Cross Country Update Fall 2022

While Belmont Hill Cross Country is early into their season, they have had a promising start winning their first race against Milton Academy 20-40. Additionally, during the second race of their season, they beat Middlesex and Governor’s Academy by substantial margins and only narrowly lost to Roxbury Latin by two points. All the runners gutted out the second race on a challenging course, and, with such close margins between the two best teams in the ISL, the team is in store for an excellent season with auspicious chances at winning the ISL Championship. 

Will Trautz ‘27 led an exceptional race against Roxbury Latin finishing 3rd overall in the varsity race and first for Belmont Hill. Led by captains Aaron Stanger ‘24 and Jeremy Eaton ‘23, alongside coaches Trautz, Gorman, DeCaprio, and Harder, the team is working hard in practices and during races in hopes of winning ISLs. Additionally, the team is exceptionally young, with no seniors on Varsity and two middle-schoolers in the top five Varsity runners. 

Additionally, over the summer, several team members attended a week-long running camp in the Berkshires to prepare for the season, and their work is paying dividends. The teams have packed together both in Varsity and Junior Varsity, and if you attend a race, you will likely see a big cluster of Belmont Hill jerseys leading.

Though the racing season is only beginning, these past two races have proved incredibly promising for the future of the Cross Country team this season, placing Belmont Hill among the front runners in the league. The team looks forward to a competitive race this Saturday, competing with Tabor, Brooks, and St. Sebastians.
