At the Greece Olympia Spartan Waterfront Invitational at Hamlin Beach the Penfield Boys continued their undefeated season lead by Tyler Senall at 16:18 for a 5:15 pace to win the field of 225 boys.  Next was Payton Gleason of Churchville-Chili at 16:20 and the Churchville-Chili “Kostarellis” that shined today was Peter Kostarellis taking 3rd at 16:49.

Penfield boys dominated the meet with 26 points in the field of 8 teams.  1. Senall, 4. Brad Farnham, 6. Jack Murphy, 8. Jacob Fredericks, 9. Conor Davis.
