THE FIGHTING IRISH MAKE A STATEMENT AT THE STATE FINALS

Hagey state

Freshman Theresa Hagey individually finished in 8th place overall to become the 150th Fighting Irish cross country or track and field athlete to earn a state place and a spot on the wall of honor in the Cosgrove building. Theresa saved her best race for last as she clocked a time of 18:44 to lead the way for the Lady Irish to a 4th place team finish.

Theresa was followed by Leah Lisle who finished in 24th place to earn All Ohio status. Nina Zraik. Quincy Powers and Elaina Mendiola rounded out the scoring for the Fighting Irish.

On the Men’s side, Alex Phillip earned All Ohio honors with his 22nd finish. The story of the day was the fantastic finish push in the last 400 meters by the next 4 Fighting Irish runners (Matt Sollenberger, Colin Scahill, Patrick white and Sean O’Brien) as they combined to pass over 30 runners to give the Irish a strong 3rd place finish.
