MLWGS boys team are the 2023 VHSL Division 3 XC State Champions

Posted on

The Maggie Walker boys are your 2023 Division 3 Cross Country Champions! The boys combined for 56 points to easily outpace runner-up Monticello (101 pts.)

The team was led by individual All-State performances from sophomore Anthony Bastardi (9th 15:57) and junior Colston Wisotzki (11th 16:02)

But 5 other team members ran incredibly well also. The boys 45 point winning margin was the largest spread of any of the state races, and our team average of 16:14 was the fastest of any team in the state. The boys were, simply, dominant.

Anthony Bastardi  (’26-Richmond) 9th 15:57

Colston Wisotzki (’25-Richmond) 11th 16:02

Patrick Doherty, captain (’24-Chesterfield) 18th 16:16

Kavi Rajappa (’25-Henrico) 23rd 16:27

Rehaan Jain, captain (’24-Chesterfield) 24th 16:28

Leo Chenoweth (’25-Richmond) 39th 16:53

Oliver Frankel (’24-Richmond) 68th 17:28

Girls also performed very well, finishing 4th. The Lady Green Dragons were led by a top 20 finish from sophomore Evelyn Hayter (19th 19:12)

The teams are coached by Jim Holdren, Deborah Snagg, Ryan Webb, and Nick Tuck.

Congratulations to our runners and coaches for a fantastic season.
