The Milford cross country team entered Wednesday’s quad meet against Delmar, Lake Forest and Sussex Central having the boys’ team winning just one meet, while the girls had yet to tally a win. That all changed at Killens Pond, when both the boys and girls team swept the meet. This could not come at a better time as the postseason meet season is rapidly approaching, the Buccaneers look to be rounding into shape at just the right time. In large part it has been due to the seniors, but Milford also has underclassmen that are pitching in as well.
“This group of seniors are major factors to the success of the team as a group. We have three that are joining the military to serve their country. Angelo Castintino-Air Force, Alexandra Herber-Army and Hunter Mitchell-Coast Guard,” Skinner continued “Outside the seniors, Eric Perry and Nate Waydelis offer everyday leadership to the team.”
“The championship season should see great individual achievements with faster times across the team. Faith Mitchell continues to strive on the girls’ side while junior Brianna Thompson is quickly progressing to being one of our top runners. Eric Perry and Nate Waydelis continue to lead the boys, and we expect both to do very well during the championship season. Be on the lookout for eighth grade sensations Avery Richard (boys) and Sammy Hudson (girls). Both have quietly been dropping times and are consistent varsity runners.”
Also coming up is the annual Reindeer Stampede, which is the largest fund-raising event of the year. To sign up or be a sponsor, please visit MilfordXC.com.
