That moniker now applies to both the Mathews High School boys’ and girls’ cross country teams following the teams’ performances last Thursday at the Group 1, Region A championships at the Eastern State course in Williamsburg.
The win gave the girls back-to-back regional titles; last year, the MHS boys finished second in the region.
Nine complete teams competed in the girls’ race: Mathews, Northumberland, Middlesex, Washington and Lee, West Point, Northampton, Lancaster, Essex and Rappahannock.
The first Lady Devil girl to cross the finish line was Abbie Hudgins, who came in fifth with a time of 22:59. She was immediately followed by Brittany Ottarson (23:04) in sixth place. Sisters Rileigh (23:19) and Avery Betz (24:07) were next, placing ninth and 12th, respectively. The team’s score was rounded out by Connie Johnson (24:35), Jaysen Hall (24:44) and Skylar Lewis (25:12). The Region A MVP was Jenifer Broglin of Washington and Lee.
