Belmont X-Country Off To a Fast Season Start

The 2014 cross country season got off to a fast start for Belmont High School Girls’ and Boys’ teams as both swept by visiting Stoneham High at Belmont’s Clay Pit Pond course on Tuesday, Sept. 9.

In the Girls’ race, Belmont junior Leah Brams remained undefeated for her career on her home course – and in Middlesex League competition – cruising to an easy wire-to-wire win while leading her team to a 17-44 victory, speeding over the 5 kilometer (3.1 mile) distance in a whippet-fast 19 minutes and 33 seconds.

Placing second was junior Sophia Klimasmith (20:37) and third was fellow 11th grader Meredith Hughes (21:02). Carly Tymm (23:09 in 5th) and freshman Camilla Carere (23:19 in 6th) rounded out the scoring.

Over at the Boys’ race, Belmont senior Ari Silverfine broke 18 minutes with a 17:57 to take top spot over the course that takes runners around the pond several times and through several Belmont High School athletic fields.

Seniors Charlie Smith (18:21) and Seth Altman (18:30) ran to place and show while sophomore Wilder Manion (18:57) and Noan Miller-Medzon (19:07) took 5th and 6th as Belmont defeated the visiting Spartans 17-44.
