NXN NEW YORK INFO 

MEET DATE & LOCATION
11.26.2016 Bowdoin Park Wappingers Falls, NY

SCHEDULE
11:30 Boys NY Championship Race


11/19 NY STate Federation Champs- A tough day in Bowdin park.  The Varsity squad takes 11th as a team  This is the 3rd best finish in school history.  Sawyer Gwyn Rowsom  steps up and pops a huge performance.  Michael Crorkin drops a 20 second personal best.  Oliver Branham Upton runs tough as a frosh and he places 4th for our team

11/19 Jesuits- A great finish to the season for a majority fo the team.  We represent both Xavier and Brooklyn prep so we split our strength, but they Knights rise to the occasion.  Gregpry leads the Frosh into battle and O'Brien leads the Varsity  Great to see theunderclassmen tepping up to run tough.


The Varsity 7 with Heavy D
11/12 CHSAA Champs-  The day started with the skies being Xavier blue. It ended with the best finish in School History.  A few historical facts,  No city School has won the title since 1994(Farrell), No Manahttan school has won the title since 1974 (Power Memorial).  Xavier has not won the title since 1931 when there were only 7 teams in the league. All of that changed this past Saturday in the park.  In addition the JV took 2nd in all levels. (A,B,C).  
The Day started off with the JV C race and our squad was paced by 2 sophs (Abernathy and Ruiz) who were looking to break the mythical 15 minute barrier  They came close and scored personal bests as they along with Brady, Ioverio and Cruz all placed in the top 16 to grab 2nd place behind St. Anthony's.  
Next up was the Varsity squad who were favored to win this race.  Many other teams were in the mix but the Knights ran a great team race.  Cipri made his play for the individual title and became the 3rd Knight to finish 2nd (D'emic and Rice).  Then our guys came in close to each other, Oettl, Crorkin Gywn-Rowsom and Donahue all crossed the line in the top 26 of the race.  Donohue's finish as our 5th man sealed the deal and brought home the title. Branham-Upton broke 14 to be the 2nd fastest Freshman on the day.
The JV A race saw Pat Naroko run an inspired race to lead the squad as they grabbed 2nd in the JV Championships.  Pat had company from some underlcassmen ( O'Brien and Perez) as the Jv made some noise.  The Last race of the day saw two of our guys go 1-2 in the race as Xander Viteralli and Jimmy Lunny ran tough to pace the squad.
On the day we had 6 guys break 14:00, 16 Guys Break 15:00, 32 guys break 16:00.  We picked up 3 Second place finished for the JV Squads. (no city team beat us)  and Most importantly we brought home the elusive Cross country title.

We qualify for the NY State Federations for the 9th time in school history 6th year in a row ( 1999, 2000, 2007, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015)

Since I know you love history like I do, here is the 1931 Article from the NY times about the last time Xavier won.


Alumni Race- To Start the day off we have 6 Alumni win the Alumni race.  (1st time since 1985) Always great to have the support of the alumni.

11/5 CHSAA FROSH SOPH CHAMPS- Great day at the Park  The Underclassmen collect 5 top 3 performances.  Once again we prove that we are the top team in the city as we battle St Anthony's nd Chaminade all day for the top 3 spots. Huge races by the Frosh as 19 of them hit personal bests.  The Frosh A team is pace by the fact that all 7 guys break 10 for the first time this season.  Not to be outdone James Verrengia drops the hammer as he wins the B race.  The C squad follows up with a huge performance that saw the entire group hit personal bests.  Next up was the Sophs who step up just like they have all season.  4 guys break 15 and 6 guys on the A squad drop Pr's.  Then the B team took the course and grabbed 3rd as well  5 Races % top 3 finishes  the Furture looks bright indeed.


10/29 NYCHSAA Sectionals-  A Historic Day at VCP. for the 4th time in School history we take the Varsity Sectional Crown. (2nd Year in a row)  For the 3rd time we take the Freshman Crown BUT for the first time in school history we take all 4 races at Sectionals and the Combined City Champs.  We also have the individual winner of every race.  The Freshman B and The JV score a perfect 15 on their way to a championship.  So many guys stepped it up, so many guys came to race and as a result we were dominant.  No Question about who the best team in the City is now. The first race of the Day saw 6 Freshmen break 10 for the first time this season.  Huge personal bests by all 7.  Up Next was the Freshman B race, and they ran as a group as 5 of them cross the line before any other team  They led by the cow path and held the pace to the finish line.  The Varsity Race went out slow and our guys made their move by the bridge.  We would get 3 of the top 4 spots. All 5 scorers in the top 11 as we roll to a huge win.  we take the Sectional and city Crown for the 2nd year in a row.  As Great as all these races were what the JV did next was unprecedented.  They place the first 6 guys across the line and the 7th knight was 8 overall in the race.  On this day we left no doubt who the best team was.

10/1 McQuaid Invitatonal-  What a great meet.  As always we had a great time as we travel north to visit our Jesuit brothers.  the weather was a little wet, but the Knights ran great.  First up were the JV and they ran a great race.  Branham-Upton and Rice led the JV squad as they posted the #2 and #3 ATX Frosh time for the course.  the JV would place all 7 scorers under 18 mins as they grabbed 3rd Place as a team. They also set the School record for 5 man Jv average. Next up were the Sophs, led by Staten Island's own Mike O'Brien who broke 17 mins ( not bad for a guy running his 1st Xc season)  Then the Varsity toed the line.  A disciplined race had the top 5 finish within 23 seconds of each other. They did not let the weather or the sloppy conditions slow them down as they took 2nd place in the AA race and 3rd Place on the merge of all the Varsity Races (out of 228 teams).  for the 4th year in a row we were able to win the Glavin Cup.  This award goes to the fastest Jesuit team at the McQuaid meet.

9/29  Fordham Prep developement Meet-  A great run in the park on a Thursday afternoon.  The Upperclassmen claimed victory, led by Pat Norako who took 3rd as an individual.  The Freshmen saw a huge number of personal bests as two guys break the magical 10 min barrier

9/24 XAVIER INVITATIONAL- A great day in the park Great races as the Freshmen take the famed Frosh course by storm. We had One break 9 mins and one run 9 flat.   They take 2nd  as a team.  Next up were the sophomores with two guys(Anderson and O'Brien) breaking 15 mins and a 3rd (Bastionello)almost there.  The Sophs take 3rd as a squad.  Next up was the Varsity and what a race it was, as Cipri breaks the famed 13 min barrier and Gwyn-Rowsom moves to #4 ATX just ahead of Kevin D'Emic.  All 5 scores oin the Varsity hit 13:50 or better  Solid effort. Just as with  the Varsity, the JV would not be denied.  Vitarelli wins the race in dramatic fashion to lead the JV to the team title. We had 12 under 15 mins Not bad for the first meet



The 7 guys who brought the trophy back home to 16th Street for the 6th year in a row, 12th time overall
9/19 Jim Scott Invitational-  Dominant performance on all Levels.  We sweep the three levels. Oliver and Ethan lead the Frosh with a 1-2 finish.
