Fourteen schools sent their cross country teams to the Vineyard for the fifth annual Martha’s Vineyard Invitational on Saturday.
It was a beautiful, clear day, ideal for those who came to watch and cheer on their favorites, but no doubt it was warmer than the runners would have liked.
Eastern Athletic Conference champions Bishop Feehan ran off with the winning low scores in both the boys and girls varsity races as well as the junior varsity races.
Abigail Livingston of Barrington, R.I., finished first in the girls varsity 5K run at 19:45:57. Feehan followed at 2, 3, 6, and 11.
The Vineyard’s Hannah Moore (20:59:86) and Shivonne Schofield (21:00:52) finished well at 12th and 13th.
Michael Schroeder led the Vineyard boys to the finish line in 17:32:32. He was 17th overall. Kyle Joba-Woodruff and Cooper Chapman were the next Islanders to cross the finish line.
Bishop Feehan’s winning varsity crew filled the 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 slots. The Shamrock JVs were even more dominant finishing at 1,2,3,6, and 7, about as close to a sweep as any could get.
The Barnstable boys teams were second in both the varsity and junior varsity runs.
Thorpe Karabees led the way for the Vineyard in the boys jayvee race and finished fourth overall.
Carter D’Angelo was the first Vineyard jayvee girl to cross the finish line.
