Boys’ Varsity Cross Country: Asher Beck ’24
Asher won the Division 3 race at the 21st annual Somers Big Red Invitational on Sept. 10. His first-place finish helped Hackley capture third place as a team out of 16 full teams in their race. In addition, Asher's 16:52 time in the 5K was the fifth-fastest that day out of almost 500 runners in boys' varsity races. Furthermore, Asher displayed amazing sportsmanship as he cheered on the rest of his teammates, many of whom were running a 5K for the first time. Congratulations to Asher for winning the Somers Big Red Invitational!
