The boys cross country team hosted a small meet against Hebron Academy and the Kents Hill School JV team. It felt like mid-summer with the temperature being 82 degrees at race time. Nineteen members of the team competed. There were a total of 31 boys in the race.
Overall, a good effort with some boys significantly improving their times from our first home meet on September 13th. The team finished in a tie for first with Hebron Academy.

Finishing second for Hyde in his first meet of the season was Isiah Trial `16 (4th place) Joey Romo `15 and Hang Zhao `15 captured 6th and 7th place overall (Hang had a 3:35 minute improvement over his last home race!!!). They were followed by Isaac Higgins `15 in 10th place, Sky Zhao `15 in 11th place (a 1:25 improvement for Sky) and Sam Millard `15 in 14th place. Our pack time of 3:40 was the best of the season.
