The Northumberland cross country team was in action last week with a quad meet at Lancaster. They are scheduled to run in the MileStat meet in Richmond this Saturday against some outstanding competition from the surrounding area of several states.

The Lady Indians varsity field hockey team went on the road to Williamsburg to play Walsingham Academy. The result was a 7-0 thumbing for the Indians. The Walsingham girls score four first half goals but Northumberland tightened its’ defense and held them to three in the second stanza.

The Indians gave up twelve offensive corners and aided by strong midfield play the Walsingham girls controlled the game. The Indians had a few shots on goal but was unable to score. “Good games” went to Hannah Hall, Anna Jett and Emily Rice. The Indians continue to prep for this month’s regional playoffs.
