Ansonia XC runners perform well


GREENVILLE – The Ansonia cross country team performed well at the Greenville Treaty City Invitational this past Saturday morning.

“I was very pleased with the effort from the kids at the Treaty City Invitational,” said Ansonia cross country coach Jason Wright. “We were blessed with good weather as compared to last year. The course was really challenging even though they had a lot of frustrations probably from the construction.”

In the junior high girls, Peyton Billenstein received a medal with a time of 13:37.

Ethan Sparks was just 3-seconds shy of a junior high school record with a time of 13:01 and Matthew Lee finished with a 13:31 for the Tigers cross country team.

“Greenville did a great job of just making the course challenging and fun for the kids.” Wright stated. “I was really pleased with our kid’s effort – their times were reflective of the hard work that they have been putting in.”
