I know this post is about a week late... (sorry) I catch a flight the next morning for a business trip and by the time I made it home, I had time to pack and not much else. I am home now and finally catching up.
Both the boys and girls team ran at NYSPHAA X-C State Championships last Saturday down in Pawling. After the mid-week snow we received, I was a little nervous about the day. However, Mother Nature was smiling and it was a gorgeous late fall day - a perfect day for running!
The girls teams ran first - starting with Class AA. Our team was in the third race. We had a chance to watch some of the best girl runners in the nation during the AA/A races. I can't even fathom the speeds some of these girls are capable of.
I have found that I am not the best picture taker when I am really watching the race. So, no pictures of the girl. Added to that, the kids were not wearing their normal uniforms (they run in the color of their Section - maroon), which made it a little harder to spot them coming.
Our girls were able to take a fifth place finish amidst some pretty tough competition.
The boys ran in the early afternoon.
Despite some very strong performances, they took 9th place for Class B boys.
Alas! Winter draws nigh and another season has passed us by.
Congrats to both teams on an excellent season.
