October 12, 2017For the first time since 2005, the Grosse Pointe North boys’ cross-country team can boast being division champions.
Last week, head coach Diane Montgomery and her Norsemen won the second Macomb Area Conference Red Division jamboree meet with a 7-0 record. In the two jamborees, the Norsemen are 13-1.
“We are still not back to full strength as a team and we were without Garrett Schreck once again, so it was good to get the 7-0 win,” Montgomery said.
Senior Mike Ciaravino won the meet with a time of 16:20 and he had plenty of help from juniors William Hofmann, Kuvin Satyadev and Ben Seagram, as well as senior Calvin Riley.
Hofmann was third with a time of 16:39 and Riley placed sixth at 17:14. Satyadev finished in the top 10, taking ninth with a time of 17:24 and Seagram was 20th with a time of 18:26.
The girls had a strong showing at the meet, finishing third at 5-2 and finishing 9-5 in the two meets.
Head coach Scott Cooper’s team was led by junior Sarah Michalik, who placed sixth with a time of 20:46.
Senior Kate Wozniak was 19th with a time of 22:02 and she was followed by freshmen Annaliese Thomas and Anna Lisa Lynch, who finished 20th and 22nd with times of 22:12 and 22:18.
Senior Jenna Miller was 27th with a time of 22:32 to help the Norsemen finish in the upper half of the division.
