For the first time in CH-CH history, the Cross-Country team bested all competition, winning the 2017 Massachusetts Bay Independent League Championship. The Chargers had four runners finish in the top 20 to help secure the victory with a team score of 63.
Coach Jon Andruchow noted, “Our top five runners executed our game plan perfectly. Cam B. ’19 showed a lot of patience when that top pack made a move in the second mile and was able to take home third place. Tyler S. ’19 continued to be our team’s rock, running in 6th place pretty much start to finish. Rob M. ’19 and Sam D. ’20 found themselves in the high 20s from the outset but just kept chipping away and chipping away, passing enough runners to move up to 11th and 14th. This was our largest margin of victory all season, which is a testament of how hard this team works at bettering themselves day in and day out.”
This was the meet the team had been training for all season and it showed. Cam B. ’19 set a new boys' course record of 18:54; Emily C. ’19 set a new girls' course record of 24:17. Four runners won All-League recognition following the race: Cam B. ’19, Tyler S. ’19, Rob M. ’19, and Sam D. ’20. The top 7 Charger finishers listed below:
