Cross Country at Stoneleigh Burnham School, September 11, 2019

The Dublin Cross Country team opened its 2019 competitive season by traveling to Greenfield, Massachusetts to participate in the first RVAL league meet at Stoneleigh Burnham School. Sadly, weather conditions were less than ideal. The temperature was clocking in at 85 degrees with high humidity.

The boys' race began at 3:30 pm, while the girls' race started slightly later at 3:50 pm.

Considering the challenging weather conditions and the fact that the girls' team is struggling with some injuries, the results were very positive!

The girls' team took first place with some great performances by Leana Dickhends (2nd), Lee Smith (6th), Cailin Walsh (8th), Isolina Miller (12th) Anna Kozikowski (16th).

The boys' team also took first place with equally great performances: Quinn Wilson (2nd), Matt Coleman (4th), Clint Macy (7th), Adam Sieswerda (9th), and Alex Antonellis(10th).

Both teams maintained their undefeated streaks after an undefeated season last year. Congratulations to all runners!

Cross Country New England Div. IV Champions! - November 10, 2018

Cross Country New England Div. IV Champions! - November 10, 2018

On Saturday, November 10th, Dublin School Cross Country capped off a truly historic and undefeated season with first place team finishes in the Girls Varsity, Boys Varsity and Boys JV races at the NEPSTA Div. IV Championships! The race was hosted by Marianapolis Prep in Thompson, CT, which had seen over two inches of rainfall in the days leading up to the race. The Dublin runners braved the mud and standing water along the course to emerge victorious in an inspiring display of individual grit mixed with unwavering commitment to their team.

To put all these results in context, the previous best team finishes for the Boys' and Girls' Varsity teams at the NEPSTA championships had been 4th (2017) and 7th (2015), respectively, with the Boys JV team coming in a close second in 2016. Winning all three races in the same year is something truly special and also unprecedented in NEPSTA Div IV.

On Wednesday, 10/31, the Dublin Cross Country team capped off the RVAL season with another dominant performance at the league championship race hosted by BART, on the slopes of Mt. Greylock in Adams, MA. Dublin finished first as a team in the varsity girls and boys races, as well as in the JV boys race!

While the team is proud of their accomplishments to date, there is certainly a sense of unfinished business as we prepare for the final race of the season, the NEPSTA Championships at Marianapolis in Thompson, CT. Dublin runners will test themselves against the best in New England, facing off against 30+ schools! With the strongest boys and girls teams Dublin has ever seen, it is certain to be an exciting day. Stay tuned!
