On Saturday the Cross Country team competed in the 52nd Annual Reavis Rams Invite. In the Varsity race, Joe Sweeney took control after the mile and opened up a 20 yard lead on the field. His move turned out to be a little too much too soon as two other runners caught him in the final quarter mile. He was able to get one back and finish 2nd overall.
The Crusaders has two others in the top 25 with Jack Mongan (17th) and Steve Sloan (24th).
The Frosh/Soph placed 5th as a team. Dan Spellman was the top Crusader getting 3rd followed closely by Tommy Gleeson in 5th.
This Saturday the team will send four runners to Peoria to race at Detweiller Park, the site of the state meet, while the rest of the team will compete in the Argo Invite.
