Kyle Returns to Podium

    As we wrote of last week's race, it's a big deal to beat the coach if you run for New Milford High School.  Last week, Nate Beatty came up short when he tried.  This week, Pete Matthiessen took a crack at it.  Odds were against him. He was a little tired from a big performance at the conference championships, where he placed in two events, and this was a 4.5 mile race.  Usually, the more mature runners have an advantage as the race gets longer.  Add to that, Pete went out like a wild man, building a solid lead in the first mile and extending it in the second.

It looked like a perfect set-up for a big fade by the Kid and a spectacular comeback by the Old Coach.

It didn't quite work that way.  Indeed, Pete was "visited by Mr. Bear" as we used to say, and Abe set his jaw and bravely attempted a come-back, but Pete held on to win by just about a minute.  That's quite an elite group you've joined there, Pete, of NMHS runners who beat the Coach at Roxbury before they graduate.  And you did it with a year to spare.

   Among the women, Kyle Gancher continued her dramatic comeback from her ailments earlier this spring and beat both Middlebury cross country star Joan Murphy and last week's winner Peg Molina to take her first Roxbury since Race #1 of the season.  She was even faster then, about 20 seconds a mile faster, though on a shorter course.  Congratulations on the amazing recovery, and keep it up.

   After the race, a snapping turtle was seen lurking around the finish line.  Unfortunately, we had stopped all the watches, so we didn't get an official time.
