Cheserek Wins Northeast Regionals With CR






US No. 1 ranked prep
runner Edward Cheserek took down two-time Olympian John Gregorek’s 34 year-old
Sunken Meadow’s CR of 15:32 with a time of 15:20 to win the Foot Locker
Northeast Regionals by 25 seconds over Peru (NY) senior Dan Lennon.

This was Cheserek’s 7th meet
record this season out of 7 attempts. Next up are the Foot Locker National XC
Championships at Balboa Park (CA) on Dec. 10. The course record there is 14:36
set by Ruben Reina in 1985.

 

As she had in the NY
Federation Championship, West Genesee (NY) sophomore Laura Luff led until late
in the race. In the home straight, Kennebunk (ME) senior Abbey Leonardi seized
the lead but was outkicked by PA’s Angel Piccirillo in 18:01 to Leonardi’s
18:05.

 

Peabody (MA) junior
Catarina Rocha, fresh of winning the MA D1 crown, placed third in 18:19.
Piccirillo will be making her second trip to the national championships while
4x ME state champion Leonardi will be making her third. Converted soccer player
Rocha will be making her second national finals in as many cross country
seasons.

 

In all, NE & NY
runners will fill half the available 20 slots for the national championships.
