Section 3 is no slouch for Class D schools, as South Lewis saw their Top 2 girls under 20-mins. The race won by Hannah Ielfield at 19:06.1, Lizzy Lucason (Camden) would take second fifteen seconds later. But it was the depth of CNS, led by freshman Kate Putman, that would bring home the Team Title.
