MAHWAH, NJ - The Hasbrouck Heights boys Cross Country team just picked up from where they left off a year ago, as the Aviators won the Season Opener Invitational at Darlington Park in Mahwah, NJ. 

The girls got off to a strong start, finishing third, with their top returning runner from a season ago, Shannon Artuso, coming back off an injury just a few weeks ago, running in the JV division.

The depth of the boys team once again led the way for the Aviators.   Nick Bua took third place overall in the varsity race, with Jake Porco coming in sixth.  Cole Sonzogni was 11th, while Joe Canavatchel finished just two seconds behind him in fourth. TK Kasper was 18th to round out the scorers.  Damian Summers (23rd) and TJ SIngh (42nd) were the other Hasbrouck Heights varsity runners.
