1970 Cross Country Team
1970 Division III State Champions


The Stoneham High Cross Country and Track teams of 1970-1971 dominated the span of three athletic seasons like no team before or since.

Beginning in the fall under new coach Alain Rocher, the Cross Country team lost its first match at Wakefield, but in what mightíve proved to be an omen, Tom Hayes set a new course record.

Hayes would not lose a league race all year and in the process set a Stoneham or visitorís course record seven times.

In their second meet, Stoneham swept 1-2-3-4 with Alan Clark, Bob Viola, Tom Deyak and Jerry Stevenson following behind Hayes.

Hayes would go on to win the Middlesex League meet wand the Harriers wound up winning the Division III Title.
