THETFORD — Two seniors — Middlebury Union High School’s Max Moulton and Mount Abraham’s Natalie May — were the top local cross-country runners in Saturday’s 23rd annual Woods Trail Run at Thetford Academy.
Moulton crossed the finish line in the boys’ 5-kilometer race in 18:19, good for 54th among the more than 700 male runners from schools all over New England.
May’s time of 23:36 in the girls’ 5K placed her 154th among more than 600 female runners. The top MUHS runner in the girls’ division was Emily Fleming, who was 172nd in 23:52.
Otter Valley’s Connor Gallipo led a non-scoring contingent of four OV runners with a strong effort, taking 94th in the boys’ race and cracking 19 minutes on the challenging course (18:45.8). The lone OV girl in her race, Maria Wiles, took 339th in 26:08.
Overall, the Tiger boys were 24th out of more than 50 teams, and the Eagles were 49th in a competition won by South Burlington. Eliot Brett led Mount Abe by taking 310th in 20:29.
The Eagle girls were 35th, and the Tiger girls were 40th. Champlain Valley took second behind New Hampshire’s Coe-Brown Northwood in the girls’ team scoring.
