EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - There will be lots of anticipation and expectation for the East Brunswick Bears XC team this year as they hit the track at St. Dominic's tomorrow.

Last year the East Brunswick Boys Cross Country team had a respectable finish both in their division and at the GMC championships with both results placing them solidly in the top half of teams.  They capped off their season with an eighth place finish at sectionals and look ready to improve on all of those results this year.

The team graduated only three seniors and has a large group of returning runners including five new senior boys.  There is even bigger class of sophomores totaling seven runners that set the Shore Coaches Invitational record last year as freshmen.  The new talent is necessary in order to try to compete against the top talent in the GMC and Red Division.

Joining the team is Reyden Davies who last year was among the fastest freshman in the state.  While competing in spring track this past year he finished in 13th of 35 runners at sectionals and one of the top mile runners for East Brunswick.  As a sophomore Davies is set to become one of the top runners on the team.

The division includes Saint Joseph, South Brunswick and Old Bridge all of whom have been ranked inside the top 20 programs of the state.  Last year Old Bridge was ranked first in the whole state and won the Group 4 state title giving them a strong outlook for the 2016 season.  With all this competition in their division, the boys will be hard-pressed and well-trained to compete at the highest level.

This is Jeffery Sundberg’s fifth season as head coach of the boys’ team and he is enthusiastic about the potential and depth of this group after just a few weeks of practice.  “We are excited with the work ethic and upperclassmen leadership the team possesses.  We have some very talented teams within the GMC and the Section.  The boys know the competition they will face and are up for the challenge.”

The race season will begin September 10 with the boys traveling to Jersey City for the St. Dominic Invitational.  They will open their dual meets against Piscataway at home on September 16.
