For pure excitement in a team sport like cross country, it is hard to match the excitement of a team of pack runners. Juniors Drew Jack and Yuvan Wickramsinghe were joined by sophomores George Mundo and John Judge in a pack for the entire race at League Finals. Not only did their pack finish second as a team, but they battled each other down the stretch with Yuvan taking the team medal with the bigger finish.
Here is an interesting side note. At the end of summer workouts, Coach Mundo sat down with this writer and laid out his projections. These were pretty bold calls and, as usual, this writer doubted the Coach’s sanity. Sophomore George Mundo was brand new to the program and showed promise but his Dad was projecting a 16:45 at Lacy Park for George. Look at the picture on the left to get an idea of what his time was. Aside from George, Coach Mundo also projected 16:45 for Yuvan and John Judge. Pretty solid calls. We look forward to late August 2013 when the crystal ball will once again make an appearance.
