While Erica Gunden ran the Tyler State Park course for the final time in the regular season, Sara Kennel and Isa Rodriguez were getting their first look at the 5-kilometers that serves as the Bicentennial Athletic League championship site.
Kennel found the course to her liking. The freshman took third overall in 22:58. She ran evenly over the 3.1 miles, and saved her fastest mile for her final mile to close quickly down the stretch.
Gunden, the senior co-captain for the Dock girls, continues to lower her times. She clipped nearly two minutes off her final scrimmage time to run 24:03 for 11th place.
Rodriguez, a freshman, looked strong through two miles. She continues to discover just how far she can push her pace. She finished in 25:11 for 15th place.
The Dock girls resume training in preparation for a look at the state championship site in Hershey, Pa. They will compete in the Foundation Invitational on the state course on Sept. 23.
