At an invitational held by the Laconia High School cross-country team on Friday, Cam Daly of Inter-Lakes and Ryan LaFrance of Gilford proved to be too strong for the other runners and with two miles still to go it was a two man race. In end, it was Cam Daly running away with the win on a tough, muddy, technical, and wet course with a winning time of 18:55. On the girls' side, it was all Andrea Shinn from Newfound. Going through the first mile Andrea already had 30 seconds on the entire field. She would run solo for the win, edging second place by nearly 1 minute and 30 seconds, crossing the line in 26:05.

The 2013 Sant Bani soccer team had an impressive start to their season Saturday, outscoring the Holderness JVII team at home, 9-2. Led by senior co-captain Harrison Evans, the goals came in rapid succession and by the half, four Sant Bani players had contributed to the 7-0 lead. It took only 8 minutes before Evans put his team on the board, followed by unanswered goals from fellow seniors Javin de Mello-Folsom and Caio Thielen, with junior Mohamed Sapry scoring his first of the season just before the half.
With a sizeable lead to work with, Sant Bani coach Todd Schongalla was able to give some of his younger players significant minutes in the second half. "We're going to need those younger players to step up as the season wears on and they played well for us today," Schongalla said after the game. Holderness was not about to go home empty handed, matching Sant Bani goal-for-goal in the second half, scoring twice in the 11th and 23rd minute. Sant Bani junior Ander Treviño Aizpurua netted his second of the afternoon shortly thereafter, at which point the defense took over and held Holderness to just the two goals.
