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.
