BXC MAPLS 2022 recap

Isaac Greene ‘24 once again led for the Bucs and in fact led for the whole MPL conference on a slightly drizzly but warm fall day in Hightstown. He dueled with Hun rival Eric Scully but surged in the last mile to leave Scully behind and finish at 15:56 with a comfortable lead. Petr Panchenko ‘24 finished 2nd for Blair and 11th overall at 17:34, just two seconds behind Peddie’s #2 runner, and a personal record (PR) by a second. Andrew Zhang ‘26 was 3rd for Blair at 19:43, a PR by 13 seconds. Next came Weston Trish ‘25 at 19:21, another PR and this one by 41 seconds. Rounding out the top 5 for Blair was Haruki Ono ‘23 at 19:48. Completing our varsity seven were Andrew Hong ‘25 at 19:55 and Tony Ni ‘25 at 20:00. 

In the Futures race, Topher Antonelli ‘24 led the Bucs with a time of 20:20, a PR by 82 seconds. Mason Davson ‘26 at 21:39 and Shay Corrigan ‘26 ran the course at 24:04. The Blair Harriers ran well as the quantity of seven PRs listed above shows, and they have a lot to be proud of. 

The State championship looms ahead for us this coming Tuesday, followed by Peddie Day on November 5.
