States and Feds

The NY State XC Meet was held on Nov. 9 in Queensbury, NY. It was a bitter cold 36 degree day.
4 Liverpool runners got to compete.

They were Dan, Ben, Connor and Alex. 

It was all about the individuals, since their whole team didn't make it. They all ran great races. Alex came in 27th overall. They helped Section III take the win for being the #1 section in the state. As if there was any question!

This past Saturday was a balmy 62 degrees when we went to Poughkeepsie for the NY State Federation Meet. You all might be wondering what the difference is, between States and Feds. Well, States includes only Public Schools. Federations includes public AND private schools. And we all know, NY state has a lot of private schools, especially down near the city. They are all very competitive in XC. 

Feds is a very crazy, very fast race. With the best talent in the state. Individual and team. And for the first time in school history, Liverpool won a Federation title. In any sport. It was a very good day for Liverpool. 

Next up is the NXN Regional XC Meet on Nov. 30th. It's held at the same course as Federations. They need a top-2 finish to go to Oregon. They're seeded 2nd. Stay tuned!
