Thanks Susan! I was hoping to be at homecoming tonight but my son plays football for Roxbury Latin and RL will visit St. Marks tomorrow (right next to the infamous field!) and we are getting ready for a RL post game get together here in Southborough. I think the posting of the scores is great!

I was there tonight, ended up not being Homecoming, that’s later, now Nov 5th.

Really? Sorry about that. I got the info from http://www.highschoolsports.net, which has all the sports schedules, so I thought it was reliable. Drat.

No worries, I had thought so as well based on that…

Chris, your work is really superb–i do find myself mesmerized by it! In the above shot you really have provided what it felt like to be there at that very moment.

thanks for posting the scores, does anyone know how they tally up the scores in XC? just curious.

The basic rules for a dual meet are:

Low score wins.
Each runner scores points according to their finish order (3rd place = 3pts…).
The first five runners score points for each team.
Runners 6 and 7 don’t count for their team’s points, but can “displace” the other team. Runners 8 and above for each team don’t score or displace.
A shutout is 15-50 (Team A gets 1-2-3-4-5, Team B gets 8-9-10-11-12).
