Five Cross Country Eagles Medal at DCXC
The cross country Eagles enjoyed perfect weather at the DCXC Invite on Saturday, September 29 at Kenilworth Park in NE Washington, DC. The course is described as being a "fast European style 5k loop course; very slight up and down hills will make for a very quick opening mile; however, there are enough turns and dips to challenge runners and create the need for a strategy."
The day included elementary and middle school racing from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM and high school racing from 12:30 PM to 6:30 PM. Five Eagle runners earned medals:
Patrick Donnelly - 2nd in sophomore race
Gavin McElhennon - 4th in junior race
Cullen Capuano - 5th in junior race
Seamus O'Connor - 8th in freshman race
Reid Norton - 9th in JV sophomore race
from complete results. And here are some great photos:
The Eagles will train this weekend in preparation for their next races on Saturday, October 13 at the 3rd Battle in Winchester, VA.
