Event Recap:The LCA guys put a good foot forward in their first official league meet against three tough teams. A position or two different and we would be talking about an undefeated league record, so these guys have no reason to hang their heads. A number of young guys stepped up this week and put in some wonderful performances. Chris Rosa 21' came in 8th overall and 3rd for the lions, while another freshman Calvin Wu 21' joined the varsity ranks by being our 7th runner this week. The youth movement continued with an exceptional performance by Alex Cravens 20', who won the race by a minute and 20 seconds. Jay Lee 20' continued to make his imprint on the top 7 as he finished 17th overall and 4th on the team. Rounding out the top 7 were veterans Stephan Wallace 18' coming in at 4th overall, and Tim Zhou 19' coming in at 22nd. Stephen Berry 19', although only his first year, is showing that he's got all the goods to be a solid XC runner for LCA not only this year, but next year as he worked through some knee pain to finish in 19th place. The Lions have a tough test ahead of them next week at home as they will face for the first time Pingree and Concord, two perennial powerhouses in the EIL League.
