During the first snow of the season, the NHCC All Star Banquet was the culminating event for the 2022 NHCC season by taking place last night at The Carriage House in Bedford. NHCC founder and master of ceremonies Larry Martin was in fine form as he prepared 60 speeches for each of the athletes (10 per gender, per division) honored at the 21st edition of the banquet. Each honored athlete received a plaque and long sleeve, moisture wicking shirt. All-State recipients (top 10 in the entire state) also received a running figurine trophy. Other awards distributed included NH Runner of the Year to PCA’s Brianna Malone as well as Leb’s Birhanu Harriman and Gilford’s Patrick Gandini. NH Teams of the Year were Hanover Girls and Coe-Brown Boys while the Coaches of the Year were Hanover’s Eric Picconi and Trinity’s Josh Forkey. Their interviews as well as this year’s Season Highlight Video (thanks Davio!) can be found below!
Humongous thanks to Larry Martin and his family for once again making this event possible. And of course congratulations to all the athletes!
Given that this event wraps a bow on the 2021 season, we have also including LancerTiming’s History of New Hampshire Cross Country as well as the 2022 Annual Banquet Past Award Winners .
