McQuaid Invitational/Pete Matzke Invitational

Oct. 1, 2017

The squad split up this weekend with the Varsity A team going to Rochester for the 53rd annual McQuaid Invitational and the rest of the Varsity and the Modified team travelling to Maine, NY for the Pete Matzke Invitational.    New York State's #12 ranked Class C Girls team, toed the line against some of New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania's best teams in the Small School Seeded race and fnished 10th of the 20 complete teams competing.  Shyanne Lawton once again led the team with an 35th place finish out of 203 finishers.  Katie Flynn followed closely in 38th and Sarah Knox was 52nd.  Lindsey Szalach, Zoe Nestoryak and Loretta Wachter all ran nearly 2 minutes faster than they had in 2016!  

The boys fared less well.  They finished 25th of 39 complete teams in the Unseeded Small School Boys Race.  Dylan Templeton ran 15 seconds faster than last year as our lead runner.  Rookie Allen Lawton was right behind him in the finish line chute becomming only the 17th Long Blue Line runner to break 18 minutes on this course (17:50).  Matt Conklin, Dante Hovancik and Zach Szigeti rounded out the scoring.  Dante ran 1:12 faster than last year and Zach lopped 2 full minutes off of his time from 2016.

Thomas Wachter was our fastest varsity runner at the Pete Mazke Invitational.  

Gavin Marsh led our Modified Boys effort followed 2 seconds later by Luckus McPeak.  Kathryn White was our highest placer on the day finishing 12th out of 57 finishers and running virtually the same time as our lead boys (11:05 for the 1.5 mile course).

Good job people!!
