Runners with HopsAna Markovina (Jericho) - 130?,  Kayla Schramm (Goshen) - 126, Una Boylan (Pearl River) - 121, Ava Black (Bronxville) - 117, Mackenzie Setton (Jericho) - 110, Maddy Williams (Bronxville) - 106, Julia Bell (Ward Melville) - 103, Sarah Petitjean (Chatham) 103, Caroline Jankowich (Classical) - 102, Madyson Moroney (Pearl River) - 101,

Overview:  This race could be kind of an introduction of Jericho senior Ana Markovina to the wider XC world outside of Nassau County and a supremely flat Eisenhower Park course, but VCP's back hills could be a tester. Goshen's Kayla Schramm got  her best rating in a 2nd place at the Suffern Invite, while Pearl River's Una Boylan ran her best on the tough Sunken Meadow course at Bob Pratt. Pearl River is the decided favorite here, but the Pirates have a long history with the quickly developing Bronxville squad, and Ward Melville's customary machine seems to be kicking into gear after a win at St. Anthony's.
