Bishop Eustace junior Katy Storti placed third in the Parochial A XC championships Saturday at Holmdel, earning a lane in the Meet of Champions next Saturday.
Storti ran a Holmdel PR of 19:28, finishing behind only Pingry soph Nicole Vanesse, who ran 18:45, and Union Catholic junior Jerika Lufrano, who ran 18:51.
Storti’s third-place finish is best by a Bishop Eustace girl since Holly Bishof won the 2011 race in 18:45.
Eustace sophomore Rachel Orr also broke into the top-15, placing 13th overall in 20:26.
This will be Storti’s second trip to the Meet of Champions. She placed fourth at states as a freshman in 20:00 and went on to take 40th place at the 2015 Meet of Champions in 19:41.
