Wright's string of 3 meet wins ends

October 11, 1992|By Bill Blewett | Bill Blewett,Contributing Writer

After a tedious analysis of the finish-line video, the victory string of the C. Milton Wright cross country team came to an end yesterday in the Harford Invitational Meet in Bel Air.

The Mustangs, who had won three straight invitational meets this season, finished second in the boys seeded race behind Quince Orchard of Montgomery County. But the Mustangs found consolation in defeat.

Wright's Brian Harris won the individual title, his fourth straight in invitational meets this season. And the Mustangs outpointed a host of tough teams from Maryland and Pennsylvania.

Quince Orchard won its fourth meet of the season with 66 points, and Wright finished second with 86. Two strong Pennsylvania teams, Chambersburg (93) and Dallastown (104), placed third and fourth, respectively. Old Mill (154) was fifth.

In the large-school varsity race, Severna Park was second among 12 teams behind the sixth-place finish of Jack Longley.

"This was really a top-notch field," said Archbishop Curley coach Gene Hoffman, whose team placed sixth, two places ahead of its Maryland Scholastic Association rival Calvert Hall. Perry Hall was seventh.
