Chelsea Beach Middle School Cross Country teams competed at Manly W. Bennett Park in Hamburg Township on Wednesday.
The boys varsity team placed 4th out of 9 teams. Notable finishers for the team were Sam Clifton, placing 18th, and Leo Alafita, placing 28th, who both ran well in the heat.
The boys reserve team led by Remington Manning, placing 14th, and Jack Meehan, placing 18th, moved up well through the field as did others on the team, resulting in the team finishing 3rd out of 9 teams.
The girls varsity team moved up through most of the race in good fashion. Eve Wagner, placing 40th, and Tessa Smith, placing 50th, ran tough through some discomfort to help the team. The girls team continues to make improvements.
Next week the team heads to Stockbridge for its middle school invitational on Saturday, Oct. 1.
