The boys cross country team travelled to Hebron Academy to compete in its last regular season meet before heading into our State Prep and the New England Prep championships. Competing yesterday were all our MAISAD league teams… Hyde, Hebron, Kents Hill, Gould, and Sea Coast. A warm and sunny fall day greeted us (after a week of pouring rain).
The team finished in fourth place overall. While we haven’t the talent or experience of other teams, I remain pleased with the team’s performance. Of all the runners who previously competed at Hebron, all but one had their best time on the course.
Antoine Montgomery `15 was our top competitor on the day finishing in 10thplace overall. Finishing behind him in in 14th and 16th place were Hang Zhao `15(a PR) and Joey Romo `15. Next to round out our scoring team was the respective 21st, and 28th place finish of Jake Deutschlander `15 and Lwazi Rennert `16 (a PR). Displacing for us were Isaac Higgins `15 (30th place) and Paul Xi `15 (31st place and a 3 minute PR improvement).
Other notable Hyde finishers were…
Nick Sutton `15 – 32nd place
Ellis Butler `15 – 35th place finish and a PR
Alan Wu `16 – 36th place and a 2 minute PR
Mike Hu `17 – 40th place and a 6½ minute improvement
