The Boys Cross Country team capped its season with a series of personal best times in the League, District, and State meets at the end of the season. Will Fendler ’26 hit his personal record at the Metro League meet at Principia, followed by similar achievements by Jacob Daus ’25Alexander McCarter ’25Hale Foster ’25, and Cam Martin ’25Lawrence Lee ’27Daniel Haas ’27, and Shrey Radhakrishnan ’27 ended their first year with the team by peaking as the season closed as well. At the District meet, in an effort to qualify for State, Heru Bey ’27 ran his best meet of the season on a challenging course in a cold, wet wind. Alex Bierling ’25 also dashed to his best, and Forest Gong ’27 completed the 3.1-mile course quickly. Captains Liam McCarthy ’24 and Wyatt Dickherber ’24 both qualified for State in Columbia the following week with a 27th and 28th place finish at Districts. At State, McCarthy passed 27 runners in the final kilometer to finish in 17:37.10, only a few seconds off of his best time, and Dickherber closed hard to run his best ever time. The team was pleased to see these two terrific leaders have such a strong close to the season and are looking forward to building on the team spirit they helped forge during the year. The Rams will be returning with a strong core of athletes who’ve benefited from a sustained work ethic over this and past seasons and look to return to State with the full squad next year.
