New Hope Wins District One 'A' Boys' XC Title

The New Hope boys’ cross country team captured the District One Class A title on Friday at Lehigh University. It is the second straight district title for the Lions. Last year, the Lions edged Jenkintown in a tiebreaker.

Junior Greg House led the Lions with a second place finish in a time of 16:57, and senior Danny Schlussel was third with a time of 17:04. Other members of the championship squad were senior Colin McClusick (17:36), senior Dylan Selbst (17:40), sophomore Jake Dupont (18:05), sophomore Josh House (18:37) and sophomore Bradley Neumann (18:54). For Dupont, it was his first time in the 18’s this season, a remarkable one-minute PR that helped lead the Lions to the district crown.

The boys' team will compete in the PIAA State meeting this weekend in Hershey. Last season the boys' squad finished 13th at states.
