UPDATE: Despite varsity runner Danny Reynolds suffering an injury, the boys team managed to win the Group IV State Championships and come in third place at the Meet of Champions.

They also won the South Jersey Sectional Meet at Delsea again this year.

The Kingsway boys’ cross country team won the Tri-County Conference Championship on Wednesday, Oct 24, and the Gloucester County Championship the previous Monday.

Kingsway won the varsity and junior varsity races at both meets

“Packing up at the beginning of a race, working together throughout, and believing in each other are the keys to our success,” Danny Reynolds, the individual winner of the Gloucester County Championships for the varsity boys, said.

None of Kingsway’s competitors were able to come within 30 points of their scores at either meet, according to the results posted on Milesplit NJ.  

Notable times include the aformentioned Danny Reynolds, with a time of 16 minutes 20 seconds at Gloucester, and Stone Carracio, who came in third place overall and first among Kingsway students at Tri-County with a time of 15 minutes 54 seconds.

“I just focused on what I had to do, and kept pounding away at the run.”, Carracio said.

Kingsway now hopes to win the upcoming Sectional meet on Nov. 3.

Christian Lynch said: “We had a very tough battle ahead of us against Cherokee, who we have a lot of respect for. We were  fully capable of winning it; and we did”.
