Top Ten Returnees From 2016 Meet

The Leonardtown girls looked like a much-improved team at the Seahawk Invitational last weekend, placing fifth out of 26 teams. Leading the way were two newcomers: freshman Nelle Ray and junior transfer Emily Imhof (above). Imhof finished tenth at last year's SMAC Championships as a member of Great Mills.

The Calvert girls also started off their 2017 cross country season on a strong note at last weekend's Seahawk Invitational, finishing just two spots behind Leonardtown in the team scores. Junior Sydney Friedel - the fourth-fastest returnee from last year's conference championships - led a team of six underclassmen with a bright future ahead of them.

The lone Charles County representative on the list, North Point's Mya Rivenburg had some big races as a sophomore last year, including a third-place finish in the afternoon section at the Spiked Shoe Invitational. With Rachel Nueslein having graduated Rivenburg will take over as the lead runner for a North Point team looking to make it back to the state meet as a team in 2017.

The Great Mills girls were the biggest challenge to Northern at last year's 3A South regional, but with three of their top five finishers from that meet gone, they will need runners like rising sophomore Rosemary Wild to improve upon an impressive sixth-place finish if they are to challenge Northern once again.
