2/16 North SHore Meet- Here are the results from the NorthSHore meet.


2/10 Varsity CHSAA Championships-  What a great day. A complete team effort. The day started with Pat Heaney qualifying for the State Federations by taking 2nd place in the shot. It was followed by Owen Hassler setting a league record in the 3200 meters and becoming the first freshman in league histpory to break the 10 minute barrier.  Sawyer Gwyn-Rowsom overcame a plantar fasciitis injury to grab 5th place in the same race.  Then the Long Jumpers put on a show as both Sweet and Rameriez soar over 20' to take 1st and 3rd.  (Xavier Sweet from Commons All Star to State champion) They score 9 valuable points.  Meanwhile the 4x200 and 4x400 both qualify for the finals setting the stage for a great finish.  Jerardo Perez runs a guts race and grabs 6th in the 1000 and Mike Crorkin sets up at takes 3rd in the 600.  By this time,we had amassed 20 points and it was a tight race between us and St Anthony's and St Peter's. After the 55 meters, St Anthony's went into the lead.  Then we started to take control, Oettl took 2nd in the 1600 with a great 4:20 effort and both our hurdlers score 4 valuable points.  Going in to the relays it was Xavier 28-St Peter's 24-St Anthony's 22 . All we needed to win was our relays to run big.  Relays have always been the strength of the Xavier Knights and it would be the relays that put the title in reach.  The 4x800 took 3rd with a monster 1:55 leg by Oettl, that put us ahead 31-28 over St. Anthony's. Then the 4x400 ran an impressive 3:28 to take 3rd and beat St. Anthony's 4x400 so it was 34-30.  The 4x200 put the icing on the cake taking 4th place and adding the final 2 points.  It was great to hear the Xavier School Song ring out in Staten Island as the team scores were announced. 


2/3 Millrose Games-  A great race at the Armory.  Jereardo Perez had a masterful leadoff leg. Waiting patiently to make his move, Jerardo shot to the front of the pack in the last 150 and handed off to Crorkin.  Then the race was on, once in Front the Knights made sure that no one could take their lead.  Mike, Fergus and Raph all ran tough legs and were able to bring home the victiory for the first time in school history.


2/3 Frosh Soph Intersectionals-Even though the flu lessened the number of knights who could compete, nothing interfered with their competitive spirit.  Some great performaces across the board highlighted by Owen Hassler's double gold performance and his winning of the MVP of the league.  The Freshmen would finish 5th and the Sophs 15th.  Not bad showings for the young knights


1/28 NYCHSAA and City Champs-The flu could not stop the Knights from a Historic 4 Peat.  We had some great individual Performances ( Heaney #2 ATX Crorkin #2 ATX) but in the end it was the depth of team that brought home the Championship.  We had 2 relays score in the 4x800 and 2 relays make the finals of the 4x200.  When guys got sick, we saw people step up and find ways to score  That is the mark of a great team.  Congrats to Owen Hassler for getting the League record in the 3200 meters for a Freshman with his 10:00
