Christian Brothers Academy also showed its dominance at the Nike Northeast Regional this past weekend, repeating as champs with a team average of 16:24.6. Last year, the Colts finished fifth at the Nike Cross Nationals meet, but the nation's No. 1 team is sure to be the favorite this time around. On the individual side, Westfield's Tim Leahy surged to the head of the pack to win the race in a time of 16:08.9, making him one of seven New Jersey runners to qualify for next week's national race in Oregon.
