Avon boys sweep Eastern to finish undefeated; Avon girls improve to 6-0

Avon’s Sarah Lancaster finished sixth to help the Avon High girls cross country team remain undefeated (6-0) Wednesday with a win over Bristol Eastern.

AVON, Nov. 4, 2020 – Jack Martin won his second dual meet of the year by beating teammate Lucas Hester by 28 seconds and helping the Avon High boys cross country team shutout Bristol Eastern, 15-50 and finish the season with an undefeated dual meet record.

The Falcons (7-0) had the first 10 runners across the finish line, led by Martin, who won the race in 16:30.1 over the 3.1 mile course at Fisher Meadows. Hester was second in 16:58 with teammate Nick Alphonso (17:00), Mason Bussiere (17:03) and Rodrigo Portal (17:05) close behind.

It’s the first undefeated dual meet season for the Falcons since 2016 when they went 5-0.

The Avon High boys cross country team finished the season undefeated for the third time in five years. They were also unbeaten in 2015 and 2016.

Avon’s Marren Ek won her fourth dual meet of the season to lead the Avon High girls cross country team to a 26-32 win over Bristol Eastern. Avon improves to 6-0 and can finish the season undefeated if they can beat Southington at next week’s CCC Region B championship meet at Stanley Park in New Britain.

Ek won her third straight dual meet with a winning time of 20:07.8 at Fisher Meadows, five seconds ahead of Eastern’s Fiona Gallaher (20:12). Avon’s Gabrielle Richmond was fourth in 21:53 and the Falcons secured the win by five runners finishing from sixth through tenth place.

The season will conclude with the CCC Region B championship meet on Tuesday.
