Lippman nets fourth in cross country meet

LITTLETON — Courtney Lippman finished fourth individually for the Glenwood Springs High School girls cross country team on Friday, setting the pace for her team at the Liberty Bell Invitational meet at Heritage High School.

Lippman’s time of 20 minutes, 43 seconds wasn’t a personal record, but it was her best time of the year, Glenwood coach Mike Schneider said. Some of her teammates, including Jenna Brown and Samantha Wright, stepped up enough to help the Demons finish fourth as a team.

Glenwood’s boys team finished 10th of 11 teams. Freshman Phillip Hecksel was the top overall individual finisher, running to a personal-record time for the Demons. Schneider also gave kudos to junior Ben Neeley for his finish and PR.

The Demons will compete again Tuesday at Buena Vista, then will return home to host the 11-team Demon Invitational at Colorado Mountain College’s Spring Valley Campus on Sept. 20.
