Haverford High completes championship trifecta
Congratulations to Haverford XC runners on a busy and successful week. First, on Wednesday at Coopertown, the Haverford boys finished their undefeated dual-meet season by beating Lower Merion, Marple Newtown, and Penncrest. Mike Donnelly continued his extraordinary season by winning the individual competition. The Haverford girls ran well, defeating Penncrest and Marple en route to a second place finish. We also celebrated our HXC seniors, who are wonderful and will be sorely missed. All results are HERE.
Then on Saturday, the Haverford boys varsity won the Central League Championship at Rose Tree. HXC’s top seven runners finished in the top eighteen, securing a hard-fought victory over Lower Merion. Anthony Lawson ran exceptionally well in the JV race, placing fourth. For the Haverford girls varsity, Katrina Miciek and Connie Katcavage both medaled with outstanding races. Rachel Woodman and Nina Ottaviano had great races for the JV. Thanks to Mary Campbell and all of our HXC families for making the traditional post-race feast huge and delicious and perfect. We appreciate you. Results are HERE.
Onward to the District 1-AAA Championships!
The HXC boys varsity made history on Saturday, winning the Delco team championship for the first time. Mike Donnelly was the individual champion, Josh Fingerhut was third, Brendan Campbell was fourth, Evan Peetros was sixth, and Aiden Tomov was ninth. It was an outstanding performance on a wet, muddy course. In the boys JV race, Brian Walheim was the individual champion, Anthony Lawson placed third, and freshman Chris Potter was fifth. Stellar work.
The girls JV squad was second overall with an exceptional run by Paula Abruzzo, who was the second individual. The girls varsity was fourth in the team competition, with Connie Catcavage (18th) and Katrina Miciek (22nd) running extremely well.
Results are HERE.
Congratulations to all of our runners. Go Fords!
