EAST MONTPELIER — They did more than shine on their home course, as the U-32 Raiders dominated the boys cross country meet at Saturday’s U-32 Invitational. They outscored runner up St. Johnsbury 22-59, with third-place Middlebury 100 points behind SJA.

“U-32 was untouchable,” St. J Hilltoppers coach Chip Langmaid said. “It was their best race this year – maybe their best ever.” Indeed, seven of the top 11 finishers raided the finish line for the Raiders, led by Andrew Crompton’s winning time of 16:28.10. Hilltoppers freshman Evan Thornton-Sherman turned in a third-place time of 16:53.20. “Evan got out well and made a little run at Crompton,” Langmaid said. “Then about halfway through, Crompton gained some separation.”
