  • The Freshman's Guide to Running Cross Country

    Far more often than ever before, a freshman enters his or first XC season with certain expectations from coaches and teammates. Could this be the one who fills in our gap from 4th to 5th. Could it be that diamond in the rough my opponents always seem to get? Could this group give us the depth we so badly need? Could this whole class bring us a state title three years down the line? But anyone who has ever been a freshman knows that those expectations, however possible, are foolish to lavish upon a group of kids who are so busy worrying about the Pretty Little Liars finale and finding a TBT pic for Insty, that they either don't notice them or don't care... or much worse, crumble underneath them. This is for them... those kids joining their respective teams for the first time this week. Nervous, bewildered, excited, or apathetic, here's everything you need to know about cross country.

  • X-C boys' preview: Team unity could bring home title for Rams

    The favored label is clearly on the singlets of the La Salle runners. Without a single athlete gone from their top 14 - a team that would later win the New England title and capture the indoor state crown - the Rams have a chance to not only win their first X-C team title since 1983, but shine outside the borders, too.

  • Virtual Meet match-up: Cumberland boys vs. East Greenwich

    We all know that adding more teams to the mix, such as at an invitational or championship meet, can make a difference in how two teams with similar abilities can be separated by a larger margin than if they faced each other head-to-head. For this week’s Virtual Meet we are going to take two boys’ teams that fit into that category – East Greenwich and Cumberland. The two squads were third and fourth, respectively, in our state meet rankings with the Avengers scoring 112 points and the Clippers compiling 125.
