Gov. Mifflin’s Kaitlyn Highduch wins PTXC race at Kutztown

Gov. Mifflin sophomore Kaitlyn Highduch placed first Saturday morning in the PTXC 12.2 cross country race at Kutztown University.

Highduch covered the 3.1-mile course in 18:54.4, the only girl to run under 19 minutes. The event was called 12.2 because the 12th annual race was canceled last season due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Highduch was one of three Berks County runners to finish in the top 20. Gov. Mifflin’s Lydia Drago finished 15th in 20:00.1 and Oley Valley’s Ava Lottig was 20th in 20:19.3.

Exeter senior Alex Holbrook was the top Berks finisher in the boys race, placing sixth in 16:06.7

Zach Zerbe of Gov. Mifflin finished 19th in 16:46.1.

At the Abington Invitational, Twin Valley’s Laura Posh finished third in 20:07 behind Mount St. Joseph Academy teammates Ella Woehlcke (19:33) and Maggie Murphy (19:40).
