high into regionals.  Splitting the sisters in that race was Nicole Vanasse, and she will look to be placing high up here as well.  Elizabeth Mancini rounds out your State Champions here, as she won the PA-AAA race at their State Meet.

Rounding out your top seeds is Maggie Donohue, who was runner up at the Massachusetts MOC's just last weekend.  She could take a big jump given the right situation.
