The SJS cross country team was back at Illing Middle School yesterday. This time it was a tri-meet against Illing and Ellington. The girls again raced to a first place finish with the top 5 runners for Saint James taking 2nd – 6th place! Lindsay O’Neill led the charge, placing 2nd overall with Isabelle Burke, Ally Ansaldi, Kaitlyn Nyberg, and Liz Munns running close together for 3rd-6th place respectively.
Winning the boys race with a first place finish was Kyle Pelletier, who bettered his time by almost a full minute from last week’s race. AJ Bushnell, who has been consistently improving his time, took 2nd for the team and 5th overall. Dominic Cavallo and Kevin Leger both ran strong races, placing 8th and 9th, while 5th grader Eric Ansaldi ran his best race, placing 14th and bettering his best time by a minute and a half.
The team’s next competition will be the McGee Invitational at Sage Park in Berlin on Saturday. All runners must be at the course by 8:15am.
