The boys cross country team travelled to the Kents Hill School for competition against Hebron, Kents Hill, Sea Coast Christian Academy, and Gould Academy. This week brought a very competitive field of 38 runners from all schools. It also brought a perfect day weather-wise for running.
While the team finished overall in fourth place, it was another competition that saw a number of fine improvements on the year. Eleven of our thirteen runners had their best 5K race-time of the season.
Antoine Montgomery `15 was our top competitor on the day finishing in 9th place 3rd overall (a 5K PR). Finishing right behind him in 12th place was Carlos Sanchez `15 who had his best race of the season. Next for Hyde in 16th place overall was Hang Zhao `15with his best-ever 5K run of the season. The surprise of the day was Sky Zhao `15 finishing fourth for the team (19th overall) with his personal best by nearly 3 minutes. Rounding out our scoring top seven were Lwazi Rennert `16 in 26th place, Isaac Higgins `15 in 28th place (a PR) and Bill Li `18 in 30th place (a PR).
