Coach: Todd Hamilton (5th year)
Last year: 1-11
Key Returnees: Sarah McCarthy, Sr.; Zoe Loughman, Jr.; Erica Prevey, Jr.; Laura Netti, Jr.
McCann Tech does not compete in Berkshire County meets, instead competing with foes from the Pioneer Valley as well as in regional vocational school meets. In 2012, many of the Hornets were first-time runners, and used the season as a learning experience for future falls.
McCann will compete with six runners on the squad in 2013, five of the six being upperclassmen.
The Hornets return top runner Zoe Loughman, who placed 23rd in the Mass. State Vocational Schools cross country championships with a 24:00.4 finish.
Hamilton said that Loughman has put in a great deal of work over the summer to maintain her No. 1 slot.
Hamilton also feels that juniors Laura Netti and Erica Prevey and freshman Amanda Rancourt will challenge for top slots.
McCarthy is back in uniform for the Hornets, returning after missing much of the 2012 season with an injury.
