PIAA District 3 Cross Country Championships: Girls – LebCo Results

On an unseasonably warm autumn day, forty runners from LebCo competed at the District 3 Cross Country Championships at Big Spring High School.  This contingent included four full teams who qualified based on their races at the Lancaster Lebanon Lebanon and Mid Penn Championships. Each of the county’s six schools were represented in the race.  To advance to States, an individual or team has to qualify at the District meet.

For our local racers, there will now be one full team and an individual racer who will be running at Hershey next Saturday.  Annville-Cleona finished 3rd, claiming the final team spot in the AA classification.  In doing so, they had two top twenty finishers, Mackenzie Stellmach and Emily Maag, who were each awarded medals for their individual performances.  Joining the representatives from the 17003 will be Cedar Crest’s Eliana Schneider who qualified for States in AAA based on her 24th place finish.

Below are the full results for each LebCo runner that competed broken up by classification.  Underneath are the combined race results, regardless of classification.


The LebCo Girls results from Districts can be found here.

In the AA competition, one team will advance to States after Annville-Cleona finished 3rd overall and just 2 points behind 2nd place Wyomissing.  For the Dutchmen, they will be making the trip back to Hershey as a AA team again this year after winning Districts after making the bump from A in 2022.  Their efforts were anchored by medalists Mackenzie Stellmach and Emily Maag, but it took strong races from the rest of the top five to push them up the leaderboard.

After the race, an interview with the Annville-Cleona’s lead runner Mackenzie Stellmach was conducted on behalf of  Mackenzie Stellmach said going into the race that the team “had a good mindset coming in and they knew that they could do it.”  She is hoping to carry this same mentality into States, of which she said with a big smile on her face, “I’m really pumped up.  We’re going to do amazing.”

ELCO freshman Reagan Zwally also had a tremendous race, but just missed the cut to advance to next week’s State Championship.
