Highlights about Boys cross country

The Boys Cross Country “Can Food Drive” for the Newton Food Pantry concluded on Tuesday Oct.27. The team continues its support of our community by their annual collection of nonperishable items for our local food pantries. Living by our core values and creating community during these challenging times has been this team’s trademark. Coach Norton and Coach King are pleased with the leadership that the team captains have demonstrated. In Coach Norton’s words “Captains Will Lavey and Dan Glickman are doing a fabulous job with the team. Their approach to teamwork is very inclusive and outcome specific with a focus on team respect, fun, and value for the community.”

The team also excels at the races this season. Here are some highlighted runners:

Brett Miller has anchored the team by winning every race.

Jonathan Orelowitz has shown great improvements since last season with a couple of close 2nd place finishes.

Eero Helenius has been very consistent and reliable in his ability to hold off opponents and capitalize on securing solid points for the team.

The team will host its last meet of the season tomorrow, Saturday, October 31 at Cold Springs vs Concord Carlisle. Both teams are undefeated in the DCL. The race starts at 1:30 PM.

Parking at Cold Springs is limited. All spectators are required to wear face masks and check-in at the admissions table with their Boys XC Lanyard. Thank you for your cooperation.

Way to go Lions!
