HOLMDEL, NJ - Senior Alec Gironda closed out his Chatham High cross-country career by placing 43rd at the Meet of Champions on Saturday with a time of 16:40 over the 5K Holmdel Park course.

"Alec had one of the best season's as an individual in recent Chatham history," Chatham coach Patrick Barry said.  "He has been named as a first-team All-County and All-Conference performer for his efforts. He also helped his team to a second-place finish in Morris County and helped his team qualify for the Group 3 Championship race.  His leadership will be missed next year."
