The Erin Award is given annually to the best freshmen girl in the state
2011: Willow Parker Camden Hills
And the winner is…….
Tessa Cassidy Brunswick
Tessa Cassidy had an outstanding freshmen campaign as we saw her mix it up with the top girls in Class A. She showed her true form at the Festival of Champions placing second in the freshmen race running a time of 19:54.40. Her time was the 18th fastest of the day. Her finest race of the season came at Eastern Regional Championships where she placed second to Erzsebet Nagy running a time of 20:36.31. She followed up her performance with a ninth place showing at the state meet running a time of 19:40.51. Cassidy placed 84th at the New England Championships on Saturday running a time of 20:53.56. Look for Cassidy to only improve from here, and challenge for the Class A title next fall.
