On Saturday September 28th the IMS cross country team traveled to Cheshire Academy to compete in the 10th annual O’Connell Invitational meet. The team traveled lightly due to the 8th grade wilderness trip but those that competed all did very well.
Jack Gottsegen (in his first year of running) led IMS by finishing first overall in the entire meet. Jack led the way defeating over 200 runners from around New England to capture the Junior Prep school title! Great running Jack! Jack competed the 1.7mile course in 9:38 (5:40 mile pace). Walter K finished as the 2nd Falcon runner in a time of 10:32 (6:14 mile pace), followed by Kevin O in 11:27 with a mile pace of 6:44, Bruno S in a time of 11:55 (7:00 mile pace). Morgen I led the way on the female side with a time of 12:21 (7:15 mile pace) followed by Emma S in a time of 12:32 (7:22 mile pace).
