Sandoski, Buckley-Jones, and Colangelo All PR at Intrasquad Meet

Following the summer break, it usually takes our cross country runners a few weeks to get up to their in-season speed. Typically, runners won’t attain their PRs from last year until the middle of the season as their bodies acclimate to the distance. This year, someone forgot to tell that to Miles Sandoski (Grade 8), Henry Buckley-Jones (Grade 7) and Alexander Colangelo (Grade 7). On Thursday, the trio finished 1-2-3 during the team’s first intrasquad meet and all recorded PRs on the home course. With talent at the top of the lineup and the most depth (23 runners) in program history, expectations are high for Belmont Day cross country this fall.
