Section 2 Championships – Friday, November 3rd
Saratoga Spa State Park

An exciting day was in store for BH-BL as the teams warmed up on a fairly warm and muggy day.  The BH Boys were first up after all the other boy’s divisions. There may have been an expected outcome but they left nothing to chance and went out fast and strong, and came out of the woods and down the finish line stretch filling 6 of the first 9 places.  Tyler came blazing in just under the elusive 15 minute mark for the fastest time of the day and the WIN! Aidan crossed about 13 seconds later in 2nd, Evan in 3rd, David 6th and Nick 7th.  Kevin was right there in 9th, with Michael 14th, Dante 19th, Logan 21st and Colin 41st. No other team came close to their 19 points, solidifying their WIN!

The BH Girls’ team waited patiently for their race, the last one of the day, and then hit the course with speed, determination and fearlessness.  Rory led nearly wire to wire to WIN the race! Next in was Emily in 6th and Kristin in 12th and then Monica in 21st, and Madi W and Maddy S crossing together in 23rd and 24th.  Jessica in 33rd, Zoe 36th, Lauren 43rd and Janna 44th all had tremendous races to pull together their team.  It was a close race with Mohonesen pushing hard but BH came out on top by 6 points for the WIN!

Both the BH Boys’ and BH Girls’ XC teams are going to the NYS XC Championships!
