He found success in some early season meets winning the Injury Fund XC Carnival in 15:27. Most recently at the Great American XC Festival, Principe led his team to a team title with his 7th place finish running 15:30. Future Stars Spotlight presented by Hoka One One.
Few days (if any) can match what happened this past Saturday for R.I. cross-country athletes. Down in North Carolina, the smallest state may have made the biggest impact at the Great American X-C Festival. La Salle Academy, ranked No. 2 according to MileSplit's national poll, captured the featured Race of Champions event with a slim eight-point victory over second-place Mariatta, Ga. If that wasn't enough, the girls' team took runner-up honors in the ROC race and the boys of Bishop Hendricken took the top prize in the seeded Invitational race. About a 1,000 miles north of the Great American,Cumberland earned the spotlight at Maine's Festival of Champions. For the fourth time, the Clipper boys copped the team title. The opening act for the Blue and White occured in the girls' event where junior Amy Laverty broke the tape a winner. Teamwise, the Lady Clippers were second overall. Lastly, defending state champion Emma McMillan of Barrington, achieved gold in Thetford, Vt., with a dominating triumph at the Wood Trails Run.
With the exception of a short-handed US #2 La Salle Academy boys of Rhode Island able to hold onto the team title, it was a complete Virginia take over over the top seeded Race of Champions at Great American with US #11 Andrew Hunter running the nation's fastest 5K time as the boys champ in 14:46, while sophomore Libby Davidson (US #25) won her second big race at WakeMed with a new 17:06 PR. Meanwhile, the US #7 Blacksburg girls crushed the team field including US #2 Saratoga Springs winning by a margin of 49 points with a 18:17 team average.
Two of the top ranked teams in the country raced this past weekend at the Bowdoin Classic in Saucony Flo50 preseason #1 ranked Christian Brothers Academy of New Jersey in their season opener race against previous Saucony Flo50 #4 La Salle Academy of Rhode Island. CBA may have won the meet and did nothing to hurt their case in holding onto their #1 position in the country, but the La Salle Academy boys also improved their stock.
At the Bowdoin XC Classic, the US #1 CBA boys came out on top 41 to 54 in the clash with US #4 La Salle Academy, while La Salle was missing one key runner Jack Salisbury from the race due to illness. CBA still was impressive in their team win with a 28 second spread for their top 5.

Rhode Island Teams Compete at 2012 Injury Fund in Burriville RI
August 20th marked the official start of the Cross Country practice season in the state of Rhode Island. All of the summer miles will start to pay off as many athletes return to their respective schools for the fall. MilesplitRI has taken the task of previewing both the Boys and the Girls competition for this coming year. Today we will be focusing on the boys individual competition.
The New Balance Indoor National Championships start Friday morning at the Armory in New York. MileSplit New England will follow the accomplishments of all the athletes from the region and post updates as they become available.
Brooklyn's Boys & Girls High School was right at home in New York City tonight at the Washington Heights Armory. The Kangaroos, long known for their success in the sprint relays (they are defending champs in the 1600 meter relay), notched a new title on their belt with an exhilarating come-from-behind win in the 3200 meter relay.
The La Salle Academy girls kicked off the 25th annual New England Indoor Track & Field Championships by smashing a state record in the 4x800-meter relay. That was just the opening act for the Rhode Island contingent that made its way to the March 2 meet.
A bit of gamesmanship is underway by the coaches of prominent teams in New England. The meet rules for the New England Championships state that an athlete can only be entered in four events including relays, and several coaches have their top tier athletes slated for the maximum allowable amount. The fact that an athlete can even qualify in four events is a testament to their tremendous talent, but the likelyhood that it will actually happen is slim.
Erica Johnson, a junior, became the first female in the 20-plus year history of the girls’ indoor state meet to win the 600 three consecutive years. Saturday, she clocked a victorious time of 1 minute, 35.37 seconds. Johnson broke into the lead almost immediately and maintained it throughout. (via www.eastbayri.com)
There are four divisions in R.I. girls’ indoor track and without a doubt the toughest of them all is the Headley Division. The nine-team division features three of the top six schools from last year’s state meet, including five-time defending champion La Salle Academy. (via www.woonsocketcall.com)
PROVIDENCE — Team titles in the four girls’ high school indoor track and field divisional championship meets held Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Providence Career & Tech Academy Fieldhouse went to Toll Gate in the Bayha bracket; Hope in Sullivan; LaSalle in Headley and local entry Portsmouth in the Dwyer Division. (via www.eastbayri.com)
Show stopping relays were the order of the week with the Yale Track Classic and the Massachusetts Division meets providing ample competition to tear apart the rankings. Some teams, like Marshfield (MA), had the luxury of doing both. They participated in the MSTCA Division 2 Relays last weekend, and then traveled to Yale Friday where they unleashed a US#1 DMR time of 10:17.40. That group was anchored by Joel Hubbard who split 4:14 for his mile leg.
The DMR was king on Friday with eight teams entering the US top ten. The Tatnall (DE) girls posted a US#2 time of 11:44.02 to lead a very talented field of challengers, and the Marshfield boys are now US#1 with their winning time of 10:17.40.
Like two runners hitting the finish tape simultaneously, the girls’ teams of La Salle and Classical finished with identical point totals (112) in the first of three coaches polls conducted by the R.I. Track & Field Foundation. The Rams are defending state team champs, and received seven first-place votes among the participating coaches, with the Purple getting three. (via www.eastbayri.com)
CHICAGO (January 12, 2012) — In its 27th year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, in collaboration with ESPN HS, today announced Molly Keating of La Salle Academy as its 2011-12 Gatorade Rhode Island Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year. Keating is the second Gatorade Rhode Island Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year to be chosen from La Salle Academy.
When Carla Forbes enters the New England rankings she does it with a splash. The Newton North junior was launching huge jumps at the Dartmouth Relays this past weekend, and her stellar performances that day resulted in a NE#1 ranking in both the long jump (19’4”) and the triple jump (40’10”). Nationally, she is now ranked US#1 in the triple jump and US#3 in the long jump. A key component to her success is runway speed, and Forbes demonstrated her aptitude with a NE#3 time of 7.31; finishing as the top American at Dartmouth.
The Dartmouth Relays is traditionally the first major invitational with regional implications. Teams from all six New England states are slated to participate, in addition to teams from New York and Canada. MileSplit will follow all the action from the two day event, updating this page with the most recent performances.
Catarina Rocha and Aisha McAdams enter Saturday's race with a wealth of credentials, but the pair will have plenty of company and a sea of maroon jerseys may envelop the two as the team battle rages in the front pack.
Having Edward Cheserek in the field forces some early decisions for the rest of the front pack. Do they attempt to go with him? Do they simply let him go and monitor the next major move from within the chase pack? One thing is certain, you had better be confident in the strategy you choose and commit to it wholeheartedly.
Several nationally ranked athletes are scheduled to compete, including the #2 and #4 400m runners in the country.
The release of the entries list on Monday put an end to the speculation regarding who will compete on Friday, but it still left many questions unanswered.
