WOODLAND PARK - Hasbrouck Heights continued its dominance over the North Jersey Interscholastic Conference Meadowlands cross-country scene, winning both the boys and girls titles Monday afternoon at Garret Mountain Reservation.  

"I'm extremely proud of both teams," said cross-country coach Mike Ryan. "We started training back in June and the attendance over the summer was unbelievable.  These kids worked so hard, and as the season went on, realized they could bring home league titles. "

Behind a league-best effort from Giana DiLascio,  Hasbrouck Heights captured the girl’s title by a score of 19-49 over Secaucus.  Saddle Brook came in third with 64 points with Immaculate Conception finishing fourth, with 113.    For the girls, its their third league title in a row and seventh in 10 years.  It is DiLascio's second straight league individual title.
