BH / Albany / Shaker / Guilderland – Tuesday, September 29th
Saratoga Spa State Park  — HOME MEET

We were met with rain at our first of at least 5 races on our home course. Through rain, mud and many, many big puddles the teams all had very strong finishes.

Thank you so much to the many parents who helped at the finish line, scoring and out on the course. You were great!

Baldwinsville Invitational – Saturday, September 26th
Durgee Jr. High School,  Baldwinsville (near Syracuse)
Course Map

A cooler day, very dry course and super fast times abound!  In the JV race Evan staked out the lead, put some distance between himself and the next runner, and crossed the line in First Place! Well done Evan!  Coming behind him was Nick in 9th, Mike M in 16th, Bobby in 23rd and Dante 25th to achieve an excellent 3rd place team finish behind the host team and FM.

For the Varsity, temps further warmed and the pace was fast.  Kevin stuck close to the front, finishing in 7th, followed by Tyler, Aiden and Mike B in the top 20, Luke in 30th and Shawn in 44th.  The team ended up with an excellent 3rd place finish, out of 17 teams, behind FM and Ithaca and 2 points ahead of Baldwinsville.

Really great efforts out there everyone!

Fort Plain Invitational – Saturday, September 19th
H. Hoag Elementary School, Fort Plain

A new adventure for the boys brought home great success.  The freshman boys started off the day with 6 finishers in the top 8 spots for a team win! It was Aiden leading the pack in First Place, followed by Tyler, Evan and Nick rounding out the top 4 and Kevin and David in 7th and 8th.

The Varsity was up next with Kevin crossing in first with a commanding lead! He was followed by Mike B, Gavin, Luke and Shawn all in the top 10 and an overall team win!

In the JV race, we had a team of 5 and that’s all it took to bring home another First Place trophy!  There were a lot of other schools in the mix, and a large Guilderland team but at the end it was Mike M in 3rd, Ryan S in 4th, Logan in 5th, Josh in 8th and Jack T in 18th.  Tallying it all up, the final score was a 1 point win over Guilderland!

Guilderland Invitational – Saturday, September 5th
Tawasentha Park, Altamont — Directions

The first meet of the season for the girls’ and boys’ teams started off with a cool morning but WOW did it heat up!

The Frosh Girls went off first , coming in 2nd to the host team. Anna L led the BH team in 7th, followed by Janna, Maddie F, Lindsay and Carmela. as the top 5 BH finishers.

The Frosh Boys were up next, filling in 5 of the top 7 spots to come in FIRST PLACE!  Top 5 BH finishers were Evan, Aiden, Tyler, Nick and Dante.

In the JV Girls race it was Monica across the finish line in FIRST! Great win Monica! She was followed by Emily H (4), Maddie A (5), Abbie (15) and Nicole (16), with a bunch of red in between, for a team finish of 2nd.

The JV boys were running light-handed, with just 4 of them, but they all put in great personal efforts amongst a large group of runners.

When it was time for the large school races, things were really heating up.  For the Varsity Girls it was Emily D’s turn to cross the line in FIRST! She was followed in by Eva in 3rd and Kristin (9), Marina (11) and Lily (14).  Skylar and Mary were right there too, all part of a tight contest in which BH ended up winning over Guilderland by just 1 point! Congratulations girls!

For the boys, Kevin closed in on the lead, crossing in 2nd place. He was followed in by Michael B (7), Luke (10), Shawn(14) and Gavin (15), with Bobby and James putting in great runs.  This race too was too close to call with lots in the mix.  When the final numbers were tallied though, BH again came out in FIRST,  by just one point over Guilderland!

Congratulations to everyone on a great start to the season. This was a tough course and you sure showed that Spartan Pride!
