Sans Sargent, Pennsbury repeats
Missing their top runner, the Pennsbury girls rallied around adversity to successfully defend their Suburban One National League (SONL) cross country title last Friday at Lehigh rni- versity.
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.
Pennsbury’s Hannah Molloy, seen here in the 2011 Flying Pig 5K held annually in the Garden State, is one of four freshmen who finished in the top 10 for the lady Falcons Oct. 19 in the SOL National cross country
