I’m impressed with how the team responded to the rolling hills.”In the girl’s freshman/sophomore race, BD’s Marisa Kimerer was the top finisher with a third place time of 24:05. Carrie Wielfaert was fifth for BD with a time of 24:13 while teammate Morgan Tilley was right behind, finishing sixth with a time of 25:01.
