HBA Finishes 1st and 2nd at Maui Cross Country Invitational

Cross Country Team

Members of our HBA boys and girls cross country teams traveled to Maui to participate in the Seabury Hall Invitational. The 5K event was run August 24 on the campus of Seabury Hall in Makawao, Maui.  

HBA took up twelve boys and twelve girls. The 24 runners were selected based on their training over the summer, their performance in early season practices, and a time trial.

There were no separate divisions for junior varsity and varsity, so all boys and girls ran in one race per gender. The event was part of the Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) regular season, but it also served as a preview of the states course. This year’s state championships will be held at Seabury Hall on Saturday, November 2.

Other non-Maui schools that participated were Punahou, Kamehameha-Kapalama, Kamehameha-Hawaii, Moanalua, Pearl City, McKinley, Kalani, and Hanalani.

For each gender, there were about 140 runners and 12 schools with enough runners to post team scores. Here are the results for our Eagles:
