Watson Wins Burnt Hills
Senall takes Spartan Waterfront
Sammy Watson took first place (17:49.19) in a field of 547 girls at the Burnt Hills Invitational (near Albany, NY). Watson’s pace of 5:50 per mile came close to the McQuaid pace of Amanda Vestri of Webster Schroeder at 5:41 (on maybe a flatter course?).
Watson along with teammate Bailey Pierce, who took 12th at 18:35.33, lead the Rush-Henrietta girls to a 6th place finish in the 72 team field.
Hilton FRESHMEN Maddy Mason ran a 19:04.05 for 29th place leading Hilton to an 8th place team finish.
For the boys, Erik Lacourt took 5th out of a field of 585 leading Brockport to a 4th place team finish out of 78 teams. Lacourt ran 15:44.33 for a 5:09.7 pace. Paul Suflita took 7th at 15:46.67 to lead Greece Arcadia to a 7th place team finish. And the McQuaid boys took 5th as a team with some great depth to the 5th man.
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.
