CROSS COUNTRY 2019

Cross Country Schedule Posted


11/30 Regionals- It was cold at the park but that did not stop the knights from ending the season on a high note.  The JV took the ourse and placed 3rd  Lead by a fast time by Colin O'Shea who snagged a Regionals T Shirt for his effort.  24 seconds seperated all 5 scorers.  In the Championship race, youth was served as the Sophs run big.  A solid showing as the Varsity Knights finish 11th as a squad


11/23 Federation Championships-  A great effort by the team as we finish Top 10. The Soph trio step up big in their first Federation meet. The race is tight and the course was muddy as the Knights get some valuable experience

11/16 Jesuit Championships- The Freshman end the season with great victory over our Jesuit brothers 2nd year in a row.  It was a real team effort as the freshmen put 11 under 10 on the day and use their depth to secure the victory.  The JV A team from a week ago takes on the Varsity squads from the other 7 jesuit school and place 2nd as a team. The squad was led by Calivin Flett and Colin O'Shea who run their best races of the year.  The JV B takes 2nd in a great team race in the JV showing just how deep we are as a squad.



11/9 CHSAA Championships- Historical that is the only word that can describe what happened on Saturday.  The Knights came ready to race on this day. The day started with the Alumni winning the Annual CHSAA Alumni race in convincing fashion placing 2 in the top 3 of the race.  Then the real show started.  The first race for the Knights was the JV C race and we had a large number of Freshmen running the course for the first time.  They helped set the tone for the day as 4 of them placed in the top 13 of their race.  The most impressive time for the JV C race was turned in by junior Aidan McMahon who dropped a whopping 1:40 of his previous best time going from 17:44 to 16:04 when it counted the most.  These performances would lead us to a win in the JV race as we scored 32 points.  Next up was the Varsity, who were picked to finish 2nd by Milesplit, but they would not be denied.  Oliver Branham-Upton, returning from an injury drops a personal best of 12:53 #4ATX to take 3rd place and then the flood gates opened  7 Knights in the top 21 of the race.  We put 4 across the line before any other team had 3 runners in and 7 runners finish before any other team gets 4 to the finish.  We end up with a 5 man average of 13:19. For the 9th year in a row the Knights of 16th Street will be going to the NY State Federation meet.  (12th time in school history) (1999, 2000, 2007, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018)  3rd time in the last 4 years that the Knights win the CHSAA Championship.  Next up was our JV A team and they were ready to roll, They put 4 guys in the top 6 of the race and score a mere 26 points.  MacAllister Whiting leads the charge with a personal best of 14:04 and the individual crown (not bad for an Eagle scout) This squad just simply dominated the field.  The last race of the day saw a Squad of all underclassmen wanted to get in on the action.  Guinazu, Corcoran and Crabbe go 1-2-3 and lead the squad to victory with a score of 20.  Frosh Nick Hasting clocks a 15:02 to take 6th and Leo Carolan runs 15:04 for 8th. Those top 7 guys in the B race earn their Varsity letters on the day.  So the final tally was 5 races, 5 wins, 2 individual title and the championship trophy back where it belongs on 16th street.
