With five runners finishing in the top 10, the Ridgefield girls cross country team won the FCIAC Central Region championship Wednesday at Waveny Park. The Tigers had 23 points to easily beat runner-up Wilton (44 points). Katie Rector led Ridgefield with a third-place overall finish in a time of 15 minutes, 10 seconds. \u201cIt was really nice to have this at the end of the season; it\u2019s a nostalgic race we get to do and it was really fun getting together with my team in a championship environment,\u201d Rector said. \u201cEveryone came out ready to race and we all finished.\u201d Teammate Georgia Keller was right behind Rector, placing fourth overall in 15:13. \u201cI\u2019ve been kind of having breathing problems all season that made me be nervous for races,\u201d Keller said. \u201cSo today I wanted to go out hard, but not too hard, so my breathing wouldn\u2019t flare up. I was just trying to stick with Katie, she\u2019s been pulling me through the whole season.\u201d Rory McGrath (sixth, 15:47), Deirdre Flanagan (seventh, 15:47), and Regan McGrath (eighth, 16:13) also placed in the top 10 and contributed to Ridgefield\u2019s team score. \u201cEveryone put up a great time for our team today,\u201d Rector said. \u201cIt\u2019s a great ending to our season.\u201d Notes: Wilton\u2019s Emily Mrakovcic finished first overall in a time of 15:00. Amanda Graham of McMahon was second in 15:04.
