FRAMINGHAM – Over the weekend, Framingham High junior Sam Burgess won the Bay State Conference cross-country championship meet.
He crossed the finish line in 15:27.9 minutes.
“Sam has now extended his winning streak and has claimed the Bay State league championship. Winning one race is something that no runner should take for granted and as cliche as it is to say, Sam’s focus on the process is what has made him as successful as he has been. He still has a couple more races left this season, and I am already excited to watch him and his team compete a couple more times this postseason,” said Head Coach Ed Crowley to SOURCE.
The Flyers finished in “finished 4th place overall in the league championship. It was a fantastic day overall and we’re excited with the opportunity to compete at the Divisional meet in two weeks,” said Coach Crowley.
“We’re going to take a hard look at our final preparations and hopefully we can all have a great team run,” said Coach Crowley.
“The Senior leadership on this team has been fantastic. Shand Seiffert finished 15th overall this past weekend and looks to be a major contributor moving forward,” said Coach Crowley.
“Other seniors Arnav Singh, Ryan Gaglione, Jordan Book, and Jordan Spector are all excited for the opportunity that is ahead for all of them,” said Coach Crowley.
Singh finished 33nd overall in 17:41.1 minutes. He was the fourth Flyer across the finish line.
Framingham junior Andrew Hohenstein finished third for the Flyers and 32nd overall in 17:37.5 minutes.
Senior Spector finished 35th overall and fifth for the Flyers in 17:48.7 minutes.
