PAXC Races to Two Wins at Choate

Andover runners traveled to Wallingford on a beautiful fall day to take on Choate and came away with two good wins against the Wild Boars.

In the combined race, Tam Gavenas ('25) led the pack and crossed the line first overall. Robert Budzinski ('26) and Luke Williamson ('25) came in next, four seconds apart. Arun Kapoor ('25) and captain Aidan Lin ('23) rounded out the scoring for Andover while a PRing Max Boesch-Powers ('24) and Vance Fabrizio ('24) were Andover's sixth and seventh runners, respectively. Andover Varsity wins, 16-43.

Continuing his brilliant racing, Sebastian Lemberger ('25) took the first JV position for Andover, followed several seconds later by an emerging Magnus Julin ('25). Avery Lin ('25), Constantine Krenteras ('24), and Sami Tokat ('26) finished within ten seconds of each other, trailed closely by Josh Lee ('24) in an excellent season debut. A big PR from Mario Calvo ('24) rounded up the top seven Andover JV runners while a huge race from David Song ('26) put him right outside the top seven. Also PRing for Andover were Henry Ty ('24), Michael Kawooya ('26), and Max Langhorst ('25). And running well for PAXC were Luke Piasecki ('24), Adrian Werner ('25), and Arjun Shah ('25). A big congratulations goes to captain Rohan Kapoor ('23) who made a hard-fought season debut while setting the tone for PAXC runners throughout the day. Andover JV wins, 15-50.

PAXC will host SPS and Austin Prep next weekend for Family Weekend in the only home race of the season.
