Emma, shown above at the finish, continued her eye-popping success by winning with a meet record of 19:00.70. The mark previously belonged to 2013 PC grad Catie Skinner, who set it as a soph in 2010 with a time of 19:10.07.

Also finishing in the Top 20 for coach Andy Zuccotti were juniors Mary McDavid (15, 21:15.50) and Abby Zwall (Emma's sister, 16, 21:19.20), and sophs Alicia Newman (18, 21:26.70) and Sophia Solomon (20, 21:34.00).

The boys placed 11th among 14 schools with 269 points. PC's top runner was frosh Drew Gillespie (39, 18:52.50).
