Cross Country Team Growth

There’s a lot of good buzz coming from our Cross Country team!

Thanks to the generosity of Gregory O’Connell, a friend and supporter of the program, the team can now be seen at meets wearing new long-sleeve dry-wicking running shirts under their new team tent. In addition to these recent donations, Mr. O’Connell continues to fund Cross Country scholarships for our students.

At the Canterbury Invitational last weekend, Michael Bertin ‘21 placed 6th out of 128 runners, and the team averaged a 55-second improvement on their 5K in the face of unusually challenging conditions!
