On Monday, Oct. 26, three of Manhasset’s young star cross-country runners won county championships at Bethpage Park and a fourth runner was All-County.
The four athletes (two boys, two girls) are members of the varsity boys and varsity girls teams but are in the 9th and 10th grade so they are able to compete in the 9th and 10th grade county championship races. The freshman-sophomore boys and freshman-sophomore girls’ races had the top 150 runners from Nassau’s 60 public schools.
Manhasset’s Stephen Bourguet won the boy’s freshman race (exciting finish) and Mary Welsh won the girl’s race by 50 meters. Charlie Morris won the sophomore county’s by 50 meters and Claudia Steck finished fourth in the girl’s sophomore race. All athletes were All-County for their accomplishments.
