Cross Country - Boys' Varsity
The 2019 Cross Country Season began with a Fun Run at Noble & Greenough School in early September and ended on a very hilly course at Hebron Academy on November 9th. In between those races were long run Mondays on the rail trail, track Tuesdays on Gustavson track, and long hours riding in the Marianapolis vans. Each member of the varsity team ran an average of 350 miles this season and everyone developed abs of steel.
The boys' varsity team, headed by captain Brian Woz '20, was consistently led by top performers Sal Masciarelli '21 (with a season PR of 16 minutes flat) and Zach Stoddard '22 (with a season PR of 17 minutes 22 seconds), both of whom earned top twenty finishes at the NEPSTA Division 4 Championships and will be competing at Footlocker Northeast Regionals at the end of November. Rounding out the varsity team were Ben McGarry '23 (with a season PR of 19 minutes 56 seconds), Riley Martin '21 (with a season PR of 19 minutes 18 seconds), Ian Martin '21 (with a season PR of 19 minutes 36 seconds), Zach Atwood '20 (with a season PR of 19 minutes 44 seconds) and Thomas Soares '21 (with a season PR of 19 minutes 50 seconds). At the season's end, the team placed 6th out of 24 teams at the NEPSTA D4 Cross Country Championships.
