The Trumbull girls\u2019 cross country team opened up the season with two victories in a home tri-meet against FCIAC rivals Fairfield Warde and Wilton. The Eagles placed three of the meet\u2019s top five finishers. They defeated Warde 21-40 and Wilton 19-36. Kali Holden, a three-time All-FCIAC honoree, won Tuesday\u2019s 2.9-mile race in 18:45, nearly 32 seconds faster than the second-place finisher. Holden, who also earned All-State honors in 2020 after leading Trumbull to the FCIAC East title, will lead the Eagles this fall along with classmate Evelyn Marchand and junior Abigail Poplawski. \u201cKali is poised to have one of her best seasons,\u201d Trumbull coach Jim McCaffrey said. \u201cShe is driven and confident, and these two qualities make her one of the FCIAC and state\u2019s best female runners.\u201d Poplawski (19:25) and Marchand (19:43) took third and fourth. \u201cWhen looking at our roster, it is clear we have a very solid and experienced top three runners,\u201d McCaffrey added. \u201cAbigail and Evelyn could be number-one runners on many teams in the state. They understand their roles for us and are ready to perform.\u201d Sophomores Leela Kocinsky (8th, 20:07) and Bridget Walsh (11th, 21:08) ran solid races to account for Trumbull\u2019s scoring runners. Another sophomore, Isabel O\u2019Brien, finished 14th overall (21:17), while junior Gabby Pavlov was 19th (21:59). Trumbull will host Greenwich and Norwalk on Tuesday.
