Phoenix Cross Country Strong at MAISAD Championships

The boys cross country team travelled to the University of Maine in Augusta on Friday to compete our MAISAD league cross country championships.  Thirteen members of the boys program represented us at the meet.  Our top seven runners competed in the varsity championship and our next six runners competed in the JV championship.

I’m proud to say that all thirteen competitors had their season best 5K race performance… no exceptions!!!

The varsity team finished in fourth place overall.  Unfortunately our top competitor Antoine Montgomery `15 was disqualified along with three other runners from other schools for a minor course violation.  So finishing first for the Hyde varsity was Joey Romo `15 in 12th place, followed by Sky Zhao `15 in 13th place.  Isaac Higgins `15 was third for Hyde in 21st place, followed by Lwazi Rennert `16 in 23rd place, Paul Xi `15 in 24th place, and Jack Gao `17 in 26th place.

In the JV race, Hyde ended up placing four runners in the top ten finishers.  All received ribbons for their performance.  Fourth place overall was Bill Liu `18.  Right behind him in fifth position was Ellis Butler `15.  Ninth and tenth place went to Jack He `17 and Alan Wu `16 respectively.  Rounding out the JV squad was Brendan Lutes `18 in 11th place and Mike Hu `17 in 12th place.  The JV team finished in second place overall.
