Ludlow XC finishes strong

Senior “Power Couple” Deaven Theriault and Brian Crowley lead the girls and boys Ludlow Cross Country teams as the least point scorers.
Don’t worry, getting the least amount of points is what’s needed to win.
Theriault, team captain, says her goal this season is to break 20 minutes. She has been training all summer, sometimes running with her boyfriend, Crowley. He challenged her to push herself and run faster, and with a hard previous season, she was excited to return with a great comeback.
Crowley, who is the boys’ team captain, says his goal this year is to follow in his brother’s (Dan Crowley) footsteps and win Western Mass.
On the point of his brother, Crowley says, “Training isn’t the same without him. I kind of lack a running partner.”
But that isn’t stopping him from working hard and pushing himself to do better and achieve his goal.
Losing two top seven runners and team motivators (Dan Crowley and Jake LeBlanc), the team had to add two new members: sophomore Connor Frigon and senior Patrick Klosek. They will help to contribute to the team’s ultimate goal: make it to states.
Every year the cross country team makes a trip to an overnight meet. Last year, they went to North Carolina and only the top 14 could go. This year they went to Brown University in Rhode Island and the team was excited that everyone was able to go.
The boys finished with an impressive 9-2 record while the girls finished 7-4. At Western Mass, the girls team placed fifth overall, while boys placed fourth. For girls, senior Deaven Theraiult and junior Silwia Lipior qualified for states. For boys, senior Brian Crowley was the lone qualifier. States are this coming weekend in Northfield, Mass.

About the Contributor
Chloe Forrant, Staff Writer
When Chloe Forrant isn't spending 18 hours a week dancing or teaching dance, she is slaving over AP Government  work, worrying about how she is going to figure out how to do her math homework, or braiding someone's hair for them. Somehow she found some time to write articles for the Cub. Thanks to a family beach house in Truro, this girl basically grew up at the Cape. Yet, after seventeen long years of life she still doesn't know how to swim...? With everything going on, she still finds time to read sappy romantic novels and pretend shes Serena Van Der Woodsen. Chloe tells it like it is and neglects to hide anything from people. She is usually pretty hyper all the time but loves to sit in the car and go for long car rides going nowhere. This petite, blue eyed-blonde may not seem like the garage-alternative rock band type, but trust me, she bumps to Blink 182 and All Time Low in her beloved Scotty the Sonata . You can see her driving around Ludlow with her boyfriend in the passenger seat, windows rolled down and music blasting.  Don't worry though, her love of baseball and the Red Sox still add points to her all-American girl looks. She wishes to do well in journalism this year and hopes to go to Elms college and study to be an elementary school teacher next fall.
