Medfield's Ian Robertson showed that he's fully recovered with the groin injury that put him on the sidelines last November. The senior was by himself at 2 miles (10:20) and held off a charging Christian Gentile of Melrose to capture the varsity race in a swift 16:22.1. Gentile led a train of finishers in 16:25.5 and Phil Parent of Pinkerton Academy was a step back in third with his 16:25.8. Robertson was primed and ready for a strong race on his favorite course, but was patient getting to the front. He surged shortly after passing the 2 mile in 10:20 and never gave up the lead.
Riley Gilmore was confident her knowledge of every turn, hill and bump of Franklin Park's 3.1-mile course would make the difference at yesterday's Catholic Memorial Invitational.
