Hart takes Meet of Champions cross-country title


POINT PLEASANT BOROUGH — Devin Hart placed first with a time of 15:35 at the Meet of Champions [MOC] at Holmdel Park in Holmdel on Saturday, Nov. 18.

It is the Point Boro junior’s Hart’s first MOC cross-country title. He finished eighth in the race a year ago.

This time Hr broke from the lead pack during the final mile and finished nine seconds ahead of senior Chris Romero of Vorhees who took second. 

“Records can be broken, but you can’t take away a title,” Hart said. “Through the whole season, this has been the end goal. It feels great to win this as a junior.”
