For the fifth consecutive year the North Shore Women’s Cross-Country team has won the Conference Championship. Even this accomplishment appeared routine for this historic program and it represents a level of consistency and discipline not often seen.

Not to be outdone was the Junior Varsity team who swept the competition in their race as they placed 1-5. Top performers included race winner and Freshman Olivia Statile, Junior Nicole Milani, Sophomores Gillian McGovern, and Monica Winski and Freshman Alexandra Osman.
