Junior becomes rst North Salem
athlete to capture title


North Salem junior Ava Jolley nished rst in the Westchester County Cross Coun-
try Championship Meet on Oct. 26 at Croton Point Park. She became the rst North
Salem athlete to ever win the county meet.

Jolley clocked a personal best time of 18:09. As the race progressed, she lengthened
her lead and pulled away from New Rochelle’s Kaitlyn Casas (18:35.6), who took

“ e best thing that happened today for Ava is that she was challenged in the front
end of the race by a New Rochelle runner,” said coach Chris Gould. “She has great
instinct with when to make a move to create separation and she did that between the

rst and second mile and held her 5:51 mile pace for a decisive, historical win. at is a
10 second personal best and she currently has the top Class C time in New York State.”

Juliette Intrieri placed 21st in 18:09 for the girls, who were 14th overall out of 28

Henry James was the top nisher for the Tiger boys, nishing in 106th out of 237
runners. All of North Salem’s boys competitors clocked personal best times.

e Tigers will compete in the Section 1 championship meet on Nov. 9 at Bowdoin

Gould said the boys team “will continue to work and improve” while the girls squad
is looking to put themselves in the mix at sectionals.

“It is a challenge the girls have embraced and we will see where it takes us,” Gould
said. “Bowdoin Park is a vastly di erent course compared to Croton Point Park. We’ll
put the work in to face the hills with everything on the line.”
