    On Saturday, Oct. 7, Hershey closed out its season at the Gettysburg Invitational, where its girls won with 66 points.

    Placing for the Trojans were Andi Demko (2nd – 18:50), Faith Mark (3rd – 19:13), Katie Jones (18th – 19:51), Olivia Wilson (19th – 19:51), Brooke Geyer (25th – 20:15), Grace Murray (36th – 20:30) and Katie Ceneviva (82nd – 21:45).

    Both Demko and Mark were medalists.

    “The girls ran well as a team. Faith getting third showed a lot of heart, that was a difference maker. Brooke also finishing 25th was big,” Hershey coach Al Fricke said. “The fifth runner is very important in an invitational like this. The girls are having a great time and really enjoy being with each other. It shows in their performance.”
