PIHS girls junior varsity cross country team takes top spots during last Saturday’s meet
Julia Ouellette
Lydia Bragdon ’27 takes off for the PIHS cross country team in Caribou on September 9 at the start of the JV race.

On Saturday, September 9, the Presque Isle High School girls junior varsity cross country team met with teams from around the state at Caribou High School. PIHS raced against Houlton/GHCA, John Bapst, Old Town, Caribou, Brewer, Ellsworth, Hermon and MSSM. The race was outside on grassy terrain on an incline over many hills. The runners expressed it was a tough race due to heat and the race being primarily uphill. “It was painful and horrible,” Lydia Bragdon ’27 said. “I couldn’t walk the next morning,” Taylor York ’27 said. 

Despite the tough environment, athletes Julia Bartley ’24, Mackensie Kinney ’26 and Makenna Walsh ’27 managed to place in the top five. They received t-shirts while the first place winner, Julia Bartley, received a whoopie pie.

Congratulations to the PIHS team and anyone who participated in the race for overcoming many obstacles and being recognized.
