If Saturday was any indication, the future looks bright for what is already a talented Westhampton Beach boys cross country team.

The freshmen Hurricanes won their 1.5-mile race at the Jim Smith Invitational at Sunken Meadow Park in Kings Park, finishing with 22 points, well ahead of schools such as Northport, Smithtown and Sachem North. Max Haynia won the race in 7:35.15, while eighth-grader Trevor Hayes placed fourth overall out of the 188-runner field in 7:54.68. James Buono rounded out the top three freshmen for Westhampton Beach by placing 17th in 8:28.54.

Earlier last week, Westhampton Beach defeated Amityville, 15-40, to win its first dual meet of the season on September 10 at Sunken Meadow. The Canes were back at Sunken Meadow this week. They ran against Shoreham/Wading River in a dual meet on Tuesday and will be at the Bob Pratt Invitational on Saturday.


The Westhampton Beach girls cross country team put itself in contention for a possible league title right out of the gates by defeating both Miller Place (27-28) and Shoreham/Wading River (20-30) in a tri-meet on September 10. Jackie Amato, Ashley Steedman, Grace Hayes, Sydnie Mason and Kate Ryan were top placewinners, respectively, for the Lady Hurricanes, who had a meet with Mount Sinai on Tuesday.
