Lancer Harriers Put Forth Noteworthy Performances

Londonderry High School’s boys’ and girls’ cross-country contingents both had reasons to feel good about the performances they put forth on their home course and on one in Nashua last week.

Coach Matt Smith’s Lancer guys thumped several opponents in a four-team home meet Wednesday, Sept. 16, and then finished second at the Nashua South Invitational last weekend.

Coach Ed Burgess’ Lady Lancers also reigned supreme in their home meet Sept. 16, before having a more modest level of success at the Nashua South Invitational days later.


The Lancer guys tallied a score of 20 to easily defeat Exeter (52), Merrimack (72) and Salem (108) in the Sept. 16 home meet.

The hosts snagged eight of the top 10 individual places, thanks to the work of Cam Dickson (second, 17 minutes and 10 seconds), Jared Kane (third, 17:17), Noah Schrank (fourth, 17:23), Josh Wasserman (fifth, 17:29), Bailey Hamilton (sixth, 17:35), Chris Zaino (seventh, 17:59), Kevin Letalien (eighth, 18:02), and Nate Seeley (ninth, 18:07).

Last Saturday, Sept. 19, at the Nashua event, the Lancers finished second as a group behind Pinkerton, which tallied a team score of 30 to Londonderry’s 39. Nashua North was a distant third with a 114.

Dickson finished second overall (16:20), Schrank was fifth (16:26), Kane took seventh (16:36), Hamilton was 10th (16:49), Zaino was 19th (17:05), and Seeley finished 33rd.


The Lady Lancers won their home meet by tallying a team score of 25 to easily outdistance Exeter (57), Merrimack (65), and Salem (105).

Kalin Gregoire paced the LHS effort by finishing third overall (20:11), Madison McKivergan took fourth (20:33), Bella Ziolek was fifth (21:03), Courtney Guay was sixth (21:18), Alexandra Seeley came in seventh (21:25), Kaitlyn Marchant finished eighth overall (22:38), and Jillian Doris finished 10th (23:10).

At the Nashua Invitational, the Lady Lancers  ended up finishing a decent sixth overall. The locals’ effort was paced by 10th grader Gregoire in ninth place (19:58), McKivergan in 21st, Ziolek in the 34th spot, Seeley in 37th place, and Guay in 45th place.
