The senior broke his second course record in two weeks, winning the boys elite race at the Spiked Shoe Invitational and leading the No. 1 Falcons to the team title Saturday at Wyman Park. Forsyth ran the 5K in 16 minutes, 42 seconds to break the record by nearly 30 seconds against a field that included the Baltimore-area's top public and private school runners.

Forsyth, who also runs track, earned All-Metro first-team honors after finishing second at the Class 4A state championship meet last fall as the Falcons won their first cross country state title. He has a 4.15 weighted GPA and is considering such college programs as Purdue, Illinois, Virginia and Penn State.
