Boys' Cross-Country Triple Crown Three-peat!

Posted On: 11/14/2016 3:08 PM

The Knights captured their third "triple crown" victory in a row last Friday. The triple crown consists of the team's three post-season races, the TCIS, VCL, and VISAA championships. Troy Gustke, the current record-holder of the school's 5k record, led the team and the league to become the 2016 VISAA individual champion for Division II. And although the league is divided into two divisions based on school size, his time was also faster than the Division I top's runner, making him the fastest boy at any independent school in the state. 

He was backed up by teammates Ryan W., GuruBandaa K., Aaron K., Thomas H., Andrew V., James P., Patrick G., Nathan P., Jack W., Zach A., and Matthew M.. Ryan, G., and Aaron K. also made the all-state team by finishing in the top twenty.  Way to Go Knights!

Boys Cross Country Takes TCIS First Place!

Posted On: 11/7/2016 3:15 PM

Each runner’s season-best time is public knowledge because it’s put on the big cross country Milestat website, which means coaches are always analyzing the data to predict who’s going to win any particular race. Coach Pilola did this last Wednesday, and it showed Norfolk Academy would win TCIS by 7 points. So we went in knowing we had some work to do, and Norfolk Academy went in hungry to beat us, knowing that they had their best chance of doing so in five years.

And the entire race, it looked like like Norfolk Academy was going to pull it off. Up front, Troy G. battled it out with NA rival Petey D., who was closer to him than he’d ever been before. Behind that, the rest of Norfolk Academy’s top five runners were ahead of the rest of our top five runners for the entire race.

Until the last 400 meters, when the Knights proved beyond a shadow of a doubt which team wanted it more. One by one, the Knights *barely* surged by their Norfolk Academy rivals just before the finish line in one of the most exciting finishes in school history. Three of our top five only beat their competitors by a margin of less than two seconds. The other two beat theirs by a margin of less than 8 seconds. It was a really exciting day to be standing in view of the finish line.

In the end, PC defeated Norfolk Academy by one point, 40 to 41. Troy became the individual TCIS champion, backed up by Ryan W., GuruBandaa K., Aaron K., Thomas H., Andrew V., Patrick G., James P., Nathan P.s, and Jack W.

The JV team also performed well, taking second place overall with 45 points to Norfolk Academy’s 40. The JV race was led by Ryan H. and the rest of the scoring team: Suds L., Matthew M., Ian A., Nathan G., Trent D., and Joe R.

Milestat Ranks Boys Cross-Country #21

Posted On: 9/19/2016 2:38 PM

Milestat published their list of top 100 XC teams in Virginia today, and PC is #21.


That’s awesome on its own merit, but when you dig a little deeper, you see the magnitude of that achievement. The schools above us on that list are large public schools—some with more than 2,000 students. Even within VISAA, we are one of the smallest schools, yet we continue to achieve great things.
