On Saturday, Oct. 26, the Brother Rice cross country team won the IHSA regional championship. Brother Rice beat TF North 28-37. This is the team’s ninth regional championship and the second year in a row that they won the title.

Junior Eddie Burke came in first place, and the elite senior athlete Jimmy Maguire took second. “The meet was a rough one, where we all had to dig in deep and run ugly,” said Jimmy Maguire.

Other runners in this event were Alex Macfarlane, who placed 6th, Charlie Walsh, who placed 8th, Harrison Morg, who placed 11th, Sean Sullivan, who placed 12th, and Jordan Harris, who placed 17th. Senior Jordan Harris, a dual-sport athlete, started on the Brother Rice varsity soccer championship just the day before. “I was determined to help lead my team to victory, and gain vengeance after the devastating soccer loss the day before,” said Jordan Harris.

On Saturday, Nov. 2, the cross country team will travel to Thornridge High School for the IHSA sectional championship.
