MAHWAH, NJ - Rain may have made things a bit more messy than desired, but the Hasbrouck Heights JV cross country runners did not let it stop them from accomplishing their goals.

Winning their second JV meet in five days, the Hasbrouck Heights boys team captured the JV Boys Small School Division at the Doc Braver Invitational at Darlington Park.  On Saturday, Hasbrouck Heights won the JV Division of the Bergen County Group meet.  

“The JV team winning this meet in back-to-back years, as well as the JV county meet two years in a row shows the depth of this boys program,“ said head coach Mike Ryan. “This is great experience for them.

“We graduate four seniors on our varsity team, so a few of these JV kids will be called upon to fill those spots.  Getting the experience of winning two meets in five days is getting them hungry for next fall.”

The JV was led by James Stanton, who finished second overall, in defeating Westwood 41-79.  North Warren was third at 101. There were 16 teams, and 162 runners competing in the boys' division.

On the girls side, Hasbrouck Heights did not enter the girls' team competition, but had individual runners competing.  Roberta LaBarbera, finishing 41st, was the Lady Aviators highest finisher.
