TORRINGTON: Led by their two stars, Ariana Santos and Gabrielle Vega and a key fifth place finish by Anna Clinkscales, the Torrington girls cross country team handed rival Holy Cross only their second loss of the season on Tuesday afternoon at Torrington High School.

Santos (19:38) and Vega (19:45) beat the Holy Cross team of Layne Carter (20:50) and Julia Mecca (21:47) in dominating fashion while Clinkscales (21:51) took the all -important fifth spot by 14 seconds over Siena Erichetti (22:05) to secure the win.

The top 10 spots all went to either Raider or Crusader runners as the two team shut out both Wilby and Seymour where it mattered in the points.

The Raiders improve to 7-3 while the Crusaders are now 9-2.
