On a beautiful and unseasonably warm day at Madison High School, Lake Catholic's Cross Country boys team showed poise and perseverance fighting to a 2nd place finish in a very competitive field. Paced by Matt Kirchner's 1st place finish and blistering 16:42 pace and Alex Hansel's 3rd place time (and PR) of 16:47 the boys scored 81 points, 6 points ahead of Jefferson to take 2nd place. It's the team's 2nd district hardware in the last 3 years. Gae DeMitro, Henry LoConti, Christian DeMitro and Neil Jones rounded out the top 6 with PR's. The boys team gets to move on to Regionals at Boardman on Saturday, Oct 28th.
The girls closed out their season with another strong showing as well. Chloe Keating finished in 27th place, just 7 spots away from qualifying for Regionals. Katelyn McLaughlin finished her high school career on a PR and Claire Myllykoski also had a PR. Congrats to seniors Katelyn McLaughlin, Anna Mancari and Maisie Crowley on a great cross country career!
