MILTON — On Tuesday, Sept. 18, the Monroe-Woodbury Girls and Boys Cross Country teams beat NFA in league meets to complete another step of their journey toward the OCIAA Division 1 Championship at the 3.1 mile course at the Hudson Valley Sports Dome in Milton.

Both teams have a 2-0 dual meet record. They must defeat Middletown and Kingston to secure the division championships.

In the boys’ race, Keith Allen led the race from start to finish, followed by Andrew Yi.

NFA’s Dylan Dellatore was in third place at the two-mile mark, but three M-W runners - Brian Whitfield, Tyler Andersen and Dan Hynes - chased him down in the last mile to sweep the first five scoring positions.

M-W Girls won their race 21-38 with Jessica Pidgeon and Rachel Hirschkind taking first and second.

The remaining M-W girls ran in groups to secure the points needed for a win.

On Long IslandThe M-W Boys Varsity and Junior Varsity teams competed in the Bob Pratt Invitational Meet on Long Island on Saturday, Sept. 22.

Both teams took second place in the large school races (38 schools); the Frosh team placed sixth.

The separation between the first and fifth varsity runners – often call compression – was 58 seconds and was a crucial factor in M-W beating some more highly ranked teams.
