After a 308-day layoff, NMH boys cross country was back in action. NMH opened the season at Deerfield’s Brush Invitational. The Invite is an early-season scrimmage event, with no team scoring and races split between 9th/10th and 11th/12th/PG.

The Hogger Harriers put forth strong opening races all around. In the two mile 9th/10th race, Jacob Nevins ’23 and Joseph Bullock ’22 ran a smart race to take 1st and 2nd respectively. They were followed closely by Aaron Burstein ’23 and Isaac Roth ’23.

In the older boys’ 5k race, Alex Ehrenthal ’20 and Louis Salz ’20 also finished 1st and 2nd respectively. In doing so, Alex ran the fastest time ever for an NMH boy at Deerfield’s course and Louis earned a PR by nearly 40 seconds. The duo were followed by Tyler Unruh ’21 and Garret Weil ’20, both of whom also earned big time PRs.

Thanks to our managers Ira Elwin ’22 and Jimmy Choi ’21, as well as Johan Cruz ’20 and Brandon Yep ’21 for their help on the day.

NMH XC is back in action next week at home against Williston, Worcester and Suffield. Please come down to McLamore to watch us!

The Hogger Harriers started off the regular season with three dual meet wins against Worcester, Williston Northampton, and Suffield. Alex Ehrenthal '20 and Louis Salz '20 set the pace for the Hoggers, going 1-2 as they did last week. With a blazing opening 5:10 mile, Alex was clear ahead of the field from the start. All alone, he would go on to run the fourth fastest time on the NMH course history. He is now also the third fastest individual to ever run the course. Louis also entered the record books, coming in a top 100 time for the first time in his two year XC career.

The #1 runners from Suffield and Williston respectively came in next, followed by an NMH trio of Jacob Nevins '23, Joe Bullock '22, and Tyler Unruh '21. For Unruh, it was a 50 second home PR for his three-year career. Bullock meanwhile, lowered his home personal best by more than 2:30!

Battling right behind the trio was Garrett Weil '20. Garret is now in his fourth year running for NMH. Back in 2016, Garrett ran 25:59 in this meet. Three years later, Garrett ran more than six minutes faster!

Rounding out the top seven today was Isaac Roth '23, who worked with classmate Aaron Burstein '23 on the rolling and dangerous hills.

Thanks to Johan Cruz '20 and managers Ira Elwin '22 and Jimmy Choi '21, as well as everyone who came out to cheer. NMH is back in action next Saturday, with our home invitational. We'll be taking on top teams from our league and outside of it. Please come support our runners!

NMH hosted our 9th Annual Home Invitational. With the strong Keene High School, winners of last week's Amherst Invitational, the previous two NEPSTA Division I Champions in NMH and Andover, and talented squads from Loomis Chaffee and St Pauls, the competition was going to be high.

In the race up front, LC's Matt Farrell and NMH's Alex Ehrenthal '20 gradually separated from the pack after a blistering 4:55 opening mile. Matt would get the win on the today, setting a new NMH course record of 15:51, with Alex right behind him in 15:57. Matt and Alex are two of only three people (Richard Sturtevant '19) to ever break 16 minutes on our 11 year old course.

Next in for NMH on the day was Louis Salz '20. Louis battled through the day, and came away with an excellent 10th place finish.

Continuing his great debut season, Jacob Nevins '23 broke the 18 minute barrier, a fantastic time for a 9th grader.

Right behind Jacob was Joseph Bullock '22, who is having a breakout season. Joseph once again set a PR today with his strong run.

Rounding out the top five was veteran runner, Garrett Weil '20, and in 6th and 7th for NMH was Aaron Burstein '23 and Isaac Roth '23 respectively.

While we were down a couple of our top guys today, our harriers should be proud of their efforts. When the scores were tallied, NMH came in 4th place overall in a tight race.

Next weekend we have a break from our hills, and get to run the fast and largely flat course at Loomis Chaffee.

Thanks to everyone who came out, and everyone who helped us out today (David Reeder, Jennifer Sutton, Craig Hefner, and Molly Lai in particular)!!

The Loomis Quad match-up against the hosts, Hotchkiss, and Taft consistently serves as a good bellwether meet as boys' varsity cross country begins to get into the heart of their season. This year was no different, as the Hogger Harriers traveled down the road to Windsor, CT. With perfect racing weather (mid 50s), the race began in the late afternoon. Loomis’s course is famously fast, but the early pacing suggested we were in for an extraordinary day.

The gun went off at 4:30pm, and the runners were off on the slightly adjusted course that now made it truly a 5K. A week after battling on the NMH hills, Loomis Chaffee’s top runner and NMH’s Alex Ehrenthal ’20 were back at it again. Both runners have competed on the national level in both XC and track, and their experience showed on Saturday in a strong field. In the first 600 meters as they looped around the flat baseball field, they were joined by NMH’s Louis Salz ’20 and five other runners. However, as they made their way over the first bump of a hill, Alex and his LC counterpart had already separated from the field.

The first mile came at a blazing pace with the top two runners coming through between 4:46-4:48. Louis was less than 20 seconds behind the lead, running at PR pace himself. Meanwhile Jacob Nevins ’23 and Joe Bullock ’21 were working together in the main chase pack, around 14th-15th place.

As the runners wound their way through the open fields and over the most significant hill of the course at the halfway mark, the pack was still very fast all around. They disappeared into the back stretch of the course, but by the time they re-emerged there was shifting in the order. Our fifth runner Garrett Weil ’20 had moved up five places and Jacob and Joe had also gained ground on their competitors. As they came back up on the road with about 650m to go, Alex was gaining ground on his fierce competitor from Loomis up front. Down the grassy hill and with two turns left though, the LC front runner found another gear and crossed the line in 15:00. Alex came charging in for 2nd place at 15:07 (4:52 mile pace.) Alex’s incredible run was the fastest 5K by an NMH runner in at least 15 years.

Meanwhile, Louis was holding firm to his 3rd place and would come home in more than a 30 second PR. In doing so, Louis turned the tables on LC’s 2nd runner who beat him last week at NMH. Jacob and Joe had made their moves earlier, and were holding strong as they looked to the line. They too came across the finish in stunning PR fashion, lowering their PRs by 45 and 56 seconds respectively. More significantly for the outcome of the race, they had moved up about five positions, and crossed the line in 9th and 10th place overall. Closing out the scoring for NMH was Garrett Weil ’20, who also had made his move earlier in the race. Continuing the trend, Garrett also had a significant PR by 50 seconds, finishing in 17th place overall. Rounding out the varsity seven for NMH was Brandon Yep ’21 and Aaron Burstein ’23. For Aaron, it was more than a minute PR on the day.

When the scores were tallied, NMH went 2-1 on the day beating Hotchkiss and Taft, but falling to LC in very close fashion. Thanks to all those who came out to support the Hogger Harriers. NMH is back on the road next week against the perennially strong NEPSTA opponent, Exeter.

The boys' JV cross country team started the 2019 Fall season on an overcast and damp day at Deerfield Academy. The Brush Invitational is traditionally a non-scoring contest, with our 9th and 10th grade boys racing a 2 mile course and the 11th and 12th grade boys racing a full 5k. Circling the lower fields by the Deerfield River, our boys' got their feet wet scampering through the grass.

Twenty-three of our 26 boys raced, including 15 in the underclass race and 8 in the upperclass race. For our 9th and 10th grade boys, Daniyar Aliev '22 and Jacob Walker '22 each turned in strong performances to begin their NMH XC careers. In the later upperclassmen race, veteran Ryan Lee '20 (21:35) and newcomer Oscar Rigo '21 (22:20) ran strong and continue to lead our young squad early in the season.

The NMH boys' JV cross country team laced up for the first home race of the 2019 season on a sunny and warm Saturday afternoon! Hosting Williston Northampton School and Worcester Academy, 25 of 27 of our runners were healthy, and toed the line to rally on New England's toughest course. Aided by the relief of long dark shadows across the edge of the rolling hills and cool shade in the wooded section of the trail - our boys tested their internal sense of pacing, focusing on effort level across elevation changes - while remaining determined to finish strong.

Impressive efforts were given by Sophomores Daniyar Aliev '22 (21:23, 6:52 pace) and Alex Choi '22 (22:19, 7:10 pace). Veterans Ryan Lee '20 (22:44, 7:14 pace) and Winston Hofler '20 (24:14, 7:48 pace) continue to provide competitive leadership and increase their fitness for reliable future performances.

Home Details 5th Out of 7 Teams

Another beautiful Autumn Day for the NMH cross country program, as we held our annual NMH Invitational meet under gorgeous September skies. The warm temperatures hovered near 80 degrees as runners warmed up, while also trying to keep out of the sun before their late afternoon starts. After a large girls' race and a fast boys' varsity contest, the JV boys' took to the line ready to push ahead for their second home race in 7 days. With a large field totaling 121 runners, each school's top speedsters worked hard to gain favorable position across the first 200m toward the hills.

After pushing across the hills, ascending and descending in the woods, and returning back toward the cheering crowds at McLamore Field, only three runners (Keene, Andover, Andover) would break the 20 minute threshold. Andover's top 3 runners placed in the top 5, with Keene's top 3 in the top 8. As the varsity squad only raced its best 7, Brandon Yep '21 led the young NMH harriers on the course and was the first NMH runner to cross at 20:40. Daniyar Aliev '22 (21:11), Ryan Lee '20 (21:50), Michael Stanley '23 (22:08), Rocky Ji '23 (22:08) and Tomoki Narukawa '23 (22:15) were the first five NMH JV runners to cross the finish (17th, 25th, 34th, 35th and 38th Overall).

Next up, a Saturday trip to Loomis - Go Hoggers!

Loomis Chaffee School Away Details Loss 44 - 18

The boys' JV cross country squad travelled to Loomis Chaffee in Windsor, CT on Saturday for our first out of state race of the season. After racing at Deerfield and twice at home, our runners were very excited to make the trip to a flat, fast course on a beautiful October day. We couldn't ask for better weather and the joyful spirit of the team (despite some taking SAT's in the morning!) translated into awesome performances of fleet feet. The boys' were challenged with goal pace times approximately 15-20 seconds faster per mile as compared to their best season effort on our home course, and each of our runners responded. Performances of note included 10th grader Daniyar Aliev '22, who surprised everyone by ripping a 5:44 min first mile, and breaking the 19 min barrier to cross at 18:56! Michael Stanley '23 continues to make serious strides, dropping from 22:08 at NMH to his first sub-20 time of 19:56! 9th grader Gus Geremia '23 (20:53), 11th grader Oscar Rigo '21 (20:36) and Captain Kohaku Kanamori '20 (21:44) also had pushed their performance to a new level.

Next up - a challenging race at Phillips Exeter. Go Hoggers!
