A great County Championship to finish third in the Open scoring and first in Class C, Bronxville coach Jim Mitchell said. An excellent race by Meredith to win and tremendous efforts by Hilary and Nicola (Phillips) to hit personal records and score in the Open classification and a very nice PR by Caroline in the (race) walk.
