Marathon Invitational

Oct. 21, 2017

Nearly perfect weather and a dry, fast track awaited our Long Blue Line Harriers on Saturday at Appleby Elementary for the 27th Annual Marathon Invitational.  A mixed bag of results ensued.    The Modified Girls got things started with the very consistent 7th grader Kathryn White producing the best result.  She finished the 1.55 mile course in 11:09, good for 17th place in the 85 runner field.  She was the fifth 7th grader to cross the line in her race, which featured some of the best schools from Sections 3 and 4.

The Modified Boys were led by Gavin Marsh who finished with a time of 10:43.  Tyshawn Banks and Lucas McPeak also ran well, crossing the line in just over 11 minutes.

The Varsity Boys were next up with Dylan Templeton, Allen Lawton and Dante Hovancik shining the brightest on this day with Dylan  finishing in 22nd place of the 184 finishers.  Allen Lawton was 34th in 19:05 on this very difficult course on which to run fast.  Dante broke the 20 minute barrier for the second straight meet.  To do it at this venue is all the more impressive.  

The Ladies ran in the Seeded Race against some of the best teams in the state including several that were state ranked.  Unfortunately they were missing their number four runner and others struggled so the chance to move up in the state rankings passed them by.  Katie Flynn was our lead runner on the day but she was followed closely by Sarah Knox, who ran 21:55 on this tough course.  Loretta Wachter also ran very well on the day.

If recent history is any indicator, all of the harriers should run anywhere from 1/2 to 1 1/2 minutes faster for the same distance next weekend in the STAC Championships at Fortin Park in Oneonta.  Good luck ladies and gentlemen!
