Bears Cross Country Power Past Bulldogs in Season Opener

Landon varsity cross country cruised to an easy victory
in its first  in-conference contest, a dual meet with Bullis. The Bears
put their top five runners across the finish line to post a minimum score of
15, with Henry Duncan ’12 at the front of the pack establishing a course
record on the Bulldogs’ newly-minted course. Captain Billy Kuhn, Mac
Hightower, Brian Liu
—all ’12—and Harrison Voslow ’11 rounded out

Landon’s top five; Josh Michael ’11 posted a seventh place finish, and
sophomore standout Sam Fox finished 11th.

 

In JV action, speedy newcomer Nick Jundanian ’15
led the Landon crew in the 14th position, followed closely by stalwart veteran Alex
Harvey ’11
and a cadre of freshmen racers that included Trevor
“Mono-Shoe” Maco, Stone “The Visionary” Dreyer,
TJ
Vongkovit,
and Deacon Brew. Returning runners Ryan Rose ’11

and Sam Lynch ’10, joined by Riley McTague ’10, looked sharp as
well; Sam Krauland ’15 turned in a solid time in his second career meet,
and Matt Wellington ’15, the indomitable Will Christner ’12, and Alec
Merski ’14
all ran with poise for Landon.

 

Provided that Mother Nature cooperates, the Bears will
head south on Saturday morning to Woodberry Forest for their first big weekend
meet of the 2011 season. Thanks to all parents and friends who gathered along
the course at Bullis to support the team.
