On boys’ side, NA captured the first six spots in the race, sweeping Mars (15-49) and Shaler (15-50) in the process. Leading the black and gold was sophomore T. J. Robinson with a time of 17:01. Finishing next was Clark Smith, who was followed closely by a pack of NA runners – Joe Bojarski, Christian Parraguirre, Luke Turkovich, Max Micucci, and Ethan Sansosti.
The Tigers will take their momentum west this Saturday to compete against the best of Ohio in the annual Spartan Invitational (Boardman, OH).
