Research pays off: Dominic Sclafani is the 2017 Sun Journal Boys' Cross Country Runner of the Year

...Sclafani delves deep into his preparation, using his love of numbers as the catalyst for getting ready for races. The expected mile splits are already ingrained in the senior’s head, but he also has learned to understand his body better.

“I’m a math guy, so I look at pacing a lot,” Sclafani said. “I’m not really a biology guy, but I do look up how going out fast will affect lactic acid buildup during a race, so I do typically try to start slower so it doesn’t happen too quickly.”

After a fourth-place finish at Cony’s hilly course, Sclafani followed that up with a fourth-place finish at the Northern regional meet at Belfast, the location for the Festival, regionals, states and New England’s.

A goal of Sclafani’s goiing into the season was to make it to the New England championship meet. ... -the-year/
