Cross Country Remains Undefeated

On a day when every other team canceled their games due to the ominous forecast, cross-country braved the cold temps and blustery conditions while hosting Shady Hill and Charles River. As it turned out, it was a banner day for the Blue & Gold, with 18 of the team’s 23 runners recording personal bests on the home course. Included in that group were a trio of seventh grade teammates, Sophia Tang, Brooks Largay, and Devon Holman, whose times are a testament to all of the hard work they’ve been putting in on the trails this fall. The highlight of the afternoon may have come from sixth grade classmates, Nadia Lomeli and Olivia Zhou, who dropped a combined six minutes off of their previous bests. Couple those standout performances with yet another 1-2-3 finish from Miles Sandoski (12:27), Henry Buckley-Jones (13:08), and Alexander Colangelo (14:20), and the result was another dominating team win for cross country which now sits at 4-0 on the season.
