St.Francis De Sales Competes On Chilly Cross Country Weekend
The cross-country season continued for the St. Francis de Sales runners on Sunday, October 29th with a series of races of varied distances at Alley Pond Park under chilly and blustery, to put it mildly, conditions. Among the outstanding performances were: Frances Amodeo placing 4th overall in the Senior girls 1.1 mile race; Alex Goldberg and John O'Connor placing 1st and 2nd in the Novice boys half-mile race; Conor Gallagher winning the Junior boys mile race; and Liam Lachner and Sean Rivera placing 1st and 2nd in the Bantam boys mile race. The Sectional Championships on Sunday, November 5th are next for the SFDS runners. Not only will the runners be competing for individual medals, but they will also compete as a team with their finishing place counting as points. The team with the lowest total is champion; the next lowest score is second, etc. The season will end on Sunday, November 12th with the Diocesan Championships.
