XC Countdown 2022: #14 Bonny Eagle Boys

Maine MileSplit 2022 XC Team Countdown

With the calendar switching to August soon we wanted to switch gears from the track to the trails to get ready for the upcoming cross-country season. Athletes around the state are hitting the roads and trails building up a strong base in hopes of a successful cross-country in 2022, with the hopes of lifting the state championship as a team in November the ultimate goal. Our plan is to highlight who we think are the top 25 returning girls and boys xc teams over the next three weeks. Thanks to Cheverus XC/track coach Nick Denari for volunteering his time and efforts to put this countdown together.

Xavier Lemieux (346) had a big outdoor season this spring, look for him to make an impact this fall.

2022 Outlook: 

Bonny Eagle returns a team of underclassmen that will try to compete for a top spot in Class A in 2022. Their top 4 returning athletes are all very accomplished. Xavier Lemieux and Tyler Gilbert both had great seasons over 3200m, with Lemieux running a blazing 10:05 at the State Championships. Rowan McDonald was the Class A racewalk champion and Harrison Dunne was the fastest freshman in the state over 800m. The Scot's weakness is obvious, however: they have no clear 5th runner. All of their other returning runners two minutes or more behind Dunne. The question becomes "Can Bonny Eagle find a solid 5th runner?" If they can, they could compete for a top 3 position in Class A, or maybe even the title. This team will likely be even more dangerous in 2023, as they likely will not have any seniors as part of their top 7 this season.
