Exeter cycling wins fourth title in a row.

Lovey Danielson '27 captured the Girls A individual title to propel Big Red to the 13th team title in program history. 

The Exeter cycling team continued its dominance of the New England Road Cycling League and captured its fourth straight championship at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The four-peat brings the program's championship tally to 13.

Big Red sped away from the field, amassing 1,004 total points in the final race of the season, nearly doubling the 510 points from Portsmouth Cycling Club, which finished in second place.

Lovey Danielson ’27 was outstanding all season and capped her prep campaign with a first-place overall finish in the Girls A section, finishing with a time of 35:57.0, including a 4:20.3 time in the eighth and final lap. Leta Griffith ’25 claimed second place in the Girls A race, coming in a nose behind Danielson with a time of 35:57.2. Natalie Welling ’24 (37:06.3) finished fourth in the Girls A section, and Elle Perry ’25 (39:09.1) pedaled to a sixth-place finish.

William Lu ’24 paced Big Red in the Boys A section, claiming third overall with a time of 32:42.3; Sebastian Sobeih ’26 (32:44.9) and Avery Baker ’24 (32:45.4), finished sixth and seventh, respectively.

Lydia Reimert ‘26 (37:05.4) and Chloe Richards ‘25 (37:06.0) finished one-two in the Girls C race, while Jesse Ball ‘26 and Jack Cassidy ‘26 claimed second and third, respectively, in the Boys B section.

“We are very fortunate to have a team that features talented, experienced riders coupled with a dynamic group of new riders,” said Exeter head coach Don Mills. “We had an a lot of success putting together solid rides and gobbling up points throughout the season. Our girls side, particularly, was dominant throughout the year and I could not be more proud of the entire group in what was a really, fun, successful season.”
