While facing the best in the nation, Will Shaughnessy placed 65th in a field of 363 in the boys in the 11-12 year old division. Out of 407 of strong runners – many of whom were in high school, Cameron Ashby finished 214th and Daniel Lyons finished 236th to help their team of Maine 13-14 year old boys finish 21st out of 37 teams. All three run faster times then in both the State and Region 1 (New England) meets! Congrats on a job well done!
