The Stockbridge cross country team took part in the Greater Lansing Cross Country Championships at Ledge Meadows Golf Course in Grand Ledge Saturday and had a good showing in the large event.
The GLCCC is different then most invitationals as it does not divide the schools into divisions by size. The top seven runners from D4 schools compete against runners from large D1 schools.
The girls finished 13th out of 31 schools at the event.
Stockbridge finished with 331 points in the race won by DeWitt with 138.
Rylee Tolson finished third overall for the Panthers with a time 18:24.5. The winner of the race Jayden Theis was the defending Division 2 state champion and a four-time winner of the Lansing race, finishing in 17:59.2. Kaitly Hines from DeWitt was just .6 seconds ahead of Tolson in 18:23.9.
The race had 231 girls running in the event.
Brianna Hill finished 44th with a season-best time of 20:54.8, while Kaitelyn Walker set a PR of 20:57.9 to finish 46th.
