Cross Country Shines at States, Finishes Unbeaten

Belmont Day’s cross country team is on quite the run. Last Saturday, the team put the finishing touches on their second consecutive undefeated season with a trio of top three finishers at the State Championships. Under the guidance of coaches Anne Armstrong and Elinor Hannum, the largest team in program history was just that … a team. By measuring success in terms of effort and improvement instead of in wins and losses, the team was able to cultivate an environment where every runner was challenged, supported, and appreciated. With such a large team, the Blue & Gold relied on three captains this fall–Elena Ferrari, Miles Sandoski, and Cole Sparks. Having “grown-up” in the program, all three captains clearly understood what it took to create a sense of team in a largely individual sport and were strong leaders on and off the trails. Congratulations to all 23 runners on a memorable season.
