Yesterday afternoon, on a perfectly scripted fall day, the familiar sound of thundering feet returned to the S. T. Hsaio home course as the boys’ cross country team battled Portledge, Long Island Lutheran, Solomon Schechter, and Martin Luther in the first PSAA meet of the season.
The Bears cruised to a dominant victory on the 2.53-mile course, taking the top three spots behind great performances from Colin Scanlon (14:50), Forest Kaplan-Walbrecht (15:25), and Joe Barisic Cubillas (16:03). Scanlon led wire-to-wire and was untested in earning the first individual victory of his career. Tiger Wang (6th/16:25) and Anthony Zajac (7th/16:26) rounded out the scoring for the Bears who placed eight runners in the top 10.
