Spotlight on CROSS COUNTRY

Our Cross Country teams hosted their first meet at Cold Spring on Wednesday vs Acton Boxboro. It was a very successful meet for all our teams! Our girls won both the varsity and JV races. The Varsity score was 28-30, and the JV score was 18-41. The lower score wins in Cross country races.

Coach McChesney writes:

The runners finished 1st and 2nd in the varsity race and we won the meet on depth. We placed 6 in front of their 4th and 7 in front of their 5th. Our varsity is now 3-1 and JV is 4-0.

From Coach Norton:

It was a great NS-AB battle to the end with the senior Hiro Sakuma 2nd place on the slightly damp 5k course 17:11. Sophomore Alon Mileguir’s 30 meter kick to the finish nudged out AB’s 3rd and 4th runner, his finish time 17:31. The team was proud to see freshman Joshua Kahn improving finish on his second JV cross country race.

AB defeated the Lions by a narrow margin of 26 to 30.

Coach also sent in the race reviews from previous competitions:

  • The DCL XC meet held at Franklin Park had great viewing areas as well as nice weather to boot! Junior Hiro Sakuma crossed the finish line 2nd place overall and 1st runner for our Lions. He was followed by a pair of his sophomore running mates, Alon Mileguir and Ben Pistiner, in 4th and 5th overall respectively. Good job by the rest of the JV team. They looked strong to the end!  NS-22 Cam-35 •  NS-23 Bos-35
  • The team also defeated Weston and Lincoln Sudbury on September 14. NS-21 LS-35• NS-16 Weston-54
