Hyde, St. John’s girls overcome O’Connell; Gonzaga boys run away with WCAC title

Gonzaga returns as Boy's Champions, and St. John's breaks O'Connell's 10 year hold on the Girl's Championship.
Gonzaga returns as Boy's Champions, and St. John's breaks O'Connell's 10 year hold on the Girl's Championship.

Cady Hyde made a statement at the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference cross-country championship last year when she seized the individual crown from the defending champion as a freshman. 

Despite the same individual result — another first-place finish — at Saturday's WCAC championship at Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, Hyde's statement was even more defiant after her St. John's team snapped O'Connell's 10-year reign as team champions. 

"We are not just any team," Hyde said. "We work hard. We deserve to be here. St. John's isn't necessarily known for their running, but I think everything is changing now, and people are going to be taking us more seriously. We're a team to fear now."
