North Andover cross country coach Rick Dellechiaie has high hopes for his top three girl runners this fall and they certainly didn't disappoint Saturday at the season-opening Clipper Relays.

Juniors Courtney Dalke and Abby Mastromonaco and sophomore newcomer Leyla Kvaternik came in second overall in the combined six-mile race, just six seconds behing first place Exetr High.

Dalke led off with a 12:07 for her 2-mile leg, Kvaternik followed with an impressive 11:50 in her first cross country race after being out all last year with a broken foot while Mastromonaco anchored the slightly extra distance with a 12:09. The Knights edged third-place Billerica, the MVC favorite by six seconds).

"Billerica is really tough so I was happy to see that," said Dellechiaie. "Now we just have to close the gap a little with our fourth and fifth runners,"

Also for the Knights, Lauren O'Connell ran a 13:07 on the second relay.

Following North Andover in seventh was Pentucket with Haverhill's first relay team of Brynne LeCours, freshman Finleigh Simonds and veteran Gabby DeRoche coming in 10th. Also for the Hillies, the threesome of Arian LeCours, Ivy Ackerman and Keegan Wipff took 29th.

"We showed pretty good depth today," said Haverhill coach Mike Maguire.
