The St. Mark's varsity boys' runners traveled to Cheshire Academy on Saturday and returned as the New England Champions for the second straight year! All our runners submitted excellent performances. Co-captain Austin Brock ('08 - 17:59) led the way for St. Mark's on the tough course, finishing second overall. Austin was followed by Jim Walker ('09 -- 18:13), Shaun Viguerie ('08 -- 18:29), co-captain Abbott Gilbane ('08 - 18:34), Walter Cabot ('09 -- 18:46), Hoitt McAllister ('08 -- 18:52), and Sam Lawfer ('09 -- 19:06). Austin Brock ('08), Jim Walker ('09), Shaun Viguerie ('08), Abbott Gilbane ('08), and Walter Cabot ('09) were all named to the All-New England team. Hoitt McAllister ('08)and Sam Lawfer ('09) earned that status last year so, we ultimately had seven All-New England runners on one squad. I doubt that that achievement has been matched.

We will certainly miss the departing Sixth Formers, but they have created the foundations of an excellent program.
