XC races well at E.Mass D1 championships

The cross country team had a strong showing at the Eastern Mass Divisional Championships.  With over 1,000 racers in the various divisions on the 3.1 mile/ 5K course in Wrentham, the Eagles finished a respectable 8th in the combined north south Division 1.  In his last XC race, Johnny Gallagher was first man for the first time and ran the best race in his low key exceptional career with a 16:39. Sophomore standout Gemsly Cajuste (16:43) was 2nd man, followed by the determined veteran captain Yixin Hu (16:51).  On the big stage, brothers Myles Kirby (17:02) and Aidan Kirby (17:26) both had the best performances of their seasons as the final two point scorers. Owen Duggan and Joe Chase rounded out the top seven.  As only the top 6 teams move on to All-States, the season is over for the  distance crew,  and now many of the team members take a brief hiatus before gearing up for indoor track.
