The Shelter Island School’s cross country team, long dormant, but revived this year,  began with a flourish yesterday.

The boys and girls teams traveled to Sunken Meadow to take on Port Jefferson, with the girls bringing home a big win. The final score, with Shelter Island on top, was 22-23 (low score wins) and the top three finishers were all Island girls.

Freshman, Lindsey Gallagher won  the 3-mile hilly race in 21:07, followed by her sister, 7th grader Emma Gallagher, in 21:45, and freshman Lindsey Binder in 21:48.  The rest of the scorers for the Indians were Francesca Frasco in 24:58 and Elizabeth Cummings in 26:25.

The boys lost to Port Jefferson in their opener, but had strong performances by senior Sawyer Clark with a 19:29.  For the same 3-miles, Joshua Green clocked in at  20:37 and Jack Kimmelmann at 21:45.
