Mary won the NY Regional Championship race!!

She ran 17:42.6, with 2500 meter splits of 8:56 and 8:47.

Bella Burda, a soph, was 2nd in 17:55.2, her 2500 splits being 8:55 and 9:01.

With Burda ahead at the half, looks like Mary ran just to win!!

Added later:

For some perspective, here's some results from the 2010 and 2011 races.

2011: Jillian Fanning, a jr., won in 17:47.4.
Mary was 3rd in 18:19.4!!

2010: Fanning won this one too, in 18:00.0

This year, Fanning, a senior now, finished 11th in 18:50.8, more than a minute behind Cain!!

I think she's been inj/sick and packed with the FM front-five today.

Some odd things happened between the two Org's (NXN/FL) races. You have to wonder about how some were recruited to which particular race (I think I saw one sandbagger out there)?
Could Cain have run @VCP today if she wanted to or is that out of her hands now? A few really good kids apparently didn't race at all.
While it looks like the talent edge goes to NXN I guess it depends on how much FL values having Baxter in its race who would certainly be favored over "Little Mary."

looks like Mary ran just to win!!

Whether she has the chops to do that against a more talented (Neale, Frazier, Knight et. al) field is to be determined. But it would be nice if there was one race (not both).
