While most of our schools took the weekend off from competition, a couple of our squads hopped on a ferry and Woods Hole and headed off to Martha’s Vineyard for the 16th annual Vineyard X-C Invitational.
Let’s just say the Ocean State had quite the showing at Saturday’s meet. In the five events that were held – a freshmen co-ed 4K and a pair of junior varsity and varsity races – RI athletes claimed four of the six individual titles with frequent participant Barrington earning the boys’ varsity team title.
For this week’s female recipient of the HOKA Athlete of the Week, we nominate Saint Raphael’s Rory Sullivan. The Saints’ senior dominated the girls’ varsity race at the Vineyard Invite where she broke the tape in 18:50.10, the fastest time in the state this season.
