Girls Junior Varsity Cross Country, Girls Varsity Cross Country · Girls XC Wins Bredeweg Invite

West Ottawa’s annual Bredeweg Invite looked a little different Saturday in this COVID19 era – limited to only 6 local teams (WO, Zeeland East and West, Holland Christian, Saugatuck and Hamilton) rather than the typical 20+ teams that attend. That didn’t stop the girls cross country team from winning there annual home invite with 38 pts, 19 better than their closest opponent.

Abby Bonnema (Jr.) came away with her first career win in 20:21 followed by her sister Sophie (Jr.) in 20:33. Megan Postma (So.) was 6th, Lillian Reiner (So.) 10th, and Abby Green (Jr.) 19th were the top five scorers for the Panthers. Freshman Lauren Catton made her 5k debut in the Varsity race as well with an impressive performance!
