Founders League Tournament
Placed Third
Under fine conditions on the extremely challenging Hotchkiss course, Boys Varsity finished in 3rd place in the Founders League Championships. Having lost earlier in the season to Hotchkiss and Loomis, we were the third ranked team. Hotchkiss and Loomis did finish first and second respectively. We placed 2 runners in the top 10 as Tate Celebi took 4th overall with a 17:09. Captain Ali Griswold finished in 7th with a 17:43. Then came the Big Red pack as Malin Adams 16th in 18:09, Huck Griswold 18th in 18:12, Augi Booth 19th in 18:14 and Rory McNamara 21st in 18:21, all finished within 12 seconds of each other. Running as a pack on the undulating terrain of Hotchkiss is a monumental task, and these 4 did an amazing job. Michael Xu 32nd in 19:33 rounded out our varsity runners. On the JV side of things, we had lost to Loomis and Hotchkiss in the regular season and beat Choate by a mere 1 point, so there was no telling how things would turn out. But when captain Trevor Stellmach finished 2nd overall in 19:20, we began to believe that this could be our day. Eli Arroyo PRed in 20:16 to earn 7th overall. Dylan Shi took 12th in 20:30 with Jed Spencer right behind him in 20:44. Then came our JV pack led by Dylan Muellers who ran 21:05 for 16th place, Will Post 21:07 for 17th place, and Tom Bodson 21:08 for 18th place. These 3 were just 3 seconds apart and finished our official JV scoring. Having all 7 of our boys finish in the top 20 propelled our team into 2nd place overall--a totally unexpected performance. Also running for us were William Zhao, 21st in 21:16, Aarav Dodhia 29th in 21:31 (a PR), Gavin Poon 48th in 22:26, Jayden Oon 55th in 22:42, Andrew Dong 60th in a PR of 22:52, Steven Zhang 77th in 25:30, Colton Bass, 78th in 25:36, The Anh Dao 94th in 29:54, Max Kenausis 95th in 29:55, amd Kai Kenoshita 96th in 30:17.
