Boys Cross Country: Spartans Continue Winning Streak At Fitzgerald Trail against Cheshire and Shelton

For the fifth consecutive season, the Amity boys’ cross country team has won the Southern Connecticut Conferences’ Housatonic Division championship. The Spartans won Crown No. 5 last week when they raced past Cheshire (15-47) and Shelton (15-50) at the Fitzgerald Trail in Woodbridge.

Coach Bob Orgovan admitted that he was not really surprised to see his boys defeat Cheshire and Shelton but was surprised by the magnitude of the two wins.

He said, “Yes, I definitely was surprised we did so swell. This was our best race of the season. We only beat bot h teams by one point four weeks ago at the Windham Invitational. I honestly thought this race would be much closer than it turned out to be. Obviously we ran really well.”

Shae Belenske led the victorious Spartans as he completed the three mile course in 16 minutes, 11 seconds. Brian Dunleavy was next across the finish line with a time of 16:21. Following them were Anthony Barletta (16:30), Connor Dunleavy (16:31), and Michael Yuan (16:37). The Spartans end the dual meet portion of their schedule with an 8-1 record (4-0 in Housy races).

 Orgovan proudly pointed out that there was only a 26 second gap between his No. 1 and No. 5 finishers. He also revealed that the Rams’ top runner did not participate in the race but had no idea why he did not run. He also acknowledged that his boy s swept the top five slots.

“Shae has been our top runner all season and Michael Yuan has been No.5 but we have lots of switch in the three other slots. Everyone improved an equal amount, so no one stood out above the others in this race.”  Orgovan added.

Amity (currently ranked No. 4 in the current state poll) has now turned its attention to Thursday’s SCC Championship race, which will held at Hammonassett State Park in Madison, starting at 3:40 p.m. Orgovan tabbed Cheshire as the team to beat and felt that Fairfield Prep, Xavier, and his Spartans should all finish among the top four teams.

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.”

Amity hosts Branford, East Haven and Lyman Hall in another SCC quad race on Monday at 4 PM on its Fitzgerald Trail course in Woodbridge .
