The 2018 MICDS Girl’s Cross Country team fielded the largest roster, 44 runners, in program history. Led by Captains Jane Baur ‘19, Elsa Sjogren ‘19, and Grace Lee ‘19, the team finished in 8th place at the State Championship meet to round out the season. Palmer Mihalevich ’20 was the top team performer with a 26th place finish, one place outside the cutoff for All-State honors. To qualify for the state meet, the Rams finished 2nd at the District Championship. Six of the seven girls—Mihalevich, Athena Theranos ‘20, Riley Noonan ‘22, Ana Larsen ‘19, Simrin Phatak ‘21 and Morgan Weber ‘21 — earned All-District Honors based on their individual results there. The team also finished second at the Metro League Championship with three girls earning All-Metro Conference honors: Annalisa Goot ’21, Sarah Reed ’20 and Alden Small ’22. Larsen won the Harriet Green Award as the team’s most inspiring runner.
