For the first time in 12 years the boys cross country team is going to the All-State Meet in Westfield, Massachusetts. The boys competed on Saturday at the Eastern Massachusetts Division Five meet and the team placed fourth in the division, earning the top seven runners a spot at the All-State meet. Sophomore Nick Murphy leaded the team, coming in sixth place overall with a time of 16:54. Seniors Sam Coppola, Josh Wildes, Ethan Bridgewater, Drew Fenton, and Brett Repke came in 17, 18, 27, and 71 respectively. Junior Noah Roche finished off the varsity team with a place of 115.

It had been a season goal for the team to get to All-States, and something that their coach, Darrell Cox, had been hoping for since last year.

    This is incredible that for the first time in twelve years that the boys cross country team made it to all-states! Who are the other teams competing in the race? Where does the cross country team go next if they win all-states? Good luck!!

    I find it amazing that during my time at the high school, the boys cross country team has managed to earn a spot in the All-State meet. I would argue competition for cross country is higher than most sports because of its vast size and simplicity. Because of this, it is outstanding to see that our boys have battled along side the toughest of opponents. I am surprised to hear that this is the first time in twelve years that the boys have qualified. This statement only adds to my astonishment. I also find it very interesting that Nick Murphy, a fellow sophomore and friend of mine, led the team in the Division Five meet. I knew he was talented, but I had no idea that he was the best on the team. I also remember first seeing him run in middle school when he ran nonstop for entire gym periods. It is unbelievable how much progress he has made.
