On Saturday, ross country competed at Worcester Academy's New Balance fields in Worcester, MA on a hot, sunny morning. Due to some last-minute course changes, the course was 6 laps around the perimeter of their sports fields, making the race about 3.25 miles.
The boys came in 1st over Worcester Academy with a 27 to 30 point race. Zachary Stoddard '22 came in 1st with a time of 20:05 on this long course. Two notable moves that won the boys the race were Zach Atwood, '20, and Riley Martin, '21, who passed a WA runner near the finish to gain us two positions and Thomas Soares, '21, and James Hoban, '23, for displacing the WA 5th place runner. Great work to Ben McGarry, '23, for placing 2nd for our team. Ian Martin, '21, and Brian Woz, '20, had one of their best races so far this season.
