2013 Varsity Cross Country

It took until the last event of the season to discover the true face of Browning’s varsity cross country team, version 2013. Honored and galvanized by the presence of headmaster Steve Clement, Athletic Director West, Director of Physical Education Director Patricia Zeuner, Dr. Miguel Gama-Sosa and his son, Michele Gama-Sosa ’11 (currently running cross country at Yale), our Harriers took an unexpected third place at the NYCAL Cross Country Championships at Van Cortland Park. Christopher Keyko ’15, the team’s best runner this season, was at his finest, finishing fourth in a competitive field. His comrades finished further back in the race, but all embodied the best of what Browning brings to our athletic contests: sportsmanship, engagement and, as always, “grytte.”
These past two years we had excellent individual results but not really a team. This season, thanks to the hard work and dedication of Christopher Keyko ’15, Michael O'Connor ’16, Brandon Keno ’16, Diego Lopez-Liranzo ‘15, Yvan Maslennikov '16, Peter Florescu ’15, Philippe Laffont ’16, Julian Orillac ’16, Andrew Bendo ‘16, Terrell Edwards’17 and Alex Lopez-Velasco’ 17, a cohesive team has been born.
