Amy Kelly and Steve Hallinan ran their final races at Belmont Plateau, each winning their third consecutive Philadelphia Catholic League title. Kelly led her St. Hubert\'s team to their 2nd straight team title, while LaSalle used perfect pack running to hold off a late-charging Cardinal O\'Hara squad to win by just a single point. LaSalle used the classic (but not necessarily easy to achieve) pack of placing five in the top 14 (6-8-9-11-14), led by Joe Fedorowicz in 6th in 16:46. LaSalle\'s win ended Cardinal O\'hara\'s streak of XC titles at three, and their remarkable run of nine XC, Indoor and Outdoor PCL titles at nine.
