In their first taste of competition in what serves as a warmup for the fall cross country season, Harvey runners put their best foot forward in the 22nd annual Katonah 5k Saturday, Sept. 9, sponsored by the Katonah Village Improvement Society.

Junior Felipe Torres of the boys varsity team placed No. 1 overall with a time of 19 minutes and 32 seconds. His teammate, ninth grader Aidan Garcia, was close behind in fourth place  (21:11). For the boys, senior Matt Rankin placed second (22:56) in the male age 13-19 category while sophomore Micah Berni finished third (23:48). On the girls side, junior Sophia Beldotti placed third (26:09) in the female 13-19 age group.

“We’re proud of the efforts of the team in this first small taste of competition for the season,” said Harvey assistant varsity coach Alison Nokes. The conditions were not ideal as participants had to compete on a late summer morning with high humidity on a course that featured many big hills. Coach Nokes said the high humidity made it tough on the runners. “The athletes were working very hard, but struggled to hit the times they have had on this course in past years,” Coach Nokes said.  She was most impressed by the effort the Harvey runners gave. “The enthusiasm and commitment from the current roster was obviously high on the streets of Katonah and hopefully a sign of what is to come for us this fall,” Coach Nokes said.

The varsity coed cross country team season will get underway for the reigning HVAL and New England champion squad at home Sept 20.
