September 22, 2018 – Morris Plains, NJ – The BC Cross Country team had a very successful day at the Magee Class Meet at Central Park of Morris on Saturday, 9/22. A “class” meet involves all runners competing in separate races based on their school class. The Crusaders were especially strong in the senior race, with Braedon Fiume finishing 5th, followed by Elias Shaia in 27th, and Graydon Nichols in 28th. BC was 5th among 48 teams in the senior race. Sophomore Owen McCarthy led his classmates by finishing 16th in the #4 time of the day for BC. Freshman Alex Shaia had the top finish of the day for Bergen by taking 4th in the Frosh race, followed by Matthew Marques in 15th place. When all 5k results were combined in the overall “merge,” the Crusaders finished 6th among 64 complete teams – by far the best showing by any North Jersey school.
Next up for the Crusaders is the Garret Invitational at Garret Mountain on Saturday, 9/29.
