Genaro Anzalone | Varsity XC | Senior | Morganville, N.J.
Anzalone emerged as CBA XC's senior leader down the stretch of the 2016 season. He was the Colts' top finisher- and fourth overall- at the Non-Public A State Championship race, propelling CBA to their 27th Non-Public A title. At the Nike Northeast Regional, Anzalone finished second on the Colts to help lead them to an overall win and a trip to the Nike National Championship. Anzalone was named to the all-Northeast Region first team after the event. At the Nationals in Portland, Oregon, he finished second on the team as the Lincroft boys finished a solid seventh overall.
"Genaro quietly did his work and has some good early season runs. But as all Academy XC runners should do, Genaro stepped up his game when we needed him the most. One of our leaders was sick and Genaro took over. His races at the Meet of Champions and the NXN Northeast will go down as some of the most clutch." - head coach Sean McCafferty
