9/27 McQuaid Invitational-  Our 21st consecutive trip up north brings us great results.  The day started off with tom Sternglass taking 5th place in the JV race.  He would lead 6 JV guys under 18 minutes.  The JV takes 2nd place to Upstate powerhouse Pittsford Mendon.  They set the JV school record for the 5 man average. Top 5 JV guys all in the top 25 runners in the race.  A great start to the day.  In the Varsity race, we faced the #3 team in NY Pittsford Mendon and our archrival Fordham Prep.  John Rice took a chance and ran to a school record of 15:10. John now has the 3 fastest times in school history at McQuaid. Christian Raslowsky and Giancarlo Cipri run a furious last mile and grab spots in the top 15. Dominick Ronan also breaks the magical barrier of 16mins.  It was a close team battle, and we came out victorious taking down Pittsford Mendon and Fordham Prep( 87-89-94).  Freshman Raphael Otell set the Freshman School Record for the McQuaid Course by breaking 17 minutes.

9/27 Xavier Invitational-  The Freshmen keep on rolling.  Michael Crockin takes 2nd in the Frosh A race in a personal best time of 9:12.  He leads the A team to a 2nd place finsh.  In The B race, Adian Donahue races to the front and takes the gold, and he leads the B team to a 2nd place finish as well. Ted Colter, Matt Mirto and Donovan Brady lead the Sophs to a 3rd place finish by virtue of their sub 17 minute performances.  Christian Tiong-Smith, Isaac Parker and Pat Sullivan lead the Juniors to a second place finish with their sub 15:40 performances.  Danny Swammy leads the senior squad with his 16:25 performance.


9/26  McQuaid Invitational-  Here are the qualifiers for McQuaid.  See Mr. Dormer if you have any questions

The XC State Rankings are out and we are #8 in the state.  Week 1


The Varsity completes the 4- PEAT
9/22- Jim Scott 2 Mile challenge-  We raced over the weekend and were felling a little tired, but that did not stop us from going out there and giving it our best shot.  The Varsity ran as a team and pulled out the victory.  It is our 4th in a row and 10th overall.  This means we take the all time series lead ( Xavier 10, Fordham 9, Regis 3).  We also Saw Frank Clarke set the JV meet record in the mile with a 4:51 which lead the JV to the team title. 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.


The Hydra racing during the first mile
9/20 Warwick Wave Mania Invitational-  A great trip up north.  We went against the Preseason #4 and #5.  In a close battle we lost to Warwick(#4) and beat Mount Academy (#5).  John Rice starts his senior campaign with a victory and the Hydra made its prescence felt.

9/20-Regis Invitational  The Knights take on VCP to start the season.  The Frosh have the individual winners in both Freshman races. (Otell wins A , Crorkin wins B).  The Sophs post some great times, The Juniors run as a pack  Overall a great day at VCP
