The Holy Trinity cross country team got off to a fast start, winning both the boys and girls races in the Wickham Park Jamboree.
For the first time, the jamboree was not a preseason race.
The Holy Trinity girls team set the pace as it had four of the first five finishers.
“It is a nice way to start the season,” Holy Trinity head coach Doug Butler said.
“It’s a long way to November, but it was nice for the kids to run well.”
And run well they did as Julie Wollrath took the girls title, finishing in 18 minutes, 49 seconds. Teammate Shelby Smith placed second, while Samantha Folio was fourth and Maleia Storum fifth.
Titusville placed second behind Claire Castillo’s seventh-place finish.
The Brevard HEAT’s Emily Chapman placed third in the race, leading the HEAT to a third-place finish.
Teammate Sarah Deibner placed ninth.
In the boys race, Andrew Cacciatore finished in 16 minutes, 14 seconds to lead Holy Trinity to the boys title.
Teammate Trevor Kattenberg finished fourth, while Egan Kattenberg was seventh and Michael Wilson eighth.
“My front four ran really well,” Butler said.
“And No. 5 (Daniel Cronin, 17:51) ran a PR, so really everything we could have expected.”
Titusville’s Xavier Wilson placed second in 16:29, helping the Terriers finish second overall.
Rockledge was fourth, led by Christian Lake, who placed 10th.
Viera was fifth behind Sam Shaffer, who was ninth in the boys race.
