Colton Delcollo recorded the first major win of his XC career when he ran away from the field at the Cumberland County Championships on Friday on his home course in Upper Deerfield.
Delcollo ran 17:17 and finished 115 meters ahead of Millville sophomore Arjun Patel, who was 2nd in 17:42.
Delcollo led all seven Colt runners in the top 14. Senior Ethan Turner placed 3rd in 18:33, and junior Kaden Riley was 4th in 18:38. Senior Sean Henry [7th in 18:41] and sophomore Ben Cogit [10th in 19:38] rounded out Cumberland’s scoring group. They were backed up by soph Evan Turner [11th in 19:38] and freshman Joell Bryant [14th in 20:33].
Cumberland outscored Millville 24-36 to win its first title since 2019. The meet wasn’t held in 2020 and Millville won last year.
