The boys cross country team hosted its first meet of the season on a beautiful afternoon in Bath. Competing were Hyde, Gould Academy, Hebron Academy, and Kents Hill School. Hyde entered sixteen competitors in the race. There were 43 overall competitors. For all but three, this was their first-ever race and cross country competition.
I was very pleased with our results. As a team, we finished third overall in the team scoring. Our top three competitors Carlos Sanchez `15, Joey Romo `15, and Antoine Montgomery `15 finished as an 11th-12th-13th place pack. Scoring next for Hyde was Isaac Higgins `15 and Josh Dow `16 in 16th and 17th position. Our “Displacers” (a cross country term) Sam Millard `15 and Bill Li `17 finished 22nd and 24th respectively. Our “Pack Time” (the time difference between our first runner and fifth runner) was 4 minutes… this will need improvement as we head into future meets.
Individual boys results are attached below.
