AFS boys cross coun­try fin­ishes 10th in PAISAA

Times Chronicle & Public Spirit - - SPORTS - Staff re­ports

AFS wrapped up its 2018 cross coun­try sea­son at the Penn­syl­va­nia In­de­pen­dent Schools Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion (PAISAA) Cham­pi­onship meet on Satur­day at Bel­mont Plateau in Philadel­phia.

De­spite not hav­ing their best day, AFS man­aged to cap­ture 10th in the Boys’ Var­sity race, fin­ish­ing 3rd among all Friends’ School League (FSL) teams.

Hav­ing fin­ished mere points be­hind the likes of Haver­ford School, Epis­co­pal Academy, Hill School, and Mercers­burg (all schools that are twice as big as is AFS) is a real tes­ta­ment to how far the AFS pro­gram has come over the past three years and the de­gree to which the kids have “bought in” dur­ing that time pe­riod.

Only three schools man­aged to place their top five run­ners ahead of AFS’ top five: GFS, West­town, and Malvern.
