(Newburyport) Two of the best, and I’m not just writing about the coaches, won easily at Maudslay State Park on a pleasant Wednesday afternoon in Cape Ann League cross country competition.
Don Hennigar’s undefeated Newburyport boys team (4-0) stayed that way capturing the first five spots. Steve Sawyer’s undefeated Hamilton-Wenham girls team (4-0) crossed the finish line in a six-member, first place blanket. Thanks to HW athletic secretary Dianne Bucco for identifying the girls in the picture for me.
HW stuck the Clipper boys with their only regular season loss in 2010.
Chris Suprin’s late race surge was enough to edge teammate Keith Conway for first place by a second – 16:01.
The HW girls finished in what looked like a normal workout mode with no effort made to lunge ahead late. The official gave the six HW girls the finishing cards and told them to sort out the order of finish among themselves.
