VES Cross Country Sweep Competition at Pacer’s Running DCXC Invite
The sun was shining as the boys rode up to D.C. for the Pacer’s Running DCXC Invitational at Kenilworth Park. Gripped with pre-race excitement, the VES cross country runners turned that into energy that allowed them to all experience victory on Saturday. Daniel O’Brien ’20 cruised to a time of 15:18 in his dominating win of the Senior Boys A Rac, finishing a full 10 seconds ahead of Yorktown’s Albert Velikonja. Daniel’s run was the fastest of the entire day, topping all other 14 races. Colin Walsh ‘22 sped through the race, coming in 8th place with a time of 17:23. Josh Buckley ’20 came in at #53, beating out 94 other runners with a time of 18:25. Row Sterne ’21 finished in 16:52, making both Daniel and Row around 50 seconds faster than their times last year! Go Bishops!
