22 SPORTS & RECREATION NOVEMBER 7-13, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION BREEZE PHOTO BY ERIC BENEVIDES St. Raphael Academy senior REILLY JOHNSTON, left, junior NASAVELL MEDEIROS, center, and sophomore DARIUS KIPYEGO are off to the races at the beginning of the boys' race at Sunday afternoon's RIIL Championships at Ponaganset High. Class C meet, which was won by Johnston in a time of 16:27.12. "Nas went out aggressively," added Magill. "He has the talent to do it, so he hung in there. The pace was a little bit too quick for him today, but he'll be back. He was 10th at the Class C meet last week; he had a tough race, but he came back here and got Second-Team All-State, and that's nothing to sneeze at. He's only a junior, so he'll have a chance to finish higher next year." In the team standings, the Saints, who placed 12th a season ago with 319 points, improved slightly by fin- ishing 11th out of 19 teams with 308 and also received a 32nd-place finish from sophomore Darius Kipyego, whose time was 17:14.43. "I'm pleased with 11th place," said Magill, who is assisted by Steven Bishop and Lisa Mongeau. "We were just a little off up front, but I'll take 11th. It's a step up from what we did last year, and it shows that we're going in the right direction." Next up for Mongeau, Medeiros, and Johnston is Saturday's 84th annu- al New England Championships at Derryfield Park in Manchester, N.H., and according to Magill, "I dont think St. Ray's has been represented at New Englands since 2001. It's exciting."
