Last Saturday, the Girls and Boys Varsity Cross Country teams competed against its local rival Princeton Day School (PDS). With many turns and different terrains, the course was particularly challenging, but both teams ran strong and performed well.

For the boys, the team’s top five runners rested, allowing some younger members to lead the team. Nonetheless, the boys continued their undefeated streak in dual meets by winning 17-44. Orlando Doull ’21 won the 5K race with a season-best time of 18:42. Doull said he was pleased with his performance but still motivated to set a personal record (PR) in future races as he was just short of one in this race. He was followed by Thomas Blair ’22 and Jack Saad ’22, who had times of 19:17 and 19:27, respectively. Harrison Wang ’20, who had a season-best of 19:53, came in fourth place for Lawrenceville. Closing out the top seven were Sean Scarpa ’23 at a second under 20 minutes, Thomas Atkinson ’22 with a time of 20:09, and Michael Zhang ’21 at 20:40.

Following the victory, Boys Varsity Cross Country Coach Stephen Wallis spoke highly of the boys’ progress. “Everyone did a good job running hard despite the warm weather and has improved since the season started,” he said.

On the same day, the Girls Varsity Cross Country team split, with some girls competing at the Six Flags Wild Safari Invitational in Jackson, New Jersey while the rest joined the boys at PDS. Despite the hot and humid conditions at the invitational, the girls ran some of their season-best times. Charlotte Bednar ’22 topped the table, putting on an impressive performance as she led the race from start to finish, arriving at the mile mark in just 5:07 and continuing to complete the 5K course in 17:41, only missing the all-time course record by a mere two seconds. With her performance, she now holds the record for the fastest 5K this season in NJ by more than 20 seconds. Allison Haworth ’22 came in second among the girls and 7th overall in the race, finishing in under 20 minutes for the first time in her career. Bella Shroff ’21 and Co-Captain Carolyn King ’20 set PRs for this season while Kate McCann ’22 and Carina Li ’22 also had a solid day. The girls had a successful outing, earning third-place overall amongst the 16 teams competing in the meet.

At PDS, the rest of the girls, led by Rina Takaoka ’20, beat PDS 24-35 on a difficult course. Takaoka ran a season-best time of 22:15 and placed second in the race. She was followed by Co-Captain Alannah Nathan ’20 who finished third and Alexis Gonzalez ’22 and Jane Huang ’20, who placed 5th and 6th respectively. They were followed by Reese Abromavage ’23 and Ashley Wang ’23, while Angela Dong ’20 rounded out the team’s scorers. Assistant Coach Enithie Hunter noted the girls’ significant achievements, including that of the seven girls who competed in the race, six of them set PRs. Defeating PDS marked the Girls Varsity Cross Country Team’s second dual-meet win of the season so far.

Overall, Big Red Cross Country had a strong day, with some outstanding individual finishes and a couple of two big dual-meet victories. Both teams will head to Holmdel, NJ next Saturday to compete at the New Balance Shore Coaches Invitational where the boys look to match their first-place finish from last year.

Windows 8.1 follows in that tradition. You can use the awkward and confusing Default Programs option in the desktop Control Panel. But it’s much, much easier to use the new Defaults option, which you’ll find in PC Settings under Search & Apps.
