The day started with Dante Perez running a personal best in the 3200 meter
run. In the 4x200 relay, we were trying to qualify our A team, but
there was a pile up on the last baton pass and our A team ended up without
the baton. This is where the B team rose to the occassion and made
the finals.. In the 3200 Meters seeded heat, JC Rice took 3rd place,
but St. Anthony's got 7 points. The next final that came in was the
high Jump, Stephanos Cocoves found a way to score jumping 5'10" and
grabbing 1.5 points for the cause. Then the finals started rolling
in, Charlie Lambert took the Long Jump in a US #2 jump od
24'6". This is a personal best by over 18 inches. he came
up big at a time when his team needed it. In the 1000 meters,
Dominick Ronan showed the fire that the Knights possess as he took the
lead and tried to win the 1000 from the gun. Dom would grab 2nd
place and 4 big points. Next event up was the 600, we were hoping for big
points out of this one and that is what we got as Moe and Clarke come up
for 2nd and 3rd and get 7 points. the next 2 events to be tallied was the
Triple Jump where Matt Baker leaps to a personal best of 46'2 (ATX
#2) then JC Rice comes up big winning the 1600 Meters in dramatic
fashion going with 450 to go and holding on for the win. At this point,
Joe Onah qualified for the Hurdle finals where he finished 6th.
Going into the last 3 events, we trailed St. Anthony's 34-31.5. On
to the relays, we needed 16 guys to come up big. The 4x800 grabs 4th place
and brings the team scores to 34-33.5. St. Anthony's did not have a
team in the 4x400, but we had two teams and they would take 1st and 4th
grabbing 8 important points. The 4x400 B team would put us ahead for
good. the 4x200 brought it home the victory when they took 4th in
the final. End result we have scored 43.5 When they announced
the team scores, you could hear the Xavier Fight Song every where in the

WEDNESDAY 12/17 IN THE
Regionals- Lou Vazquez and Dante Perez brave the elements to bring
the cross country season to closed.
This was a history season- here
is a recap on some of the history we made.
Top Times for the season
11/15 NYS Federations-Our
best finish ever. The team sets a school record for the 5 man
average on the course. John Rice sets the school record for the
course. He becomes the 1st Knight to break 16 mins. All 7
runners rank in the top 15 ATX. Truly an inspirational race as two
Knights (Raslowsky and Cipri) go down during the race, but they get up and
finish strong. We take 4th in the State.
A great end to the season as Ben Karam break 14:00 and Neil McEnery breaks
The Cross Country State Rankings are out and we are ranked
4th. We have been ranked top 10 all season.
The Varsity 7 with their Silver Plaque. Best Finish since 1931
Championships- We knew that we had a tremendous task ahead of us,
but we were determined to make history. And that is what we
did. We qualify for the NY State Federations for the 7th time in
school history. 4th year in a row. ( 1999,
2013) The day started with
Tom Sternglass leading the JV C by winning the race. Tom, who was
coming off injury, too a chance and ran a great race leading from
wire to wire. Also in the race we see Neil McEnery drop his time to
15:15. This represents a 2:12 drop from his first race this
year. Neil shows that hard work pays off The JV C would take
3rd with Newcomer Donavan Brady finishing as the 3rd scorer on the squad
as he drops a huge PR
Next up was the Varsity. A great three way race unfolded in the back
as John Rice battled, Tucker and Lundy. Behind him the rest of the
Varsity 7 ran an inspired race. Christian Raslowsky run #2 ATX with
a 13:01 posting to take 7th over all. This would be the fastest
CHSAA Championship in League History. (ex D'Emic took 2nd with a
13:07 posting in 2007) We run 13:10.65 for a 5 man average (this is the
school record) top 6 guys were all in the top 21 and earn All Star status
JV A takes 3rd Place as a team. Raphael Oetll paces the team with a
sub 14 min posting. Henry Camacho takes 7th place overall and we get
6 guys under 15 in this race 5 man average is 14:23
JV B takes 3rd as well. The squad is lead by the two Freshmen
Crorkin and Donahue who earn their varsity letters by breaking 15 mins (#3
and #5 ATX Frosh respectively) 3 guys go Sub 15 min in this race.( 5 man average
Freshman and Sophomore Championships- The weather does not
cooperate this weekend. The rain just kept coming, all day.
The day started off with Raphael Oetll, Mike Crorkin and Aidan Donahue all
place in the top 7 of the Frosh A Race. Raphael takes the win, becoming
the 3rd Knight to win the individual title in the past 5 years. (e.
Kaufmann and J Rice were the other two guys. We get 3 guys under the
magical 9 minute barrier, all 7 guys under 10 mins. The Frosh A
Team take 3rd as the team runs a great effort in the rain. The Frosh
B team is led by Kehoe as he breaks 10 mins giving us 8 under 10 on the
day. The Frosh C team hangs in for a gutsy race. The Freshman take
3rd in all 3 levels.
Up Next was the Sophs, Giancarlo cipri runs a great easy race to be
the First runner from Xavier to win the Soph Crown. Will McCann runs
a monster race and breaks 14:20. The team comes up big and takes 3rd
. The Soph B team had overcome the loss of some key guys, They
are led by Musto and Dormer as the hit pr's to take 3rd place.
On the day there were 5 races and we took 3rd in all 5 races
Sectionals and Varsity City Championships- This meet would
mark the first time that the NY and BQ sections would come together to
crown a City Champion. Since the intersectional meet is now
considered the state Catholic Championship, the meet this past weekend
would become the City Championship for the Varsity.
The day started off great as Rapahel Oettl ran a great race and posted the
#2 ATX Frosh time (edging out Eliot Kaufmann). He would lead the Xavier
Triumerate (Oettl, Crorkin, and Donoahue) to place 3 in the top 5 of the
race. Perez and McIntyre would each drop 40 seconds off their
previous best to help the Freshman take the title for the 2nd time in
The Frosh B squad would toe the line next and they would run inspired
races lead by Brosnan, Vitarelli and Farage, all of whom ran personal best
times.. The killer B's would take home the silver plaque on the day.
The Varsity stepped to the line for the 1st ever City Championships.
We knew going into the race that it was going to be a battle with Fordham
Prep. Last year we lost a close on (45-46), so we prepared that it
might be that close again. We were able to get our 5 scorers across the
line in the top 10 places, but fordham had 4 guys in the top 7. It
became a numbers ge and unfortuantely we came up on the losing side again
32-33. Archbishop Molloy would take 3rd with 114 points. So it
was really just a dual meet. Christian raslowsky would post the
#2ATX (edging out Kevin D'emic who happened to be on hand to witness the
race along woth Ryan Woerner) We would have a 5 man Averag of
On the broght side th JV was dominant, 12 guys in the top 25. That
is right Half of the top 25 guys wore the Maroon and Blue. The top 7
JV were all under 15 mins, with Henry Camacho taking the Gold.
So on the Day we had 2 Individual winners, 2 team golds and 2 team
Coaches Invitational- The last tune up before the Sectional
Champs. the upperclassmen do not disappoint. The Soph squad starts
the day off by running a solid race. They take 4th behind Will
Mccann's 18;20. The JV are up next and the take 2nd as a team with 3
guys in the top 5. Henry Camacho leads the team with a 18:30 posting
. The Varsity were up next and they put on a show. As the race
entered the woods, we have 7 guys in the top 20. When they leave the
woods, we have the top 4 spots and everyone in the top 8. The team
takes the race with a score of 16 points. A dominant
performance. Their 5 man average is over 1;30 better than any other
team in the meet
Frosh Relays- The last time we won this meet, The Juniors
were just born. The year was 1997, Mr. Dormer had hair(yes it is
true) and the Xavier knights won the FP Frosh relays for the 1st
time. This year the Freshman put on a display. Mike Crorking
led off with a great leg, staying right on the heels of Fordham's top
runner. Fordham had a 3 second lead. The 2nd leg ran great as
Perez was able to keep pace with Fordham , but their lead grew a
bit. McIntyre was game, but as he handed off Fordham had pushed
their lead to 15 seconds. Fordham prep was feeling pretty confident,
but then Adian Donahue dropped the hammer on the Rams. He chopped
their lead in half. He picked up almost 8 seconds on the leading
rams. That is when Raphael Oettl went to work. He crushed the
course running the fastest time on the day. He broke 5 mins and
sealed the deal for the Knights. Great team running. The rest
of the freshmen were pumped and they went right out and posted some
tremendous times.. What a great way tpo get ready for the
2014 NYCHSAA SOPH CHAMPS
SOPHOMORE Championships- For the 3rd year in a row we take
the Soph Crown. Giancarlo Cipri takes 1st(4th year in a row we take
this honor) McCann takes 2nd, Kaufmann 4th to lead the charge.

to pull off. But the guys who raced Friday brought their A game.
Every single Upperclassman hit a PR and 9 Frosh did as well (88% for you

ready. Michael Iaocobucci drops a 40 seconds PR to lead the Frosh,
Vincent Ioviero adds to the fun with a PR of his own. On the varsity
side, Chris Delmond hits a 16:40 to lead the onslaught on the Top time
list. At this meet average improvements were around 1 min.
Huge effort. Makes the afterschool meet worth while
10/5 Mayor's Cup-
It was a perfect day for a cross country race. The sky was blue and
it was cool. That is when the Knights decided to heat up the
course. First up were the Freshmen, They placed 3 in the top four of
the race, but lose a heartbreaker to Fordham Prep by 2 points. Raphael
Oettl wins the Frosh A race with the fastest time for a freshman on the
day. Next up were the Varsity in the championship race. We set a
number of records on the day, John Rice crushes his own school record by
dropping a 12:24.82 (Which is the #4 time ever by a CHSAA runner.)
John would lose to Marco Pompijl from Collegiate but the team would come
up really big. Christian Razlowsky posted the #3ATX and GianCarlo
Cipri would post the #2 ATX SOPH time. Dominick Ronan and Louis
Vazquez would run huge pr's as well. The Team posted a 13:10 5 Man
average, Which is a 20 second improvement on the School Record. Rounding
out the Top 7 was Ben Karam who almost broke 14:00 with a 1403 posting and
Tom Sternglass who went sub 14:30. Not to be outdone, The JV took
the line next and put on a show taking 1st and 3rd Individually while
crushing the competition. The top 4 JV guys were under 15 minutes
