AAA #1 Assumption rolled to a third place finish at Great American once again setting a new record for Kentucky.  At the Valkyrie Invitational they were the first KY school to ever have four girls under 19 minutes in one race.  Saturday in North Carolina they bettered the time mark with four girls under 18:43 led by Katherine Receveur’s 18:15 in 16th place.  This is the fastest time run in Kentucky this year.  Emily Bean was 18th with an 18:23, Bailey Davis was 18th with an 18:26, and Caroline McCaslin was 32nd with a 18:42.  Kenzley Denfler was their final scorer with a 19:17 which was good enough to finish 57th overall.  This group of young ladies should quickly be joining the national rankings.
