A "perfect score" in cross country occurs when one team places all seven of its runners in front of the first runner of the opposing team for a score of 15-50.
Not only did the Islander boys’ septet consisting of Ben Enowitz, David Grimes, Kevin Siefert, Ben Green, Turner Stanley, Andrew Centeno, and Michael Davies do this against Madison last Tuesday, they threw-in Sean O'Brien and Cotter Stacey in the eighth and ninth places for good measure.
The girls placed Sallie Privett, Adie Davies, Annie Lovering, Cassie Callahan, and Coco O'Brien in front of the Warhawks' first runner, followed by Selina Schmeck in seventh to win easily 15-44. Freshman Sadie Gimber sat this one out to rest a sore ankle.
In one of the boys varsity events Enowitz clocked a fast time of 16:18 to finish second over the challenging 3-mile course. Ben and his support group, the aforementioned septet, with Stacy ably substituting for Stanley, placed seventh as a team in their race.
Next week's meet with Christian October 30th will be for the Central League championship for both the boys and girls squads. The Islanders and Patriots girls' teams will arrive with records of 4-0. The Islander boys also have a 4-0 record and go against a strong Christian team that lost only to Clairemont in a close meet. Last week we beat Clairemont by a scant seven points so this match-up will be hard-fought on both sides.
The meet place and time is at Morley Field at 3pm. Come out and watch your Islander harriers in action. Parking and admission are free. Excitement is guaranteed.
