Phoenix Cross Country Takes on Hebron, Kents Hill

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.  Once again, Antoine Montgomery `15 was our lead runner finishing in second place (a 47-second improvement).  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.

Jack Gao `17: a 5-second improvement in 23rd place.

Warner Raulston `15: a 19-second improvement in 22nd place overall.
