Story Lines Of The Season
•Former cross country power Xavier- Middletown hadn't won a Class LL or State Open title since 1999 — until this season. The Falcons, led by energetic first-year coach Dave Kraszewski, won the Class LL title and the State Open, and did so without a star.
•Junior Ian Albert, who had finished 82nd last year at the State Open, was ninth to lead the Falcons. Nick Lemon, John Corona, John Annelli and Scott Stewart rounded out the top five.
•John Raneri of New Fairfield won the State Open and New England titles; Christopher Bendtsen of Wolcott was the runner-up both times.
