On Saturday, November 13, 2021 the La Salle Academy cross-country team traveled to Van Cortlandt Park with the challenge of competing for the Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) City Championship. On the brisk morning, the seven Cardinals seemed up to the task of doing something that has not been done at La Salle since 1977!
Carlos T. ’22 would set the tone for the race, finishing 3rd overall and leading the team literally from the front of the pack! He was not alone, though, as Jordan P. ’23, Edgar A. ’23, and Landon C. ’24 would finish 4th, 5th and 6th respectively. The team scoring was rounded out by solid contributions from Julian Q. ’23, Samuel W. ’24 and Aydan S. ’23.
The Cardinals are showing improvement each and every season under 4th year head coach William Hackshaw. Assisted by fellow CHSAA veterans Ed Howard and Peter Williams, the Cardinals have made positive improvements which culminated in this year’s City Championship! Congratulations to all of our student-athletes and coaches!
