Tecumseh’s girls scored 57 points to place first while Blissfield followed with a score of 95.

“The girls have been running hard for the past few practices so I was impressed on how well they ran today,” said Tecumseh coach Jill Stockford. “Blissfield always runs tough on their home course and we knew we would have to compete well to match them.”

Dundee finished third (109); Onsted, fourth (131); Britton-Deerfield, fifth (143) and Adrian, sixth (147).

Jessica Tebbetts led Tecumseh with a second place time of 21:14 while teammate Katie Kasper placed third in 21:15.

I am once again pleased with how the team ran without two of our top five runners out with injury,” said Tecumseh coach Eddy Foley.

Tecumseh’s girls (66) placed second behind Grosse Ile (61) at the Monroe Jefferson Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 22, at Sterling State Park.
