While Coun­cil Rock North se­nior Kate Scott (18:54) won the in­di­vid­ual tro­phy af­ter cross­ing line in just un­der 19 min­utes, the lady Fal­cons swept the next seven places with se­nior Sarah Sar­gent out of the lineup with an undis­closed ill­ness.

The run­ner-up in this race in 2011, Sar­gent (18:37) and then se­nior Ann Her­man (18:22) led Penns­bury to the SONL cham­pi­onship last year. Sar­gent won the race in 2009 as a fresh­man.
