State Meet Girls' Preview: Several Could Make An Impact Up Front This Weekend

There's a bunch of different storylines that are possible when the girls answer the gun this Sunday for the State XC Meet at Ponaganset. We could have another three-time winner if South Kingstown's Ellie Lawler of South Kingstown can reclaim her title. There's also La Salle's Grace Connolly, who is having a magnificent season and will be seeking her first individual crown. Lawler, Connolly and Westerly's Randi Burr could also make some history by joining a short list of former high school greats - Liz Carlson (Lincoln), Nancy Krolewski (Coventry), Rosie Woodford (South Kingstown) and Karina Tavares (Mount Hope, La Salle) - as the only four-time first-team all-staters. Who do we believe has a chance to finish among the top of the pack this weekend? In no particular order, here's our picks.
