Coming off of a season filled with unexpected obstacles last year, the Boys’ Cross Country Team has hit the ground running regardless. Led by captains Henry Wood (VI) and Sahdev Patel (VI), with the support of coaches Mr. Matt Horesta and Mr. Tim Lear ‘92, the team is looking for key victories at some of their toughest invitationals. 

With five new freshmen entering the team this year, Wood is excited that the “new people show promise,” as the team is the “strongest we’ve had in a long time.” Mr. Horesta added that the freshmen “will hopefully fit nicely with the solid group we had last year, who are now sophomores.” When asked about the team’s season thus far, Mr.  Horesta said the “season is off to a great start;” he is eager to see the team’s successes this year. Finally, he notes that after “looking at time trials and workouts, the team is ready to match some of the best Pingry teams we’ve ever had.”
