11/11 CHSAA Championships-  Historic Day in the park.  The day started off as cold as Dormer's classroom, but ended with the sounds of "Sons of Xavier" echoing thru VCP.  The day Started with the JV C race narrowly missing the win.  The C team finished a scant two points behind Chaminade with 7 guys under 16 mins.  After that race, it was all Xavier.  The Varsity did their job placing 5 guys in the top 13 of the race. Aidan Donahue grabs the #2 ATX with a monster personal best, Oettl and Crorkin both pr and go under 13:05 Sawyer and Fergus brought home the title with solid runs.  Xavier would tally 35 points as we take BAck to Back titles for the first time in school history.  The JV A 4 guys in the top 7 of their race scoring less than 30 points. The JV would follow suit as they tally 24 points to bring home the win

11/4 CHSAA FROSH SOPH CHAMPS-
HISTORIC  That is the only word I can use to describe what the Freshmen accomplished this past Saturday at VCP.  They won each of the 3 Freshmen Championship races and Had the race winner in each Race ( Hassler in A, Goell in B and Asaro in C)  3 guys under 9, 14 guys under 10, and 23 guys under 11  28 of 38 Freshmen hit lifetime best  They left no doubt who the best CHSAA Frosh team 
The Sophomores ran very tough as well, missing a number of guys due to injury the A team bravely fought to a 4th place finish edging out Regis by a point.  The B squad saw a number of lifetime bests as they took 3rd place   Overall a great day as we had 5 top 4 finishes on the day.

10/28 NYCHSAA Sectionals and City Champs- What a great day in the park.  The Knights were unstoppable as we won all 4 races on the day and had 4 races winners.  The meet started with the Freshman A race as Owen Hassler lead the race from wire to wire and the rest of the Frosh A team drops some serious personal bests. Tuffey and Toledo go sub 9:10, O'Shea sub 9:20, Edmund sub 9:30  Not to be outdone the Frosh B team puts 7 guys in the top 10 of their race and score a low total of 17 points.  The freshmen were led by 3 frosh who crack the 10 min barrier for the first time. (Mendez, Davilla and Conlon)
Next to the line was the Varsity. A great team can find a way to win, and that is just what our varsity did.  For the 3rd year in a row we take the NYCHSAA and City titles in dominating fashion.  We score less than 30 point and put 5 scores in the top 11 of the race. Oettl becomes the 6th Knight to win the Individual Sectional Crown and 2nd one to win the City Title.  Then the flood gates opened. Lead by Michael R O'Brien the JV score a perfect 15 placing 14 guys in the top 25 of the JV race 7 in the top 7. It was a sight to see just a long line of Xavier Blue.  (even the sky was Xavier Blue)


Our two individual winners, Oettl takes the Varsity race and O'Brien takes the JV race.
10/21 NYC XC Festival-
A great tune up for the championship season.  The Freshmen A Team was able to win the race and take down the school record (which was held by the senior class)  They started with a 15 second lead and opened it up to a 1:30 lead by the time the 5 some was done.  Not to be outdone the B , C and D teams all placed in the top 9 of the B race  This showed the league that our freshman class has significant depth.  Next to the line was the varsity, and as we have done all season, they ran as a pack.  Only 24 seconds seperated our 1st finish from our 5th scorer.  we had 5 guys in the top 8 of the race and all 7 in the top 21 Our 13:20 5 man average makes the all time list.  The JV took the line next and we had 46 guys in the race. Lead by Mike O'Brien's personal best the JV put 7 guys in the top 16 of the race.  All in all a very solid day   Next up Sectionals and City Champs

 

10/14-  Manhattan College-  The day started off with Calvin Flett dropping a 45 second pr on the course, after that fast races were around every corner.  The Freshman just missed a trophy by 1 point, the JV A took second behind a lifetime best of Perez who broke 14 mins, the JV B rallied to a top 10 finish behind Cruz' sub 15 performance.  The Varsity raced in the big race, led by Mike Crorkin's 13:10 they place 10th as 4 guys broke 13:30. Overall we were the best team from NYC and the CHSAA on the day
