Varsity boys cross country finishes fourth at invitational

« Boardman Neighbors

Boardman’s Mitchel Dunham and Mark Moradian led the Spartans to a fourth place finish at this year’s Sim Earich Invitational recently, improving the varsity’s record to 108-56 for the 2017 season.

Scoring for the Boardman varsity, along with Dunham’s sixth place finish and Moradian’s eighth place effort, were senior Nick Lascola in 31st place in a time of 18:01, senior Matt Moradian in 39th with a time of 18:13 and freshman Caydin Newberry in 42nd overall out of 275 runners at 18:16.

“Very pleased with the effort,” said Spartan Head Coach John Phillips. “We are getting better at just the right time of the season, our district is quite possibly the most difficult in the state of Ohio with four state ranked teams and at least eight schools that could easily make it to Regionals, so we will need our very best next week to say the least.”

Setting a new personal best at the Trumbull Fairgrounds course were sophomore River Flatley at 19:49 and freshmen Michael Halchuck and Sal Buonamici at 20:46 and 22:27, respectively.
