The Amity boys cross country team opened its dual meet season Thursday with Southern Connecticut Conference victories over Guilford (22-38), Jonathan Law (15-50) and Sheehan (15-50.) The quad meet was run on Guilford ’s three mile Middle School course.
Shae Belenski won the race in 16 minutes, 58 seconds. Trailing him across the finish line by only one second was Guilford’s Tim Kenofick.
According to winning Coach Bob Orgovan, “After the first mile Shae led the rest of the way, generally by about 10 yards, but the Guilford kid came on strong at the end of the race.”
The Spartans’ other top runners were: Aaron Barkin (3rd—17:14), Connor Dunleavy (5th—17:33), Brian Mosher (6th—17:34), Michael Yuan (7th—17:34), Brian Dunleavy (8th—17:35), and Alex Hart (10th—17:57).
“I thought we ran well,” Orgovan said. “I know we ran better than we did in our previous race at the Windham Invitational.
We’re still third in the state. As usual we ran in a strong pack. It wasn’t an extremely fast pace but we did run better than the other 3 schools.”
Freshman Matt Arovas won the junior varsity race in 18:45.
“You will hear a lot about Matt in the next 4 years. It is really good to see a freshman win a jayvee race.”
