HOLDEN — Each fall, the cross-country teams from Wachusett Regional and St. John’s High wage a friendly battle at the Wachusett Invitational. This year was no different, with the Pioneers capturing the Class A title and Mountaineers senior standout Colin Bennie taking the individual championship in record-setting time. The margin of victory for St. John’s was small as it edged Wachusett, 37-39. The Pioneers had three runners in the top 10, including two of the top three. The Mountaineers placed three harriers in the top 10, also nailing down the eighth and 10th spots. St. John’s and Wachusett finished 1-2 last year.
Falmouth's Barnstable County Fairgrounds played host to the weekend's most unique and festive meet, as the Twilight Invite nearly doubled its participation from 2011 and saw some of the most spirited races we have seen all fall. The atmosphere was clearly different from anything we've seen this side of the Sagamore, as a carnival/ meet combination reigned supreme. Like cotton candy smeared on your cheeks, it was impossible to walk out of this fair without a smile on your face. While the 5K track is blazing fast, the efforts put up in all races were impressive.
It was a very big weekend for the Bay State harriers, as Coach "Z" recaps all the action in the Weekly Z-Cap.
