Hawks Make History At Manhattan Invitational

The Hawks are for real!

With its most impressive performance in school history at Saturday's Manhattan Invitational, Bishop Hendricken won the individual title in the ultra-competitive Eastern States Championship. How impressive was the Hawks' performance on Van Cortlandt Park's challenging four-killometer terrain? For starters, all five of their scoring runners clocked a time under 13 minutes. In winning the title, Hendricken no doubt moved up in status in the national rankings. The Hawks, who were ranked No. 12,  defeated  No. 3 Fayetteville-Manlius, 92-113. Finishing third was Clarmont with 117. 

Aidan Tierney led the barrage for Hendricken by finishing seventh overall in 12:35.8. The remaining quintet consisted of Jack McMahon (13th, 12:46.0), Matt St. Jean (18th, 12:48.1), Luke Henseler (22nd, 12:49.6) and David DelBonis (32nd, 12:56.0).
