Cross country VARSITY

September 16, 2006|By Jeff Seidel | Jeff Seidel,Special to The Sun

Two-time state champion Andrew Revelle of Atholton bounced back from a tough loss last week to score an impressive victory at yesterday's Harford County Invitational at Tollgate Park.

Revelle lost by just one second to Christopher Moen of Walter Johnson in last week's Howard County Invitational. Moen's late kick in the final 200 yards gave him the win, but Revelle turned around and won this race in 15 minutes, 26 seconds, easily beating Loyola's Greg Jubb (15:50) and Ryan Stasiowski (15:53).

"I wasn't upset at all last week," Revelle said. "I was actually happy because I thought I had a great race that day."

Revelle was covered with mud on this day as storms that hit early in the afternoon softened the grounds on the course and left puddles all around. Jubb and Stasiowski paced top-ranked Loyola's win in the team competition.

The Dons' 64 points easily beat out Urbana (98) as Loyola again used its strong depth to outdistance everyone, with four runners finishing in the top 20. Magruder took third while No. 9 Bel Air finished fourth.

Laura McCary from Magruder won the girls' race in 18:59. Howard's Elyse Borisko took second (19:05), beating out Brittany Furst (19:08) and Erika Stasakova (19:16) from John Carroll. But the team title went to No. 6 John Carroll as the Patriots placed four runners in the top 10.

John Carroll finished with 51 points, scoring a surprisingly easy victory over No. 3 C.M. Wright (84) and No. 4 Seton Keough (124).

Knights Invite

Matthew Centrowitz set a meet record while winning and helping No. 2 Broadneck to the team title on a rainy afternoon at Baybrook Park.

Centrowitz took first in 15:05, beating runner-up Rob Wetzel from Spalding by 38 seconds. The Bruins needed those points as they finished with 77 and edged No. 3 Spalding by two for the team title. No. 6 River Hill took third (85).

Katie Harman repeated as individual champion for River Hill, sparking the Hawks to the team championship on the girls' side. Her time of 18:53 was far ahead of second-place Liya Kasimova (19:41) from Severna Park and helped River Hill to an easy victory.

The Hawks had 66 points, beating No. 8 Broadneck (78), No. 2 Severna Park (88) and Leonardtown (88).
