Today, the Tiger Cross Country kicked off with a practice meet against DuPont Manual. The Tigers tore up the race course with 9 of the first 10 finishers being St. X racers. Matthew Thomas finished first with a 16:06 followed by Spencer Hayden who edged out Manual’s number one runner Yared Nuguse. Hayden ran a 16:24.

The Tigers showed they had great depth with underclassmen stepping up such as sophomore Patrick Schaefer who placed fourth overall, freshmen Zach Larkin and Eoin Corbett, and sophomores Eric Portaro, Joey Schrepferman, Clay Meiers, and Cooper Marchal. Senior Michael Porter was also in the top 10 finishers for the Tigers.

The Tigers should once again have a great season and have a chance to compete and win state. The Tigers’ next race will be Tiger Run on Saturday, August 29th.
