Xavier Wins State Open Cross Country Title; Qualifies for New Englands

Xavier added to its Class L state boys cross country championship with the State Open title on Nov. 1 at Wickham Park.   The Falcons will now seek to defend its New England Championship title next weekend in New Hampshire.

It is the sixth time in SCC history that a school won both the class and state open titles in the same year.  Xavier has done it four times (2018, 2009, 1999 and 1995), while Fairfield Prep (1997) and Guilford (2004) had done it once.

The Falcons placed four runners in the top 14 to cruise to victory with 75 points, 46 better than runner-up Hall.    SCC teams Shelton (10th), Wilbur Cross (11th) and Amity Regional (14th) fared well.  In all, nine runners from the SCC finished in the top 20 of the boys race.

Individually, Xavier junior Robbie Cozean finshed third (16:11), followed by teammate Peter Schulten (5th, 16:16), Fairfield Prep's Azaan Dawson (7th, 16:20).  Xavier's Dillon Selfors was ninth (16:27), while Wilbur Cross' Travis Martin was 10th (16:27) and Shelton's Robert Dillon (12th, 16:33).  Xavier's Will Curran was 14th (16:36), Cheshire's Brendan Mellitt (15th, 16:36) and Amity Regional's Connor Visnic (19th, 16:38) all qualfied for the the New England XC Championships, which will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10 at Derryfield Park in Manchester, New Hampshire.
