There was no stopping sophomore Molly Seidel of tiny University Lake School Thursday afternoon at the prestigious and talent-laden Arrowhead Cross Country Invitational.
Seidel, the defending WIAA Division 3 state champion, led every step of the way in the 4,000-meter race and won the event with a personal-best time of 14:18.49. Seidel pulled away from Waukesha North junior Jenna McMiller in the final 800 yards to win the race by seven seconds. North's Sammi Donovan was third (14:28) and Arrowhead senior Gabby Levac, the defending WIAA Division 1 state champion, was fourth at 14:36.
