Shrewsbury – The boys’ cross country team at Shrewsbury High School has been consistently good for a long time. As the end of the season approaches, a stellar 2014 foreshadows good things for the school’s runners in the upcoming district and state meets.
Coach Jim Smith has been coaching the team since 1991. He said that this year’s squad, led by junior Jackson Southard and senior Captain Tyler O’Keefe, is as good as any Shrewsbury team he has seen. Southard, who has been ranked as high as third in the state by cross country rankings websites, recently broke the Shrewsbury home course record by running 3.1 miles in 16 minutes, 23 seconds Oct. 10 against Saint John’s High School.
