For a record 33rd time in conference history, the Christian Brothers Academy cross country team rules the Shore.
The Colts notched their 11th straight win at the Shore Conference Championship on Thursday afternoon at Ocean County Park. Their first-ever conference championship came in 1982, the first year that CBA was a member of the Shore Conference.
CBA notched a 1-2-3 finish in the scoring race, led by Brian Hill at 15:10, Luke Reid at 15:11 and Troy Hill at 15:19. Ryan Miele finished 10th and John Sheridan was 15th to round out the Colts top five. Their 31 points beat second place Freehold Township by a whopping 80 points and their average was 15:24.
The Shore victory came just over a week after Christian Brothers took the Monmouth County crown for an astonishing 49th time in program history.
At the Holmdel Park hosted race, Brian Hill won his first race outright of the season and was named MileSplit New Jersey's athlete of the week.
With championship wins at the county, conference and Eastern States already in their back pocket, the Colts now look ahead to the state Non-Public A Championship on November 11th at Holmdel Park.
