This week’s “Athlete Of The Week” goes to Taegan Field (’17).

Field is a freshman who has already began to help the Girls Cross Country team immensely.

This week she ran a 21:06 time to finish third for the Cougars in a “shut-out” of Eastern in which East earned a perfect score of 15. Her efforts also helped the team beat Washington Township soundly.

“We have our strongest line-up in years and look to advance past Sectionals,” said head coach Anthony Maniscalco.

The team currently has a record of 2-1 with the two wins coming over Eastern and Washington Township and a close loss to Lenape.
