First Cross Country Invitational
October 20th, 2016
The St. Peter’s Cross Country team traveled to Fairmount Park to take on runners from Friends Select, Friends School Haverford and Phil-Mont Christian. The warm weather did not hinder the team who earned 7 of the top 14 and 11 of the top 20 places. Our top three runners, 6th graders Silas Grasse and Harry Murphy and 5th grader Jack Sullivan, set the pace and worked hard only to be outlasted in the second half of the race. The team rallied around each runner and supported all runners en route to the first every team cross country invitational meet. The team is looking ahead to Saturday and their final race at Belmont Plateau before the team joins community members in the Alex’s Lemonade Lemon Run in November.
