Belfast, Troy Howard set to host New England championships
Camden Hills girls state Class A title team to participat

BELFAST — Every five years, the top high school cross-country runners converge on the Pine Tree State to participate in the New England championships.

And for the first time in memory, schools from Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Maine will venture a bit further north — to the Midcoast, to be exact — for the high-profile event.

The 83rd annual New England Interscholastic Cross-Country Championships will be held on Saturday, Nov. 11 at Troy Howard Middle School in Belfast. The girls race will begin at 11:30 a.m., with the boys to follow at 12:30 p.m., with approximately 225 runners in each race.

Massachusetts does not compete at the New England level, thus, the other five New England states rotate hosting the event. ... ps/1702024

Maine standouts have high hopes at New England cross country championships in Belfast
Luke Laverdiere of Yarmouth and Sofie Matson of Falmouth have a chance to join a short list of regional cross country champions from Maine.

...Laverdiere is attempting to become the first Maine schoolboy to win the regional crown since Louis Luchini of Ellsworth in 1998. Luchini, who went on to run at Stanford University, is now a four-term member of Maine’s House of Representatives.

“I ran that same course earlier this year at Festival,” said Laverdiere, referring to his personal best of 15 minutes, 10.86 seconds over the 5-kilometer course in the Festival of Champions, where he won by more than half a minute over a field that included top schools from Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. “So I have experience on it.”

Five New England states – Massachusetts, with a later season, is the exception – can send their top six teams and top 25 individuals to the regional meet, which was first held in 1935. The girls’ race is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m., and the boys race is at 12:30 p.m. ... n-belfast/

Record falls at New England Cross Country Meet in Belfast

BELFAST — Two runners broke the girls’ course record Saturday during the New England Cross Country Championships at Troy A. Howard Middle School in Belfast.

Julia Robitaille of Manchester West High School of New Hampshire and Eleanor Lawler of South Kingstown in Rhode Island each surpassed the previous mark of 17:47; Robitaille won the race in 17:31.65, while Lawler ran 17:40.55 to snag second place.

In the boys’ race, Luke Laverdiere of Yarmouth was looking to to cap off his undefeated season with a win at New England’s, and after coming within three seconds of the Belfast course record during his win at the Festival of Champions, he knew he could give it a run.

However, Drew Thompson of Fairfield Prep in Connecticut stole the show and won with a time of 15:16, nine seconds slower than Josef Holt-Andrews’ record time of 15:07. ... n-belfast/
