Varsity & JV Cross Country - Boys vs. Choate Invitational
Event Type: Scrimmage
Date: September 17, 2011
Score:no scores kept
Event Recap:
LCXC Choate Invitational Write-Up

Veterans and rookies, the fit and the wishing-we-were-fit, the fleet and the fleet-to be: all travelled south, Windsor to Wallingford, to toe the starting lines of the annual Choate Invitational. With boys running first this fall, the veteran event preceded the novice event, perfect conditions for both competitors and spectators holding clear, bright, and dry from starts to finishes.

In both races, Pelicans chased frontrunners across the line, with four-year senior Ben Hiskes nabbing second place by 14 seconds in the first race, and with brand-new freshman Dontay Downer claiming the same spot in the second race. Joining Ben among the top ten in the veteran event were junior Mike Horowicz (3rd), junior Eli Robbins (7th), and new sophomore Patrick Dickert (10th). Another four Pelican harriers finished in the top 30/top third of the field: seniors Jake Verter, Andrew Shichman, and Michael Danielczuk, and sophomore Tate Knight. Sophomore Andrew Jones joined Dontay as a top-ten rookie runner.

Middle-mile re-routing of the Wild Boars’ course, due to a wash out of the (yes, THE) hill, rendered times less meaningful than finish places and overall efforts; the prolonged, slightly-downhill stretch of finish served as backdrop to some especially gritty displays of determination (senior Alex Rainville and junior Paul Lee finished just one second apart, with Paul sharing his time with a runner from Choate and another one from St. Mark’s, the quartet indistinguishable one from the other to the line.

Just seconds behind them, the largest Pelican flock of the day soared in tight formation: David Barnes (senior) led Ben Laprise (junior), Dan Lanza (junior), Christian Bermel (senior) and Alex Shirley (senior) within 9 seconds on one another. In the rookie event, a pair of pairs pushed pace with particularly noteworthy success: M.Y. June (junior) and Terry Roh ( ) raced one another to the finish spots right in the middle of the field, while frosh Jim Oaks and Ed Smutharaks rallied a couple of contagious kicks.
