  • The Freshman's Guide to Running Cross Country

    Far more often than ever before, a freshman enters his or first XC season with certain expectations from coaches and teammates. Could this be the one who fills in our gap from 4th to 5th. Could it be that diamond in the rough my opponents always seem to get? Could this group give us the depth we so badly need? Could this whole class bring us a state title three years down the line? But anyone who has ever been a freshman knows that those expectations, however possible, are foolish to lavish upon a group of kids who are so busy worrying about the Pretty Little Liars finale and finding a TBT pic for Insty, that they either don't notice them or don't care... or much worse, crumble underneath them. This is for them... those kids joining their respective teams for the first time this week. Nervous, bewildered, excited, or apathetic, here's everything you need to know about cross country.

  • X-C Girls Team Standings By Outdoor 1 Mile Times !

    We usually like to average only the top 4 times, because it allows us to include more teams in the mix. Take a look how close Lincoln Sudbury and Needham are when we average the Top 4 Milers on each team. They are separated by six tenths of one second. If we go five deep. L-S is ahead by 1.1 seconds.  It really doesn't mean a great deal on Labor Day weekend, but both teams will be fun to watch all season. The complete list is available to MileSplit Insiders.

  • Lowell coach coaching students to be winners beyond athletics

      LOWELL -- Phil Maia has been the driving force behind the Lowell High boys cross-country and indoor/outdoor track teams' impressive run of more than three decades. A teacher-coach in the truest sense, the 56-year-old Maia is in his 32nd year as a Spanish and Portuguese teacher at Lowell High School. Maia views the courses his athletes race on as an extension of the classroom, a place where they learn values that make them winners in the game of life. He has been the head coach of cross country since 1986. He has been the head boys indoor track coach dating to 1997. He was the head outdoor track coach from 1984 to 1997, and now serves as an assistant.

  • X-C Boys Team Standings By Outdoor 1 Mile Times !

    How Cool is the Milesplit Database ? Now let me make this clear, this is just a nice scouting report and by no means a prediction of the All State finals. As a Milesplit Insider you have the tools to do all kinds of statistic analysis. We took all the outdoor 1 Mile times for the returning cross-country runners. Then we scored them by the average time of the four fastest per team.  The database ranked them and scored them like a cross-country meet. The complete list is available to MileSplit Insiders.

  • Ipswich's Kinnare hopes for healthy senior year of running for Cornell

    It was a case of so far, so good for Ipswich resident Kieran Kinnare in late August.  A week away from the start of cross-country practices for Cornell University, the incoming senior was looking forward to what he hopes will be a full year of cross-country and track and field.  He hasn’t enjoyed an injury-free year since stepping on campus in Ithaca, N.Y., back in 2011 after a mammoth career at Ipswich High.  "I’ve had a lot of Achilles [tendon] problems and a lot of knee problems," said Kinnare, an information science major at Cornell. "For instance, I had a maltracking kneecap, where the kneecap slides in the wrong path, and it’s not fully resting on the cartilage. It was not great.
