KCSD Cross Country Brings Home Gold at the Manhattan College XC Invitational!

The Tigers traveled to the hallowed running grounds of Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx for the Manhattan College XC Invitational. Despite rainy conditions which worsened throughout the day, KCSD walked away with one of the most successful meets in recent year's! KCSD was spread out across modified, freshman, sophomore and varsity races.

The Tigers would leave the Bronx a little heavier than we left and it was not due to being soaking wet. We brought home 29 medals, 1 team championship trophy and 7 championship medals!

The freshman girls won the D race and were awarded the massive championship trophy and championship gold medals on top of the medals they received from the race. (Picture attached). Hazel Lewis won the race and was closely tailed by teammates Charlotte McFarland (3rd), Ireland Hurley (5th), Makenna Reuben (9th), Audrey Dyshuk (18th) and Maura Lester (20th).

Andrew Lee, ran an awesome 46" PR to finish as the silver medalist in the Varsity Boy's A race. Teammates Tim Leiching, Lukas Paunovic, Will Hack, Arkady Rakchev and Liam Gherardi turned in course-best times. The boy's finished 7th out of 22 scoring teams.

Maia Rich ran a 29" course-best time while finishing 33rd in the Varsity Girls B race. Sydney Hurley and Cheyenne Harris ran exceptional races.

The sophomore boys took 7th out of 10 teams in the Sophomore Boys A race led by Colton Parese who notched a top 20 finish!

The modified teams attended, as well. Skyelar Kessner, Ian Nimmer, Joe Leiching and Jameson Beesmer all medaled for the boys. While Madelyn Sykes turned in the top girls performance by finishing 45th earning a medal, too.

The Tigers return to Miller on Tuesday for Senior Night and their final home meet of the season.
