Norton Boys Beat DS in a THRILLER 25-30!!

What an unbelievable meet today!  The girls had 5/9 PR's in their race while the boys had 7/22 PR's!!  The boys race was most definitely in my top 3 XC races I have ever coached!  The boys ran with heart and did everything they could to win that meet!  I could not be more proud. 
 One of the best finishes of the year!!
 Cam and Mason literally gave everything they had for the win (pictured post-run)!!
 Freshman Connor Johnson running strong!!

On the boys side, Billy Sullivan, Max Marcotte, and Mike Tierney did their thing running 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for Norton, but it was the huge step up for Cam Eisnor (4th) and Mason Rouillard (5th) who won this meet for the Lancer boys. Only 13 seconds total was the difference with places 4th through tenth in the closest meet of the season.  Norton placed 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th while DS placed 1st, 4th, 6th, 9th, and 10th.  As a spectator, after the top four came in it was a tie (DS 1+4=5) (Norton 2+3=5), which brought it all down to 6th-10th who again, all finished within 11 seconds of each other!!

The top 5 Norton boys ran a sub 6:00 pace for the victory (one of our season goals!). 

Congrats to the boys for tying the most wins we have ever had in cross country since joining the Tri-Valley league at 6-2 (including non-league)!  Just one more win and we will officially have the best season cross country has ever had since joining the Tri-Valley League! 

On the girls side, freshman phenom Caroline Weber placed 3rd overall for the Lancers, right behind senior captain Alison Alioto with a phenomenal run.  Corrina Jurczyk was Norton's first runner and prevented DS (last year's state champs) from a perfect score.  Rounding out 4th and 5th for the Lady Lancers was senior captains Brittany Alioto and Katie D'Onofrio.

 Junior and first Norton finisher Corrina Jurczyk
 Senior Captain Allison Alioto sprints to the finish.
My Seniors :o)

Norton will next compete away versus Westwood next Wednesday, October 10th.

Norton Boys Win Both in Non-League Tri-Meet Versus West Bridgewater and Abington; Girls Split

Congrats to the Norton boys who beat both West Bridgewater (25-31) and Abington (17-43) in their first and only non-league tri-meet of the season.  The boys move to  4-1 on the season with their two wins in West Bridgewater.  The boys meet versus West Bridgewater was very close as Petti from West Bridgewater held a 5:20 pace over the 2.9 mile course and won the race.  However, Norton had plans to foil them as their training paid off this week with the top 4 boys running a sub-6:00 per mile pace.  Billy Sullivan ran a 5:37 pace for second overall while teammate Max Marcotte was right behind him with a 5:39 pace.  Mike Tierney (5:54) and Mason Rouillard (5:59) placed third and fourth for the Lancers placing 5th and 6th respectively.  Rounding out the top 5 for the boys was Cam Eisnor.

The girls got their second win of the season routing Abington 15-50.  Norton got their top 5 girls in before the first Abington could get their first girl to the finish.  Senior Captain Allison Alioto ran a great race placing second overall placing not to far behind Norton's top girl Corrina Jurczyk. Brittany Alioto, freshman Caroline Weber, and Katie D'Onofrio placed 3rd through 5th for the Lady Lancers.  Unfortunately, the West Bridgewater girls were too tough for the Lancers, winning 17-44. 

Norton will next compete against TVL foe Medfield this Monday at home at 3:30!
