Brian Faraci '72 -
Mike Dugan '15 - 8:16.53
VCP - Only 3 days
after a one-of-a-kind snowstorm
postponed the Sectional Champs, a
one-of-a-kind performance was turned in
by Mike Dugan and his
Freshman teammates, who won the NYCHSAA
Archdiocesan championship over favorite
Xavier HS, behind the inspiring race
from Dugan. Mike won the 1.5 mile
race in a time of 8 minutes 16.5
seconds, breaking the 43 year-old school
record set by Hall of Famer
Brian Faraci '72, who also set
the record winning the Sectional champs
back in 1968. Mike's time is
only 4 seconds off the Archiocesan
record and only 6 seconds from the NY
State Catholic school record.
3rd place in the meet went to another
budding star as Joe Prunty '15
logged a time of 8:42 for 7th best in
Prep history, and Kyle Guzman's
8:58 clocking is good for 11th best
ever. With help from sold races by
Paul McGovern, Arthur Condor,
Eamon and Pat Coughlin, the
Rams put 7 kids in the top 20 to seal
the meet. The Frosh B team also
edged Xavier behind Mike Miano,
Stephen Clow, Jamie Brown, Greg Apostle
and Dave Vitiello.
Not to be outshone, Jonathan
Calvello took his place in the
Prep annals as he became only the 7th
sophomore to break the 14 minute barrier
over the 2.5 mile course. Jon led
the Varsity to 5th place at the

Wave Mania XC Run - Warwick, NY
The Prep's first-ever trip to Warwick's
Cross Country festival was a muddy success.
The Freshmen, led by 4th place finisher Mike
Dugan, took 4th in both Frosh races.
The Varsity placed 12th led by Sophomore Jon
Calvello, and the JV took 5th and 7th
highlighted by fine races from Seniors
Charlie Welsh and Jaime Guzman.
Soph Matt Kukowski (pictured, left)
lost his shoes in the muck at Warwick in
just the first 400 meters. No
matter, as he ran the race barefoot, and had
a great race.
Run by Christopher McDougall, a
book that tells the story of the Tarahumara
people of western Mexico, for whom
running--running great distances
barefoot--is a way of life for
young and old. The author follows
recent research that suggests barefoot
running is best for all runners based on the
idea that humans evolved to stand upright in
order to run great distances to catch prey.
That is, that as a species, we were all
"born to run":
Mon 9/18 -
Annual Jim Scott Challenge - FP
On the same
day that Mariano Rivera set a record
that may stand for decades, Freshman
Mike Dugan set a record that may
well still be standing when he's
long graduated. Mike shattered
the meet record for the mile by 13
seconds, winning a thriller in
4:54.9 to pace the Frosh to 2nd
place in the team score! Greg
Martin led the Varsity to a solid
10:45 average in the 2 mile run.
Lucas Keefer gets 2nd to lead the JV
to first in the JV mile.
