Deer Isle—The cross country team competed in the Hancock County Championship meet at Blue Hill last week. Brendan Penfold ran the course in 16:36 and came in third behind John Hassett and Ollie Dillon of George Stevens Academy at their home course. Ian Cust came in 34th overall of 40 runners, 9th among junior varsity runners; and Trevor Cochrane came in 35th overall, 10th among JV runners.
On the girls side, Ella Marshall ran her first race and Soozin Cha also ran. They ran near the end of the pack, but it is good experience for them.
Saturday, October 15, is the Penobscot Valley Championships to be held in Old Town at 12 p.m..
