Playing host to a full-scale cross country invitational is never an easy task. Winning that invitational is even more difficult, especially when one of the teams invited happens to be a favorite to compete for the state title.

The Shamrocks’ cross country team finished second behind such a team as they scored 46 points in the Catholic Central Invitational, hosted at Cass Benton Park last Saturday. Taking first our of the field of 13 teams was Pinckney, which collected 36 points for the win. Northville captured third place with 81 points while Brother Rice was fourth with 105 and Rochester Adams was fifth with 109.

Leading the way to capture the overall first place was Catholic Central’s own Ricky Galindo, who finished with a time of 16:12 on the cloudy, 68-degree day.

Galindo’s first place finish is the eighth time in the history of the race—which has been running since 1977—that a Detroit Catholic Central Shamrock was the overall winner.
