The cross country team improved to a perfect 4-0 following a dominating 20-59 win over Carroll this week. On a beautiful afternoon in front of the home crowd, Belmont Day recorded 12 PRs! You heard right, 12 of Belmont Day’s 18 runners ran their best times ever on the 2.2-mile home course. Highlighting these impressive times were a trio of veteran eighth graders who have put in the work over the years and are now reaping the rewards. Brynn Franklin, Simon Wright, and Jovana Zivanovic all dropped nearly half a minute off of their previous bests, each finishing in the top 12 overall with times under 17:15. Joining the talented eighth grade trio in the PR column was a pair of seventh grade classmates, Edwin Voiland (17:19) and Emmett Mack (17:26) who finished in 12th and 13th place respectively. Also chipping in with a strong performance was Sohan Shah who recorded his fastest time of the season. With all of the PRs and overall team success, another first place finish from Sam Leviton almost seems ho-hum. In what has become an expectation, Sam recorded his fourth consecutive first place finish, coming in at a blazing 12:51, his second sub 13:00 in a row. The team now sets their sights on the first invitational meet of the season and will take their undefeated record to Brookline for the Larz Anderson Invitational next week.
