Hawken’s Ella Gilson wins third straight CVC title

BURTON–Hawken junior Ella Gilson smoked the field at the 2019 Chagrin Valley Conference Cross Country championships.

Gilson, the defending Division II state champion, finished the race in 18:25, nearly two minutes faster than the second-place finisher. The CVC title was the third straight for Gilson, who won Valley Division titles in 2017 and 2018. Hawken moved to the Chagrin Division this fall and finished in third place as a team.

Edgewood edged Geneva by one point to win the Chagrin Division title while Berkshire’s girls won the Valley Division by four points over second-place Lutheran West.
