For the first time in the school’s history, both the boys and girls teams traveled together to the State XC Championship on Sunday, November 5th.
After competing on the Ponagansett course at last week’s Class Meet, the teams knew what to expect of the course and were a bit better positioned for strong races. Today’s goals involved individual efforts and achieving their personal bests.
The Boys race kicked off 45 minutes after the girls' and it was shaping up to be a very fast race. Junior Nick Januario took the lead for the time and held a strong pace over the 3.1 mi course. Nick finished in the 24th spot, securing a ride to the New England Championship next weekend and setting a new school course record with his time of 16:48.
The rest of the team also had strong performances, many improving their times from last week.
