Seabury Hall Makes History with Double Victory at MIL Cross Country Championships

Seabury Hall made history at the Central Pacific Bank/MIL cross country championships on Saturday, as both their boys and girls teams claimed overall titles for the first time in the same season. The dominant force in the Maui Interscholastic League cross country ranks, Seabury Hall has previously won several state team crowns, but the dual victory at the MIL championships marked a new milestone for the Spartans.

In the boys race, Seabury Hall demonstrated their dominance, totaling 24 points to secure both the overall and Division II (D-II) crowns. They finished with an impressive 1-2-3-5-15 ranking, with individual champion Micah Brighton leading the pack. Brighton, a junior, defended his MIL title by completing the 5,000-meter course in 16 minutes, 55.3 seconds, finishing 12.6 seconds ahead of his teammate Kayden Volner.

The Seabury Hall girls were equally impressive, finishing 1-2-3-9-23 behind freshman champion Kailana Hagan and third-place finisher Bella Grossman. The girls team also claimed the overall and D-II titles with 35 points.

While Seabury Hall’s success is not a new phenomenon, with numerous state champion individuals and college runners coming from their program, this year’s victory holds a special significance. Layne Millen, the only senior on the boys or girls teams, had missed out on the MIL and state championships last year due to a stress fracture. This year, however, Millen successfully competed and expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to be part of the team’s success, especially in her senior year.

The Seabury Hall athletes acknowledged the collective effort and teamwork that contributed to their victory. Brighton praised his teammates’ improvement and the motivation they provided, while Hagan recognized Millen’s role as a leader and mentor, expressing sadness that this will be Millen’s last year competing with the team.

The MIL cross country championships also witnessed a significant achievement for Lahainaluna High School. Jaden Jones, a senior at Lahainaluna, finished 35th in the boys race, securing a state berth for his school. This marked their first state qualification since a fire devastated the town near the school.

With these notable victories and milestones, Seabury Hall and Lahainaluna have added their names to the rich history of cross country in the Maui Interscholastic League.
