Today's wins were all about the pack: i.e. a tight finish between the scoring runners. Congratulations to Max Glenn, Alex Jin, Charlie Griffin, Ben Haber, and Nick Mordan for finishing 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th and 12th out of 60 competitors to bring Beaver the three wins. Also a shoutout to Benji Otting and Jonathan Fascetti for their killer finishing sprints today.

An exciting time for Beaver XC with a new addition to the course bumping the distance up to the traditional 5K racing distance of XC. The League is psyched about our new course! Also, brand new best times for everyone! Comparing to the first (shorter) race at home, though, all but 3 (injured, sick) runners ran significantly faster pace per mile splits. Major shoutout to Ian Luchers for the biggest drop in time, followed by Benji Otting and Aidan Carroll. Congrats to Max Glenn and Alex Jin for finishing in the top 10 (5th & 10th) against the top two teams in the league.

Congratulations to Max Glenn and Alex Jin for leading the way for Beaver runners in finishing 2nd and 3rd overall. Following their lead, Charlie Griffith and Nick Mordan really stepped it up from last week to move up the team ranks and finish next in 8th and 9th places. A special shoutout to Ian Luchars, Phillipe Izedian, Sam Szwartz, and Jackson Enyeart for a great finishing pack: 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 23rd overall. Overall, finishing sprints are getting better and in-race pick-ups are being used more wisely. We have a lot of positives to build on from this race, and we're going to do it even better when we return in November! Good job boys!

A big day for Beaver Boys XC! The top five runners (Max Glenn, Alex Jin, Charlie Griffith, Ben Harber, and Ben Campbell) earned the points for our team score, but Nick Mordan and Sam Swartz sealed the deal by finishing ahead of Concord's #4 & #5 runners which forced a higher score for Concord. Without Nick and Sam, we would have lost to Concord by 1. Also kudos to Max Glenn for following the race plan perfectly and overtaking Concord's #2 in the last 400m, which was hugely important for our team score as well. The whole team did a great job of getting out faster than normal and taking advantage of the fastest course of the year to run some big times. Shoutout to Phillipe Izedian, Jackson Enyeart, and Aidan Carroll for following the game plan and notably getting out faster. Finally, nice work by Jacob Cream and Jason Saperstone for dropping their average mile pace under 9 for the first time this year! I could call out something good for everyone, so a big congrats to ALL for applying the workouts and lessons of practice to make it count on race day.

Yesterday was a great day for the seniors. After sitting out the season due to injury, fearless leader Cian Argyle donned his uniform for the first and last time this season to lead his team for the first three minutes of the race. It was a great sight to see for this runner who has been a contributing varsity member throughout his high school career. Co-captain Ben Campbell saved the best for last, finishing 4th for the team and 7th overall by running his fastest time ever at Larz with a drop of 58 seconds from the start of the year and 62 seconds from his best Larz performance last year. Can't wait to see what he has waiting for us in the post-season. Nick Mordan, a first-year team member, has been getting faster and faster every meet over the last three weeks. Yesterday was his best race yet, finishing 5th on the team and 8th overall with a drop of 1:21 from the first time he ran at Larz. He will no doubt play a crucial role in our team score at the EIL Championship Meet.

Not to let the seniors down, the team pulled together for the W against a surging Dexter Southfield team which ran their strongest race of the season. Congrats to Max Glenn, Alex Jin, and Charlie Griffith for rounding out the scoring with their finishes of 2nd, 4th, and 6th. With just one blip, everyone saw faster times at the last home meet, and we are in great shape for the off-season. Special shoutout to the 4 runners who dropped the most time from the first meet at Larz: Alex Cracraft (2:44), Benji Otting (1:52), Jason Saperstone (1:49), and Sam Swartz (1:32). Also nice to see Ben Cohen and Jonathan Marvel-Zucolla running well despite not being at 100%. BC took off 50 seconds from his first race at Larz, and while JMZ missed the first race at Larz he ran 9 seconds per mile faster than the middle race at Larz (which was 3.1miles as opposed to the 2.8mile short course used for the last Larz meet). Finally, Ryland Mattoon showed off great form and a nice finishing kick to make the final shoutout for this meet.
