CROSS COUNTRY 2014

RESULTS 

11/29 NXN Regionals- Lou Vazquez and Dante Perez brave the elements to bring the cross country season to closed.

This was a history season-  here is a recap on some of the history we made.

Top Times for the season


11/15 NYS Federations-Our best finish ever.  The team sets a school record for the 5 man average on the course.  John Rice sets the school record for the course.  He becomes the 1st Knight to break 16 mins.  All 7 runners rank in the top 15 ATX.  Truly an inspirational race as two Knights (Raslowsky and Cipri) go down during the race, but they get up and finish strong.  We take 4th in the State.

11/15  Jesuits- A great end to the season as Ben Karam break 14:00 and Neil McEnery breaks 15:00

The Cross Country State Rankings are out and we are ranked 4th.  We have been ranked top 10 all season.

 


The Varsity 7 with their Silver Plaque.  Best Finish since 1931
11/9 CHSAA Championships- We knew that we had a tremendous task ahead of us, but we were determined to make history.  And that is what we did.  We qualify for the NY State Federations for the 7th time in school history.  4th year in a row.  ( 1999, 2000, 2007, 2011, 2012, 2013) The day started with Tom Sternglass leading the JV C by winning the race.  Tom, who was coming off injury, too a chance and ran a great race  leading from wire to wire.  Also in the race we see Neil McEnery drop his time to 15:15.  This represents a 2:12 drop from his first race this year.  Neil shows that hard work pays off  The JV C would take 3rd with Newcomer Donavan Brady finishing as the 3rd scorer on the squad as he drops a huge PR
Next up was the Varsity.  A great three way race unfolded in the back as John Rice battled, Tucker and Lundy.  Behind him the rest of the Varsity 7 ran an inspired race.  Christian Raslowsky run #2 ATX with a 13:01 posting to take 7th over all.  This would be the fastest CHSAA Championship in League History. (ex  D'Emic took 2nd with a 13:07 posting in 2007) We run 13:10.65 for a 5 man average (this is the school record) top 6 guys were all in the top 21 and earn All Star status
JV A takes 3rd Place as a team.  Raphael Oetll paces the team with a sub 14 min posting.  Henry Camacho takes 7th place overall and we get 6 guys under 15 in this race  5 man average is 14:23
JV B takes 3rd as well.  The squad is lead by the two Freshmen Crorkin and Donahue who earn their varsity letters by breaking 15 mins (#3 and #5 ATX Frosh respectively) 3 guys go Sub 15 min in this race.( 5 man average 14:55)

11/1 CHSAA Freshman and Sophomore Championships-  The weather does not cooperate this weekend.  The rain just kept coming, all day.  The day started off with Raphael Oetll, Mike Crorkin and Aidan Donahue all place in the top 7 of the Frosh A Race. Raphael takes the win, becoming the 3rd Knight to win the individual title in the past 5 years. (e. Kaufmann and J Rice were the other two guys.  We get 3 guys under the magical 9 minute barrier, all 7 guys under 10 mins.  The Frosh A Team take 3rd as the team runs a great effort in the rain.  The Frosh B team is led by Kehoe as he breaks 10 mins giving us 8 under 10 on the day. The Frosh C team hangs in for a gutsy race.  The Freshman take 3rd in all 3 levels.
Up Next was the Sophs,  Giancarlo cipri runs a great easy race to be the First runner from Xavier to win the Soph Crown.  Will McCann runs a monster race and breaks 14:20.  The team comes up big and takes 3rd .  The Soph B team had overcome the loss of some key guys,  They are led by Musto and Dormer as the hit pr's to take 3rd place.
On the day there were 5 races and we took 3rd in all 5 races


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.
