St. George's
St. Mark's Home Win 15-50

St. Mark’s hosted St. George’s for an early season dual race. The SM grounds crew has done a great job renovating parts of the course and getting it ready for our season. It should be a wonderful venue for the ISL Championships on November 1. St. Mark’s ended the day with a victory over St. George’s (15-50). Third formers Ben Croft ’23 and Austin Hunt ’23 led the way for SM in their first high school races. They were followed by Jack Griffin ’20, Matteo Macri ’21, Noon Chanshanwut ’21, Assistant Captain Will Osborne ’20, and Assistant Captain Ryder Henry ’20. While we graduated some key parts of our 2018 undefeated junior varsity team last spring, the addition of Ben and Austin and the improvement of our other scorers (a testament to their off-season training) have been a real boost to the program as it extended its regular season undefeated streak, which dates back to 2015, to 54-0. Overall, SM took the top eight, and nine of the top ten, places in the junior varsity race. After a tough week of training, we will face two deep Division one rivals, Belmont Hill and St. Paul’s, in Southborough next weekend.

James was followed by Jack Griffin ’20, Ben Croft ’23, Austin Hunt ’23, Assistant Captain Ryder Henry ’20, Noon Chanshanwut ’21, and Assistant Captain Will Osborne ’20. The JV team extended its regular season undefeated streak, which dates back to 2015, to 56-0. Overall, SM took the top four, and seven of the top ten, places in this quad race. We will face teams from Milton, Middlesex, and Thayer at home next weekend.

vs.
Governor's Academy
St. Mark's Home Win 15-50

St. Mark’s hosted Governor’s Academy for our Parents’ Weekend race.

vs.
Tabor
Tabor Away Win 20-39

St. Mark’s travelled to Marion for a quad race at Tabor against the host, Groton, and Roxbury Latin. This promised to be a fast race. Tabor’s course is flat and fast, and the weather was great for racing. Although the SM JV XC team has not lost a regular season race since 2015 (66-0 over that period), there were concerns about this race given the quality of our opponents and the fact that we were missing two runners who normally finish in our top five (and another top five finisher got injured during the race). Other runners, however, stepped up and ran great races. As a result, St. Mark’s ended the day with three more wins (albeit some close ones): Groton (23-32), Roxbury Latin (26-30), and Tabor (20-39). Crawford Wittmann ’21 returned from an injury and led the way for St. Mark’s. Jack Griffin ’20, Ben Croft ‘23, Noon Chanshanwut ’21, Assistant Captain Will Osborne ’20, Andy Zhou ’22, and Bennett Jones ’22 followed as our other scorers/displacers. Crawford and Bennett earned season PRs. We will travel to Lawrence Academy next weekend and face the hosts, St. Sebastian’s, and Rivers.

ISLs
St. Mark's Home 4th Place (out of 16)

St. Mark’s hosted the 48th ISL Cross Country Championships on the first day of November. After a week of rain and howling winds, the weather cooperated with sunny skies and good running temperatures (although the wind was still blowing). After a strong season, during which we compiled a 16-0 record, the JV team ran well, but was missing three runners to illness or injury and finished fourth behind strong teams from Middlesex, Groton, and Roxbury Latin. Mateo Macri ’21 finished first for us, followed by a group of young scorers/displacers that included: Andy Zhou ’22, Ben Croft ’23, Bennett Jones ’22, Austin Hunt ’23, Ben Bundy ’23, and Assistant Captain Will Osborne ’20. Next on the schedule: the NEPSTA Division I cross-country Championships at NMH. Complete times and finishes for the ISLs can be found here: http://www.coolrunning.com/results/19/ma/Nov1_ISLCro_set1.shtml

New Englands
NMH Away 5th Place (out of 15)

St. Mark’s traveled to Northfield Mount Hermon for the Division One New England Cross Country Championships. The day was sunny and cold, and NMH had its course in great shape. While St. Mark’s is by far the smallest school in this race, SM turned in a fine performance, finishing in the fifth spot of fifteen schools, ahead of Choate, NMH, Hotchkiss, Taft, Milton, Belmont Hill, Deerfield, Avon Old Farms, Trinity-Pawling, and Brunswick. Ben Croft ‘23 led our team and finished 12th overall. Mateo Macri ‘21 followed Ben and finished 16th. As a result, both Ben and Mateo were recognized with ribbons for finishing in the top twenty of this fast race. Austin Hunt ’23, Assistant Captain Ryder Henry ’20, Bennett Jones ’22, Assistant Captain Will Osborne ’20, and Ben Bundy ’23 completed our list of scorers and displacers.

St. Mark’s travelled to Marion for a quad race at Tabor against the host, Groton, and Roxbury Latin. This promised to be a fast race. Tabor’s course is flat and fast, and the weather was great for racing. Although the SM JV XC team has not lost a regular season race since 2015 (66-0 over that period), there were concerns about this race given the quality of our opponents and the fact that we were missing two runners who normally finish in our top five (and another top five finisher got injured during the race). Other runners, however, stepped up and ran great races. As a result, St. Mark’s ended the day with three more wins (albeit some close ones): Groton (23-32), Roxbury Latin (26-30), and Tabor (20-39). Crawford Wittmann ’21 returned from an injury and led the way for St. Mark’s. Jack Griffin ’20, Ben Croft ‘23, Noon Chanshanwut ’21, Assistant Captain Will Osborne ’20, Andy Zhou ’22, and Bennett Jones ’22 followed as our other scorers/displacers. Crawford and Bennett earned season PRs. We will travel to Lawrence Academy next weekend and face the hosts, St. Sebastian’s, and Rivers.

St. Mark's Home Details 4th Place (out of 16)

St. Mark’s hosted the 48th ISL Cross Country Championships on the first day of November. After a week of rain and howling winds, the weather cooperated with sunny skies and good running temperatures (although the wind was still blowing). After a strong season, during which we compiled a 16-0 record, the JV team ran well, but was missing three runners to illness or injury and finished fourth behind strong teams from Middlesex, Groton, and Roxbury Latin. Mateo Macri ’21 finished first for us, followed by a group of young scorers/displacers that included: Andy Zhou ’22, Ben Croft ’23, Bennett Jones ’22, Austin Hunt ’23, Ben Bundy ’23, and Assistant Captain Will Osborne ’20. Next on the schedule: the NEPSTA Division I cross-country Championships at NMH.

NMH Away Details 5th Place (out of 15)

St. Mark’s traveled to Northfield Mount Hermon for the Division One New England Cross Country Championships. The day was sunny and cold, and NMH had its course in great shape. While St. Mark’s is by far the smallest school in this race, SM turned in a fine performance, finishing in the fifth spot of fifteen schools, ahead of Choate, NMH, Hotchkiss, Taft, Milton, Belmont Hill, Deerfield, Avon Old Farms, Trinity-Pawling, and Brunswick. Ben Croft ‘23 led our team and finished 12th overall. Mateo Macri ‘21 followed Ben and finished 16th. As a result, both Ben and Mateo were recognized with ribbons for finishing in the top twenty of this fast race. Austin Hunt ’23, Assistant Captain Ryder Henry ’20, Bennett Jones ’22, Assistant Captain Will Osborne ’20, and Ben Bundy ’23 completed our list of scorers and displacers. We had a great race overall, and it was a fitting conclusion to a wonderful season.
