RESULTS 


10/25- NYCHSAA 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 school history.  
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 13;12  HEARTBREAKING.
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 Silvers.

 

10/18  Nassau 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

10/18  FP 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 Championship Season


2014 NYCHSAA SOPH CHAMPS
10/15 NYCHSAA 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.  RESULTS TO COME

10/10 All Hallows-  A great day as a majority of these brave runners hit PR's  RESULTS TO COME

 

10/3 Fordham Prep Development meet-  A meet after school is always tricky 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 math guys)  Just some fantastic races as These guys show they are 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 and the next 3 runners were seperated by 2 seconds.  Tremendous Pack Running..  On the Day we had 2 individual winners and 2 Team championships.  Great way to spend a Sunday in the Park.

Raphael Otell continued his winning ways and set the Frosh Meet Record while the Frosh take the team title.  So that is 3 team titles and 2 Meet Records.  Not bad for a day when everyone was tired.  Hard Work does pay off.
