The boys’ cross-country team at Belen Jesuit is a juggernaut, and it proved that again Thursday at Larry & Penny Thompson Park, where they placed the top seven runners and easily ran away with the district meet.
The Wolverines proved to be the team to beat in District 16-3A, as they took down Homestead, Hialeah-Miami Lakes, Doral, TERRA and Mater Academy.
Senior Fabian Tomas led the way for Belen by winning the meet in 3:12.1.
Teammate Ryan Rodriguez followed in 3:12.6, and Alexander Isaac rounded out the top three in 3:19.9
The Wolverines also showed talent on both ends of the age spectrum.
Three of their top seven runners are seniors, one is a junior, two are sophomores and in sixth place was Joshua Collins, who is in eighth grade, with a time of 3:27.4.
Miami Central took the top honors on the girls’ side, beating out Doral, Northwestern, Carol City, Mater and Homestead.
Destiny Johnson of Homestead ran into the No. 1 spot in 3:58.4. In the second spot was Lianna Farnesi of Doral in 4:02.4, and Megan Moussa from TERRA rounded out the top three in 4:09.1.
Coral Park finished second and Coral Gables ended up third, with Reagan, American and Miami Beach rounding out the top six.
Lourdes Brea of Lourdes won the meet in 3:57.2, teammate Lauren Garcia ran a 4:02.4 to place second, and Madison Fernandez followed closely in 4:02.7 to round out Lourdes’ clean sweep of the top three.
