The varsity boys continue to rewrite the record book, bettering the school record for team time once again, this time by more than three minutes. The boys ran six of the eight fastest times in school history running an impressive combined effort of 86:16, averaging just 17:15 per runner. Joe Renati cracked 17 min for the first time running 16:51. Nedu Ndili was close behind, also dipping under the 17 mark with a 16:59.9. Mitchel Rohr hit a personal best for 5k with a 17:15 showing while Sam Cuevas continues to show steady improvement running 17:23. Cameron Lockard (17:45), Dean DeMoss (17:46) and Peter Enfantino (17:58) rounded out the varsity team as all seven runners cracked 18 minutes with a scoring differential of just 54 seconds.
The frosh-soph boys had a lone entrant but Jake DeMoss held his own and had an impressive debut on the 5k course running 18:44. Starting out the first mile with an impressive 5:25 DeMoss went to work in the hilly second mile passing mile two in 11:43. Holding on to a 6:10 last mile DeMoss was just under 6 minute per mile average passing mile three in 17:59.
"I went out real fast the first mile and it got me in the end," DeMoss said after his race. "A little better pacing at the start and I think I can get my time down."
Hannah Theaker led the way in Frosh-Soph girls race. Theaker medaled with a 17th place finish in 22:18. Ashley Clayton, a middle distance runner at heart, is finding her grove with the longer stuff running a 23:09. Sophia Paterson suffered through heavy cramping start to finish and gutted out a 23:26 showing. Sandhya Bellary rounded out the Frosh-Soph girls.
