Four members of the Wellsboro Cross Country team were named to the NTL All-Star team on Friday, November 11.

Junior Anna Bleggi and sophomore Aidan Perry were both first team selections while junior Connor Brought and freshman Kayla Mengee were second team picks. Bleggi (20:38) and Perry (16:32) were the team's top runners while Brought (17:40) and Mengee (21:25) haad the second best times on the team.

"I’m very proud of our runners that are being recognized as All-Stars," said head coach Ron Brought. "Aidan and Anna were all-stars last year and its impressive that they continue to perform at this top, all-star, level. Their performance helped Wellsboro have a very successful season. Just as important as it is to have top runners in every meet is the need for additional top five runners. Wellsboro has that with Connor and Kayla. Their performance this season was equally important to Wellsboro's success within the NTL. Next season looks great with all of our all-stars returning. I'm very confident they will only get stronger and help their team mates perform to their fullest and also become all-stars."

WellsboroAthletics.com would like to congratulate Aidan, Anna, Connor, and Kayla on their selections and thank them for all their hard work and dedication during the season.
