Pittsford Mendon’s Boys repeated their state championship scoring only 55 points to win Class B with an average time of 16:48.5 which was 25 seconds faster than 2nd place  Bayport-Bluepoint of Long Island  at 96 points 17:13.7.  (Mendon only beat Brighton at Section V Championships on average time by less than 13 seconds).  In merged results Mendon took 3rd behind Fayetteville-Manlius of the Syracuse area and Shenendehowa of the Albany area.  In their interchangeable-parts team - the only member who was in the same team slot from last week was Isaac Goodman who was their fastest again, with Griffen Hess and Henry Burton,  (who both beat Goodman at Counties), just seconds behind, then came Nathan Lawler and David Azzara who switched with Kevin Dooley and Evan Feigel from last week for the 4th & 5th scoring positions.  Congrats on a great job by the Mendon team and coaching staff lead by Chris Compson.

Dave Hennessey recognized by National Federation of High Schools for most XC victories

Written by Reggie Henderson on .

A cursory review of the NFHS’ online National High School Sports Record Book reveals that coach Dave Hennessey of Penfield (New York) High School holds the all-time national record for boys cross country victories.

However, what makes that even more impressive – doubly so – is the fact that he also holds the national record for girls cross country victories.

Pittsford Mendon and Brighton boys are ranked number 1 and 2 in the state for Class B and they took 1-2 in class B and merged results.

Everett Geiger of Caledonia-Mumford in Class DD took 1st place in merged results.  This year's crop of boys has had invitational winners coming from all over the top 13 boys in merged results with predictions impossible and results like shaking dice.

Alex Cooper 18:55.4 over Anna Kostarellis 18:57.4 in girls merged results.  Kostarellis has closed the gap between herself and Cooper nearly every weekend this season and this week it was only 2 seconds.

Class A girls team was very competitive and Webster Thomas won a squeaker over Penfield for girls Class A and merged results.  Thomas's getting 3 girls in the top 8 beat out Penfield having all 5 girls in the top 17.  Both pretty amazing. Meanwhile Rush-Henrietta swept top 2, and had the lowest average time of any team, but only managed to get 3rd.
