The Greens Farms Academy cross country team saw four of its runners earn All-New England status during Saturday’s running of the New England Division 3 championships in Carlisle, Mass.

Two girls finished in the top 10 and two boys notched top 20 finishes for the Dragon.

Sophomore Grace Horton was seventh (21:09) and junior Georgia Palmgren was ninth (21:33) in the girls race while Sam MacDonald was 19th (18:14) and Brendan Howard was 20th (18:17) in the boys race to earn All-New England honors.

The Dragons placed fourth in the boys race with 134 points. Canterbury won the title with 107.

“The fourth-place finish by the boys was a tremendous feat,” Coach Glen Colello said. “Sam and Brendan turned in strong and gutsy performances. Grace and Georgia have been so steady all season and Saturday was no different.”
