WESTPORT, Conn. – Staples High’s Henry Wynne won the State Open cross country championship Sunday, becoming the first Wrecker to win the race in 25 years.

Wynne won in 15:49, finishing nine seconds ahead of Newtown’s Jake Feinstein. The last Staples runner to win the Open was Tom Sheeran in 1987 and 1988. The race was held at Wickham Park in Manchester. Wynne, who committed to run for the University of Virginia, has not lost a race this year.

Staples took fifth with 191 points and earned the right to compete as a team at Saturday’s New England Championships. Staples’ other runners who factored in the team scoring included Patrick Nolan (35th), Oliver Hickson 41st), Peter Elkin (105th) and Marcus Russi (110th). Sam Cohen and Brad Payne were the other members of the Staples team.

In the girls race, Staples freshman Hannah Debalsi finished 16th in 16:49. She also earned the right to compete in the New England championships.
