Coach: Theresa Apple (13th year)
Last year: 13-1
Key Returnees: Lauren Farry, Jr.; Makayla Powers, Sr.; Mackenzi Powers, Sr.; Liza Smith, Jr.
The Generals will return a strong squad this year which earned a second-place finish at the Western Mass. Division I meet at Northfield Recreation Center. That earned the Generals a trip to states, again at Northfield, where they came home with a top-20 finish.
Pittsfield will return all of its top seven runners, and have also added 14 freshmen and new upperclassmen from other sports to fill out their squad of 41 runners.
Lauren Farry will look to build upon her impressive performance in 2012, which included multiple county wins and a fifth place finish in the Western Mass Division I meet. Farry was leading the Berkshire County championship race until she had to stop due to illness, so look for her to try to complete unfinished business this year.
Juniors Makayla and Mackenzi Powers also return after strong performances respectively in the county and divisional meets. Bell said to "Expect [junior] Liza Smith to make a big jump this season. She has looked sharp in summer runs."
