On Saturday, September 25, 2021, the George School Cougars hosted the 68th annual George School Cross-Country Invitational.
A total of five hundred and thirteen athletes from eighteen neighboring public and independent high schools traveled to Newtown to compete in the girls’ and boys’ varsity and junior varsity races, and the energy on campus was felt throughout.
It was Stephane Bronsard ’22 that led the way for the George School varsity boys’ with a 10th place finish overall, followed shortly after by Zane Wasicko ’22. Westtown School senior William Nagy took first overall in the boys’ varsity race, followed shortly after by Germantown Friends School sophomore PJ Kresloff and Haddon Heights High School junior Jack Bolling, respectively.
Maia Mascari ’22 led the charge for the George School girls’ varsity team with a 36th place overall finish. Germantown Friends School senior Anna Macdonald took the first-place crown with a time of 18:59 and was followed in the second and third place slots by Penn Charter freshman Alli DeLisi and Friends’ Central freshman Olivia Cieslak, respectively.
The George School Cross-Country Invitational has a rich history of excellence, friendly competition, and excitement that continues to evolve through the years. The cross-country athletes and coaches are thrilled to have regular competition back after the challenging past year and half and are looking forward to the remainder of the fall season.
