With the fall season in full swing, CBA Cross Country notched three race wins in the span of three weeks.
On September 23, the Colts traveled to the Bowdoin Classic in Wappingers Falls, New York and came home with the overall title. It is the third straight year that CBA has won the Bowdoin Classic.
All five scorers finished in the top nine of the race, which made for a 16:07.8 average. It is the fastest average by any New Jersey school at Bowdoin and the second fastest in course history.
Junior Joe Barrett won the race in 15:50.1 and senior Jack Falkowski was just behind in second in 15:54.8. Those are the third and fourth fastest times in CBA history at Bowdoin.
Senior Conor Clifford, senior Alex Kemp and sophomore Wyatt Falkowski rounded out CBA's dominant squad.
Just a week later, Christian Brothers topped the Shore Coaches Invitational at Holmdel Park. Despite the wet conditions, the Colts still ran a meet record 15:59.1 average, which is the second best time in Holmdel Park History.
The blistering pace was good enough to defeat NJ No. 2 Westfield in the race.
Barrett once again was the race winner in 15:36, followed by Falkowski in second place in 15:41.
Wrapping up their three week stretch, the Colts won the Monmouth County Championship for the 22nd year in a row. The win was CBA's 54th overall county title.
Sophomore Sean Galvin led the way with a fourth place finish in 16:25. Sophomore Luke Hnatt was not far behind in sixth place in 16:29 and freshman Gavin Schmitt took 10th in 16:54.
The Colts will now look forward to the Manhattan Invitational on October 14 and the Shore Conference Championship on October 19.
