As a team, boys cross country placed second at the Warren High School meet and third at the Lake Park meet.
The runners included Cole Dammeier, Edwin Hernandez, Steven Abraham, Drew Schwartz and Brian Hernandez, sophomores, Justin Loquercio and Elliot Nabatov, freshman.
Boys’ cross country also had three top five finishes in invites throughout the season.
No school records were broken this year, but many personal records amongst the runners were broken.
“I’m grateful for all the freshmen and sophomores that are on the team. This year there was a greater sense of family,” Tom Polak, cross country coach, said.
Noted by Coach Polak, he is particularly proud of Dammeier, Abraham and Loquercio for their outstanding work this season.
“A major improvement to boys cross country was the concept of being one team,” Edwin Arteaga, junior, said. “I have a great dedication to the team; they’re like my second family.”
Cross country season might be over, but all the great memories remain in the runners thoughts.
“This cross country season was fun, tough, motivating, but overall a good experience,” Mauricio Zavala, freshman, said.
