Olivia Lantz has already more than proven herself an enormous running talent on the track, courtesy of a 4:57 best in the mile her sophomore year. Now it's time for the Manchester-Essex junior to show her versatility by adding cross country dominance to her resume.
"Last year I won this by pretty much kicking the last 800 meters and breaking them," Carleo said. "That's what I did this year and it worked out fine. "I think I'm ahead of of last year. My goal was to beat my (3 mile) course record by a little. It was 15:12 and I ran 14:59. I'm in way better shape than I thought. I'm happy where I am right now."
This weekend is one of our toughest weekend here on Milesplitmass because we have so much ground to cover. We have Mass teams down in Rhode Island for the very popular Ocean State Invitational. The tough and competitive Manchester Inivte is going on up in Derryfield Park in New Hampshire. The Titans of Pembroke travel to Wappinger Falls in NY as we get a first look at the defending Division 2 State Champions at the Bowdoin Classic. Finally at Wrentham, we have 4500 runners competiting in the Frank Kelley Invitational. And if that's not enough for you , Today we have the "Coast to Coast Battle" when Oregon , Wisconsin, Providence, and other NCAA heavy weights battle it out on historic Franklin Park.
“I tried to hold back for the first half of the race, and I felt fairly comfortable,” Abraham said. “I was hurting during the last half-mile, but then I found a little left in me in the last 400 meters or so.”
