  • New England College Roundup

    Slowly but surely cross country action in Massachusetts and the rest of New England is heating up. Even though it’s still early and quite a few squads are resting top runners, there were plenty of exciting races throughout this past weekend. At the heart of all of this weekend’s actions was the UMASS Minuteman Invitational. Boston College, University of Vermont, University of Maine, UCONN, Sacred Heart, and Amherst College converged on Saturday at the challenging bucolic course nestled in the UMass Amherst campus. For a few teams this was their first showing of the year and a chance to shake off some of the summer rust. Though for everyone it served as an opportunity to have some fun at a quicker pace and shorter distance (Men 6k, Women 5k).

  • Aarden Leads Hopkinton at Big Wave Invitational

      Hopkinton's Shelby Aarden wasn't familiar with the 2.5-mile course at Saturday's Big Wave Cross Country Invitational so the senior harrier told herself she'd stay with the pack and let the race place itself out. Only then would she make a strong move to the front. So much for pre-race strategy.

  • Pre-Season Virtual Meet: Boys Eastern Division 6 Championships

    This was a two team race in 2013, and it looks like much of the same this season. Manchester Essex won the close battle in 2014, but Coyle returns a solid squad and it should come down to the wire once again to decide our D6 Champion.

  • Pre-Season Virtual Meet: Girls Eastern Division 5 Championships

    We have been writing a great deal about the Lincoln-Sudbury and Needham talent, but we by no means are overlooking the depth and dominance of Hamilton Wenham. The All State D2 Champions are returning 6 of 7 runners from the All State meet a year ago. They walked away with the State title by 50+ points and look poised to do it all over again this season. They won by that margin with top runner Emily Weigand running in the number 6 spot.  When the dust is settled they just maybe the strongest in the state no matter what division.

  • Pre-Season Virtual Meet: Boys Eastern Division 5 Championships

    This should be an interesting Division to watch in 2014, as we have three horses in the race for the title. Hamilton Wenham, Seekonk, and Newburyport all have strong teams coming back. Newburyport is our defending champion, but the virtual meet is pointing us at Hamilton Wenham.

  • What's On Tap this Weekend ?

    The Invitational season kicks off with a couple of coastal meets. Up in Cape Ann Country, the 10th Annual Clipper Relays will be held in Newburyport. The perfect opening meet for many teams as they will carry a baton in teams of three around the rolling hills of beautful Maudsley State Park. This early season invitational will showcase many of the North Shore teams as they compete for the Classic Handcrafted Awards. If you took a speed boat from Cape Ann to Cape Cod you could catch the Martha's Vineyard Invitational. Another perfect setting for this early season summer atmosphere event. It should be a great weekend of action and Milespitmass will cover as much as possible.

  • Pre-Season Virtual Meet: Girls Eastern Division 4 Championships

    Marblehead High School captured this division rather easily in 2013, but they were hit hard by graduation, leaving this division up for grabs this year. Holliston and Milton are leading our virtual meet totals, but look for this to be a close race for the team title in November.

  • Boston Hoping To Draw Top Runners To City

    With perfect form and ponytails, Jen Rhines and Morgan Uceny ran effortlessly down a dirt path along the Charles River last week, passing morning rush-hour traffic, bike commuters, and joggers. Along the way, they prompted double takes. Olympians in action tend to do that, especially in a city with as rich a running history as Boston.

  • Pre-Season Virtual Meet: Boys Eastern Division 4 Championships

      Pembroke Again ? Although the State Champions lost the Top 7 from the 2013 squad, they have enough depth to stay on top in 2014. Even though many of the Titan  times came at the very fast Twilight meet, there is huge 45 point difference to the next closest team.  Our virtual meet is telling us they will not be challenged at the Division 4 Championships. Then again.....it's only Sept 1st, its only a virtual meet....and it really doesn't matter.
