Manhasset swept the meet, producing one of the most dominant performances in school history. The boys varsity team finished 1st of 17 in Class II, beating 2nd place Mepham by a wide margin of 17 points. 9 of the 10 varsity runners earned All-County honors by finishing in the top-25 of the race. Senior Tim Courts stole the individual honors of county champion with an overall 5K race time of 16:33.

Courts’ younger brother Chris (freshman) helped lead the junior varsity squad to a 20 point win as a team, winning the race with a personal best of 18:26.

The girls team had a dominant showing as well, led by individual county champion Kayleigh Caggiano (senior), who ran a 19:22 5K. Five girls earned All-County honors as the team secured its victory.

Manhasset’s top finishers will return to Bethpage this Saturday, November 7th, seeking to qualify for the state championships at Monroe-Woodbury High School in Central Valley, NY.

Nice work, runners!
