While the majority of PA athletes and teams have shut down for the season, two teams from the Philadelphia Catholic League still have members participating in post-season meets. On Saturday, the boys of Cardinal O\'Hara were in New York City at Icahn Stadium, while the West Catholic girls were in Orlando Florida at the Golden South Invitational. O\'Hara was joined by LaSalle on Sunday at the Boys\' Eastern States meet at Iona Prep in New York.
The West Catholic girls team was in another thriller with Cardinal O\'Hara, with West Catholic dominating the sprints, and O\'Hara piling up points in the Mile and 3200. And after taking 40 years to win another Catholic League crown, Monsignor Bonner repeated, but it was by the narrowest of margins.
It\'s the age of LaSalle in boys cross country in the Philadelphia Catholic League... winning their 3rd consecutive title by 21 over Cardinal O\'Hara in a relatively small race is a solid margin. Senior Greg Thomas finally gets his XC championship. In the girls championship, Cardinal O\'Hara kept their hold on the title with a slightly better performance than in 2004, tallying just 24 points to win by 29 over Archbishop Prendergast, which started with the one point awarded to the league champ, Colleen Boland.
