For boys cross country, it was another strong season

Finishing with six Dual County League wins and only two losses, the Concord-Carlisle cross country team had a good season this year. The team placed sixth at the League Championship, running in the snow and mud.

C-C had not lost a meet since 1999, making this year especially emotional for seniors who had never been defeated in their high school careers. Both losses were close, with C-C narrowly being beaten by Lincoln-Sudbury and Newton South.

Injuries held back the training of top runners, leading this younger team to stumble. However, some Carlisle runners did exceptionally well. Senior Roy Bondurant came in fifth place at the League Championship and junior Dan Fidler came in fourteenth.

Starting with a younger team this year, the cross-country team hopes to have another undefeated season next season. JV never lost a meet and some potentially good runners emerged from the ranks. Coach Steve Lane has high hopes for next year saying, "I know this sounds lofty and arrogant, but we will be in States next year, if not win it."

The Concord-Carlisle cross-country team ran in the state meet Saturday, November 19, finishing 12th.
