Boys Cross Country Back In Action At Harrison Invitational

Posted on: September 22, 2016

SETTING THE SCENE:   This weekend the MHS boys cross country squad will travel to the Harrison High School Cross Country Invitational.  Held at Harrison High School, the flat, fast course will be ideal for a mid-season race, hopefully in low humidity.  Last week the boys team placed seventh at their own Milford Invitational at Valley View Nature Preserve.


A LOOK BACK:  The Eagles hosted the Milford Invitational on Sat., Sept. 24th, with one hundred and fifty boys varsity runners among seventeen teams.  Harris Craycraft was the first Varsity Eagle to finish, as he placed 21st in 17.53.  The other top Milford runners were close behind and all within one minute of each other, including Clayton Virzi (25th, 17.59), Peter Kroeger (7th, 18.00), Sean Vonderhaar (43rd, 18.14) and Luke Schneider (56th, 18.28).

The team finished the meet in 7th place out of 17 teams, and third among the four ECC teams competing.  The team from Indian Hill dominated at the finish and won the Invite by more than fifty points over Turpin, the second-place team.  Moeller was third, and the ECC’s Loveland finished sixth.

THE WEEK AHEAD:  The Eagles hit the trails again at the Harrison High School Cross Country Invitational at Harrison High School.  The Invite will be held on Sat., Sept. 24th, and the boys varsity team will head to the start line at 9:40 am. 


INSIDE THE ECC:  There were few changes in the ECC Standings following week four of competition, and as the rankings for Harris Craycraft (7th) and Clayton Virzi (8th) remain unchanged from the previous week.  Sean Vonderhaar is now tied for 17th, and Peter Kroeger is tied for 19th.  Luke Schneider continued to rank in the top fifty, at 45th


POLL WATCH:  St. Xavier held off Mason to remain number one in the fourth week of the Cincinnati Enquirer area coaches’ poll.  Elder remained in third, while Lebanon snuck past LaSalle and are fourth and fifth respectively.  The ECC’s Kings moved to sixth from eighth, and Loveland moved down to eighth from last week’s seventh place ranking.  Fellow conference member Turpin held onto tenth.  Milford fell out of the poll in week four, while Anderson received four votes.
