Haldane boys and girls cross country teams traveled to Croton Point Park on Sept. 23, for a rare mid-week meet to compete against Hendrick Hudson, Pawling, Peekskill and Ossining. “When given the opportunity to run at the park,” said Coach Tom Locascio, “I jumped at it. It is a beautiful course and the kids really like running there.”
For the boys, Nick Farrell finished second overall with a time of 17:26, Brian Haines placed fifth overall with 18:15, followed by Jonas Petkus, 10th with 19:18, Andrew Gannon, 13th at 19:03, Eric Rizzi, 16th at 19:18 and Jakob Howell, 18th at 19:56. Haldane boys finished second only to Pawling.
Haldane girls also finished second to Pawling. Ruby McEwen finished second overall with 20:54, Taylor Farrell seventh overall, 21:54, while Samantha Ricketts posted a 10th-place finish with 23:31.
The Blue Devils’ next meet will be Saturday, Sept. 27, at Bowdoin Park in Fishkill for the Bowdoin Classic.
