EDISON, NJ -- The Middle School cross country team at The Wardlaw + Hartridge School in Edison surpassed individual and team expectations in a race against much larger public schools at the Greater Middlesex Conference Championships on Oct. 21.

W+H had four top-50 finishers last fall and doubled that total with eight in the top 50 this year. Bronwyn Russell of East Windsor led the girls with a third-place overall finish, completing the 1.5-mile course in 9:58. The girls put forth an amazing effort, narrowly missing the team podium finishing fourth overall.

Other W+H finishers in the top 50 included Shreya Dharayan of Edison (14th, 10:43), Jasmine Burney of Plainfield (25th, 11:01), Tenajah Eldridge of Plainfield (29th, 11:08) and Nelagh Matthews of Metuchen (45th, 11:32).
