"The Championship meet for the 2012 Cross Country league was held Monday in a perfect day for running at Cazenovia Park. Patrick Healy led the Queen of Heaven team with a 17th place finish out of 130 runners. Fellow sixth graders Andrew Hartnett and Patrick Henshaw also had strong showings. Eighth graders Diana Henshaw and Alex Hartnett finished out their cross country careers by running together for the entire race. Queen of Heaven school should be proud of the hard work and determination displayed by these five runners. Congratulations to all for another great season!"
