Isabella Hemb, Mount Carmel

Hemb continues to drop her 3-mile times as the season progresses. The junior won both the Dominican/Holy Cross Invitational girls meet and the Mt. Carmel Invitational at City Park to start the 2014 campaign, and she followed with a second-place finish in the Christian Brothers Invitational at Money Hill. Her latest outing resulted in a fifth-place finish at the St. Joseph’s Invitational and a time of 18 minutes, 56 seconds. That mark was 1:01 faster than her winning time at the season-opening Dominican/Holy Cross Invite. Mt. Carmel is ranked third in the most recent state cross country coaches poll.
