Hargrave Earns Impressive Victory over North Cross

Benjamin J Veshi

The Hargrave Tigers defended the ODAC on Tuesday afternoon as they triumphed over VIC opponent, North Cross, by a final score of 51-25.

The Tigers, competing in their third meet of the season, have continued to show strong progress both collectively and individually. On Tuesday’s meet, Head Coach Amanda Weishaar noted, “This meet was an opportunity to try some things out, and some things worked and some things did not. But it is still early in the season and with the majority of the team being made up of newcomers, this is to be expected. Mistakes are proof that you are trying and I’m proud of our effort!”
