Tiger Cross Country aka which way to the pool aka pass the gravy aka the prophets of rage finished 2nd in the Catholic League District Championships, a mere 17 points behind Brother Martin. To see the Tigers run is to know the fear they strike in the hearts of their prey. Holy Cross placed three runners in the top 10, with Blake Baldassaro finishing 3rd, Cade Martin in 9th, and Adam Sequeira in 10th. Rounding out the scoring five were Trent Terminie and Dominic Lincoln. Next up for the Tigers is the Region 3-5A championships at City Park. The Tigers will continue to stalk their prey – tigers are, after all, apex predators, and they never fail to make their strike. Also, Cross Country Pictures are on Tuesday 11/1 – see Coach Sines for your paperwork. Go Tigers!

Tiger Cross Country aka which way to the pool aka pass the gravy aka the prophets of rage finished 2nd in the Catholic League District Championships yesterday, a mere 17 points behind Brother Martin. To see the Tigers run is to know the fear they strike in the hearts of their prey; yesterday, there was no doubt who were the predators at City Park, who was the hunter, and who was the hunted. Holy Cross placed three runners in the top 10, with Blake Baldassaro finishing 3rd, Cade Martin in 9th, and Adam Sequeira in 10th. Rounding out the scoring five were Trent Terminie and Dominic Lincoln. Next up for the Tigers is the Region 3-5A championships at City Park. Go Tigers!
