Together with Jack Salisbury of La Salle in RI, his teammate, Matt Bouthillette, is apparently coming to Georgetown too. He seems to be a better XC runner than Jack, as seem in the Northeast Regionals of the NXN race:
6. 228 La Salle Running Club (16:38.3 83:11.3 1:43.5) ============================================= 1 2 David Principe Jr. JR 15:52.3 2 4 Matthew Bouthillette SR 15:55.4 3 12 Jack Salisbury SR 16:17.6 4 102 Alex Campagna SR 17:30.2 5 108 Connor O'Marra JR 17:35.8 6 (124) Alex Martinez SR 17:44.1 7 (130) Benjamin Carlisle JR 17:46.2
While La Salle led the race through the first three finishers (way ahead), their 4th and 5th runners did not help. So La Salle is not in the NxN finals this week in Portland. But Matt qualified as an individual runner.
Hope they can get their teammate, David Principe, next year.
Division 2 relays: Cullen, Needham blaze to record
Joe Reardon Sunday, January 17, 2016
Margie Cullen was pushing hard over the final three laps of her leg of the distance medley, eyes transfixed forward and arms pumping, the form that has made her one of the top distance runners in the state.
The Needham senior only had a vague idea of how fast she was going, but didn’t have to wait long to find out at yesterday’s Division 2 Coaches Relays at the Reggie Lewis Center.
Cullen surged down the final straightaway to clinch a new all-division record of 12 minutes, 10.92 seconds, thanks to her mile leg in a very fast 4:57.8. Cullen, Sarah Armstrong, Nicole Stevens and Daniella Pascucci shattered the all-division record of 12:16.16 set last week by Lincoln-Sudbury, and it’s the fastest in the country.
“I could hear Sarah (Armstrong) and the loudspeaker,” Cullen said. “After running the 800 I was pretty tired, so I didn’t know how fast I was going.”
I am not a complete idiot. There are some parts missing.
