The boys cross country team travelled to Gould Academy for its second meet of the season. The day brought beautiful conditions for running with a hint of fall in the air. Twelve of the twenty-four team members went and competed. Injuries, sickness, college visits, and a couple of disciplinary issues kept the other half home. A total of 38 boys competed in the race.
Once again I was pleased with our efforts. As a team we finished fourth out of the four teams competing. Antoine Montgomery `15 was our lead runner on the day finishing finished 9th overall (he finished 13th last week). Joey Romo `15 continues to be our number two runner finishing 16th overall. He was followed by Isaac Higgins `15 in 20th place, Lwazi Rennert `16 in 23rd place and Bill Li `17 in 24th place. Our sixth and seventh place displacers went toEllis Butler `15 (26th place) and Sam Millard `15 (28th place). Our pack time of 5:09 (the time difference between our first runner and fifth runner) is an area we still need to improve upon.
Boys Team Score…
1. Gould Academy: 22
2. Hebron Academy: 62
