2007 Groton Girls’ Cross Country Divison 3 New England Champions
There surely have been years when crafting an end of season description required dusting off an old end-of-season description and changing the names and places and highlights, reinforcing the same old punch line: Groton’s team was filled with lots of talent, and the team acquitted itself well against ISL competition. From the start of this season, however, it seemed clear that this was going to be what many would describe as a “building year” because more running talent graduated than matriculated, and this team was to be entering into competition with a number of excellent running programs in the ISL. The sea of pre-season data suggested that this team would be doing well to have a .500 season and a top five finish at the New England Championships. In projections, however, the peculiar and wonderful qualities of this group of athletes could not be figured in; this team defied all expectations, improved dramatically, and defined themselves (again) as the best small school team in New England at the close of a wonderful season.
2007 Phillips Andover NEPSTA Division I Girls' Cross Country Champions
This was a spectacular day for the Andover Girls Cross Country Team. For the third year in a row both the Varsity and JV teams are the NEPSTA Division I Cross Country Champions!!
In spite of ominous weather reports, the day was perfect for running - sunny and cool. The 3.1 mile course at Choate Rosemary Hall was a great course! It was challenging and tested the runner's ability to balance the need to go out fast with the need to save enough energy for the tough hills in the last 2 miles. With a nice downhill finish, those runners with a good final kick were rewarded.
