Dublin XC continued its RVAL unbeaten streak at Charlemont on Wednesday, with strong first place team finishes by both the girls and boys teams. In a display of unprecedented, depth, Dublin's top seven girls finished in the top 14 overall. The boys had similar success, placing Dublin's top twelve runners in the top 23 places overall! In fact, Dublin's second five runners, Alex Antonellis, James Wolpe, Leo Zhou, Alex Vienneau, and Clint Macy, would have finished in second place overall, had they been registered as a separate team!
Congratulations are in order for Kyle Mincey, who had the race of his Dublin career, finishing in 3rd place overall, only 9 seconds out of first! He was followed closely by Max Johnson (5th), Quinn Wilson (6th), Ian Baker (8th) and Aaro Virtanen (10th). On the girls side, Lila White won the race, followed by Lee Smith (2nd), Aggie Macy (8th), Isolina Miller (11th) and Rielly Harrison (12th). Laura Hoffheimer (13th) and Camille Pollak (14th) helped out by displacing top runners from other teams.
We are looking forward to a rare home race this Saturday!

On Wednesday, 9/26 Dublin XC traveled to NMH who generously allowed us to use their race course for our "home" meet, as our actual course is still recovering from the historic rainfall totals of the last 2 months. It was quite a success for both the Boys' and Girls' teams, who each took first place out of a field of eight and nine teams, respectively.
Dublin XC Boys & Girls teams both came in 1st place on Wednesday’s RVAL race, hosted at a neutral site. Thanks NMH for use of your course while our dries out.
The Dublin Cross Country team opened its competitive season on Wednesday on a fast course along the Ashley Reservoir in southwestern Mass. It was an historic day for both teams, with all five scoring runners finishing within the top ten overall for both the girls' and boys' races, despite a field of 7 teams! In addition to displaying great depth as a team, many Dublin runners ran PR's, taking advantage of the relatively flat terrain.
Congratulations are in order for newcomer Lila White who won the girls' race, followed closely by Lee Smith (3rd), Isolina Miller (5th), Rielly Harrison (9th) and Aggie Macy (10th).
On the boys' side, Max Johnson led the charge with his strongest finish ever (both overall and for the team) in 3rd place, followed by Quinn Wilson (4th), Aaro Virtanen (5th), Kyle Mincey (8th), and Ian Baker (9th).
Congratulations to all first time runners. The prospects for continued success this season are as strong as ever!
