Cross Country—Southington traveled to Wickham Park in Manchester for the second time this season and received a preview of the postseason after competing in the 34th annual Wickham Invitational. However, the 70-degree weather didn’t help either team’s cause. The boys team finished second to last by place and dead last by time in the championship varsity race. The girls team finished dead last by place and time in the championship varsity race. Conner Leone paced the boys team with a time of 17:29, finishing 29th out of 87 runners. Then there was a big gap between Connor Leone and the next male Southington runner. Sean Young (55th, 18:30), Matt Penna (60th, 18:44), Ryan Slesinski (62nd, 18:51), and Shane Leone (71st, 19:00) also scored. Tanner Sperry (72nd, 19:00) and Jeff Hannigan (85th, 19:58) contributed. Cheshire’s Brendan Murray (15:58) beat out Shelton’s Robert Dillon (16:15) to win the race. Xavier (53) beat out Staples (66) to finish first overall as a team. In a smaller field of only 37 runners, Natalia Adamczyk paced the girls team with a time of 21:44, finishing 16th. Kailey Schmarr (20th, 22:04), Sarah Minkiewicz (21st, 22:16), Isabella Scalise (29th, 22:53), and Laini Pizzitola (37th, 24:46) also scored. Erin McGill (20:13) and Alexandra Ross (20:14) marshaled the Tomahawks (15) to a first-place finish over Cheshire (86), as five of Glastonbury’s seven runners in the race graced the finish line first. The Knights will be back on the trails next week when they host divisional NW Catholic at Camp Sloper in their regular season finale on Tuesday, Oct. 10. Meet time is 4 p.m. The boys team is currently 5-2, and the girls team is currently 3-4.
