Cross Country at Stoneleigh Burnham School - October 25, 2017

Cross Country at Four Rivers Charter Public School - October 4, 2017

Dublin School XC traveled to Four Rivers school on Wednesday for a race that took place at the neighboring Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, MA. The course was generally flat, but the one large hill near the midway point gave Dublin runners a chance to excel given the high level of fitness that comes with training in hilly Dublin, NH. 

The boys' team took first place, managing to place the top five runners within the top nine overall places. Ian Baker (4th) and Quinn Wilson (5th) led the charge, followed by the tight grouping of Kyle Mincey (7th), Max Johnson (8th), and Rohan Gold (9th).  

The Dublin girls' team finished second overall, but more importantly carved out a little piece of Dublin XC history by managing to place the top three overall finishers in the race! Congratulations to Lilly Bates (1st), Aggie Macy (2nd) and Isolina Miller (3rd), as well as Camille Pollak (20th) and Kate Weber (22nd) who finished strong to solidify Dublin's second place in the team scoring.
