The girls cross-country team placed seventh overall in Suffolk County. At the Section XI State Qualifier Meet at Sunken Meadow, freshman Josephine Critchley placed fifth overall in the Class A race against Suffolk County’s strongest competition. With Sachem East qualifying as a team (7 total runners), the next five fastest individuals who aren't part of the qualifying team also advance to states. Among those five individual qualifiers, Josephine placed third, making her the first female cross-country runner to advance to the state meet in West Babylon history. She will travel to Wayne, New York to run against the best of New York State.

The team’s seventh place achievement was accomplished by Josephine Critchley (freshman), Ellie Downey (freshman), Kylie Magee (sophomore), Jamie Cozzi (sophomore), Natalie Haab (junior), Hannah Heller (junior) and Tara Hauff (senior).
