Last Thursday the O’Fallon girl’s cross country team travelled to Belleville West to compete in the Southwest Conference Championship Meet.  

The varsity girls took a team second place finish led by first team all-conference performances by sophomore Sophia Parker with a third-place finish (PR of 18:10.30) and a seventh-place finish by freshman Julia Monson.  Junior Emma Jordan finished eighth earning second team all-conference honors along with fellow junior Kimberly Davenport’s 13th place and sophomore Maddy Vorce’s 14th place finish.  Junior Sophie Wichlac (15th) and sophomore Kiley McElroy (21st) rounded out the varsity team.  

The junior varsity girls dominated the competition to take home the team first place.  Six of the seven girls, sophomore Peyton Mutters (3rd) senior Taylor Peck (4th) freshmen Mary Kate Trelow (5th) and Olivia Anderson (6th) sophomore Brianne Berres (8th) and freshman Krissy Sharpe (9th) finished in the top ten with the seventh runner Senior Julia Gundlach finishing 11th.
