The 6-foot-1, 145-pound Sylvestre battled back from a stress

after finishing fourth in 15:02 at his home Gardner Municipal Golf
Course at the Division 1 Central Mass. championships. In the state meet,
Sylvestre, a captain, came in 17th (15:07). Sylvestre also garnered MVP
team honors in cross country as a sophomore and junior, and is a captain

during the winter season. As a freshman, he was a member of the cross
country team that made it to the states for the first time in 20 years.
He is the son of Patricia and Charles Sylvestre of Gardner.
