Post Shore Coaches Edition When the dust cleared on Saturday afternoon, it was clearer than ever that Joe Rosa had just done the historic and that twin brother Jim was also one of those once in forever athletes,What became less clear was the team scene on both the Boys and Girls sides as some "Oldies but Goodies" re- emerged and some teams that were not on the radar at the start of the season are now more than a blip.

Don Bosco tops Warwick at Wave Mania Christopher Hunt Sep 27, 2009

WARWICK – Everyone keeps saying that the season is still early. They say that their team is still trying to find out who they are or that they’re working through a heavy training period or even that these races don’t matter yet.  And that all sounds good until the best team in New Jersey and one of the best in New York take the starting line together. That’s when it doesn’t matter as much that it’s still September, suddenly teams have a measuring stick.

Rosa Twins Dash Through Belmont (PA), 'Bosco Sweeps Regis Invite (NY) Matt Shatkus Sep 20, 2009

PHILADELPHIA PA - The Rosa twins, sensational juniors from West Windsor-Plainsboro North had a spectacular Saturday going 1-2 on a notoriously tough course (Belmont Plateau).  Coming into the meet the course record was set by Joe Rosa last year running 15:33.1.  Joe crossed the finised line this year knocking another 14 seconds off the course record clocking 15:19.3.  Not surprising by no means was Joe's twin brother Jim Rosa finishing not far behind brother Joe for a fantastic 1-2 finish.  Jim finished in 15:38.0.  Along with the Rosa's, teammates Jon Saveri (6th 16:16.8), Casey Dalrymple (14th 16:54.2) and Pat O'Connell (40th 18:04.2) finished with a tallied score of 63 to top the Philadelphia native LaSalle College HS.

PORTLAND, Ore. – It’s not uncommon for it to get rough at the start of an elite cross country race. Shoving happens. Elbows. Some tripping. But rarely does an entire team bite it the opening meters of a national race. Let alone, get up and finish fourth.
