Girls' Cross Country

2014 Girls Cross Country Team

2014 Season Review

One of the deepest girls’ cross country teams in recent history advanced to the semi-state for just the sixth time ever.  The team moved on to semi-state after a fourth-place regional finish and the lowest sectional team score in 14 years.  This year’s team saw 20 runners post times faster than last season’s number seven varsity runner.  Three girls ran top 20 times in school history, topped by Emily Barron, who ran the fastest 5K by a junior in program history.  At the All-Catholic race, the five varsity runners combined for the eighth-best team time in program history.  The freshman captured the team title at the Marion County race, earning the first Marion County running team title in Roncalli history.  Barron ran her way to All-Sectional honors, as did freshman Olivia Origer.  Freshman Kate Morse was the team’s top finisher in both races (ninth in the sectional, 18th in the regional) and was All-Sectional and All-Regional.  She was also named the team’s Most Valuable Freshman.  Barron collected the team’s MVP award, the Mental Attitude award and was named Academic All-State by the Indiana Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches (IATCCC).  Junior Mary Dearing was named the team’s Most Valuable Junior, as well as the team’s Most Improved Runner.  Claire Whalen earned the Most Valuable Sophomore award and Makenzie Quinn won the Most Valuable Senior award.
