Kayleigh Doyle’s first appearance in the Catholic Academies League cross country championships was mighty impressive.
The freshman from Sacred Heart edged teammate and two-time defending champion Emma Seifried by six seconds to help the Lions sweep the top three places in the championship race.
Doyle crossed the finish line in 19 minutes, 23 seconds for the first big meet title of her career. Emma Seifried was second finished in 19:29, followed by her twin sister Hannah in 19:31.
The Lions finished second in the team competition to Nazareth Academy.
