The Cuyahoga Falls girls cross country team placed seventh with 103 points in the 11-team Division I race at the Pat Ritchie Cross Country Invitational Saturday at Walsh Jesuit High School.

Chardon easily won the competition with 33 points.

"There was not a lot to take from this race," Black Tigers head coach Dan Scourfield said. "Because of the weather, the course broke down pretty quickly. But the girls competed and finished the race."

Junior Meredith Gallagher led Falls with a 17th-place time of 21:59.

Senior Valerie Deighton captured 27th in 22:40 and senior Melody Lewis finished 32nd in 22:53.

Rounding out the top five for the Black Tigers were freshman Elsa Lowry (39th, 23:07) and junior Chelsea Huffman (50th, 23:43).

Junior Nadia Luksza ran a personal-best time of 24:01 in the varsity race. Freshman Olivia Smith led the way in the junior varsity race with a 15th-place, personal-best clocking of 23:58.
