For a conference record 34th time overall and 12th consecutive year, CBA Cross Country won the Shore Conference Championship on Thursday afternoon at Ocean County Park.
The Colts won by a resounding 84 points over second place Freehold Township, putting all five of their scorers in the race's top-16.
Christian Brothers was led by senior Tim McInerney, who finished second in the race at 14:59. His time was good for eighth best all-time at Ocean County Park.
Junior Shaw Powell finished in a solid third place at 15:12, followed by a third Colt in the top-10, sophomore Tristan Amell in seventh.
"Tim and Shaw led us really well today," head coach Sean McCafferty said. "They went after a hard race and their first mile was under 4:30. Both hung tough and ran great races. Then with Luke Reid resting, we needed our younger guys to step up and they did a great job."
Junior Nolan Kus finished 13th, while junior Tim Cahill rounded out the CBA five in 16th. While non-scores, varsity runners Ben Santos and Tanner Crochet both finished in the top-30 in the 152 man race.
Impressively enough, the CBA JV team would have finished second overall if they had been entered into the varsity race, according to McCafferty.
The Colts will run in the New Jersey Catholic Championships on November 3rd, before the state championship on November 10th.
