Catarina Rocha on her way to winning the Northeast Championship last weekend.

In need of some good new here today in blog land after a tough week for Peabody.

That’s why we’d like to say congrats and good luck to Catarina Rocha, who was recently ranked 5th nationally, and will compete in the Footlocker National Cross Country Championships. Dec.8, in San Diego CA.

Rocha, a senior at Peabody High, earmed her lofty ranking by winning the Northeast Regional Championship last weekend in Van Cortland Park in the Bronx, NY.

She won the title with in a time of 17:49.5, which was 20 seconds faster than runner up Megan Curham of Warren, NJ.

The Eye wishes Catarina the best of luck as she attempts next weekend to bring a national championship home to Peabody.
