Carlisle Cross Country teams competed at the Mid-Penn Championships this weekend and came through with some great performances.

The boys continued their fantastic season and had no issues qualifying for Districts as a team.  Leading the way for the Herd were our duo of Ray Bondy and Kevin Shank who placed 2nd and 3rd overall.  Briar Thompson also earned All-Conference honors.  Rounding out the team scoring were Andrew Diehl and Colby Williams.  Way to go Herd!

On Tuesday, the Carlisle Cross-Country teams traveled to Cumberland Valley to face both the Eagles and the Mifflin County Huskies.

On the girls side it was a split decision.  The Lady Herd defeated Mifflin County 26-30, but fell to CV by a 16-47 score.  This ended the Girls' 5 year streak of dual meet wins over Cumberland Valley.  The last time CV beat Carlisle girls in a League dual meet was in 2015.  Leading the way for our girls were Hannah Hanger, Jayde Thomas, Olivia Doty, Eva Leatherman, and Aubrey Mackey.  The girls are now 3-2 on the season.

The Boys handled both teams without any issues.  It was Carlisle over Mifflin County by a 18-39 score, and Carlisle over Cumberland Valley by a score of 20-36.  Leading the way for the Herd were Ray Bondy, Kevin Shank, Andrew Diehl, Briar Thompson, Ryan Brody and Colby Williams.  The Herd are now the only undefeated team left in the Commonwealth and have secured at least a share of the division crown.  This marks the SIXTH consecutive Division Title for the Carlisle Boys Cross-Country team!
