MUHS, VUHS runners do well at Essex meet

ESSEX — Solid results for Middlebury Union High School highlighted local runners’ efforts at Saturday’s Essex Invitational Cross Country Meet, at which Tiger senior Sam Hodges finished fifth, and top-20 efforts by freshman Camille Malhotra and senior Caroline Kimble helped the MUHS girls take sixth, the best team finish among Division II schools participating.
