Cumberland Lincoln Edition Sports & Recreation @ NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018 BREEZE PHOTO BY ERIC BENEVIDES Cumberland native and La Salle Academy sophomore JACK MCLOUGHLIN earned First- Team All-State honors at Sunday after- noon's RIIL Championship by placing fourth in the boys' race in a time of 15:49.89. McLoughlin and the Rams will take part in the New England Championships on Saturday at Derryfield Park in Manchester, N.H. McLoughlin places fourth, CHS teams finish in top 10 at RIIL Championships Local runners fare well at state cross country meet By ERIC BENEVIDES Valley Breeze Sports Editor GLOCESTER – Of the 15 high schools who sent both boys' and girls cross country teams to Sunday afternoon's RIIL Championships at Ponaganset High, it was tough to find any- one fielding a younger group of runners than Cumberland. The boys' team sent a squad to the starting line that had two seniors and five underclassmen, four of whom never raced in the state's biggest meet of the season, and the girls' squad had just one junior and no seniors among its seven runners. And while the future looks bright for both teams, the present wasn't too bad on Sunday. Neither team placed in the top six nor earned a berth in Saturday's New England Championships at Derryfield Park in Manchester, N.H., but the boys finished ninth out of 16 teams with 267 points – a nice jump from their 15th-place effort from a season ago – and the girls took 10th place out of 19 schools with 304. Individally, the best local finish came from a Cumberland runner – from La Salle Academy. Sophomore Jack McLoughlin earned First-Team All-State honors by taking fourth place out of 147 runners in a time of 15:49.89, as he sat behind the three runners who jockeyed for the lead in the Cumberland High sophomore BAILEE BROWN earned a spot in Saturday's New England Championship by taking 24th place in the girls' race in a time of 20:13.74.
