MileSplit HQ - In the fast paced world of High School XC, many times coaches and athletes can get caught up in the process. We decided to take the time, and digest what's happened so far in 2014. Enjoy our ramblings of the day.
Wappingers Falls, NY - The Section 1 Coaches and Officials meet gives most the last chance to take to the hills of what will stand as both the Federation Meet Course, as well as the home to Nike Cross Regionals for NY and Northeast. We were there to capture all the action.
Syracuse, NY - In case you missed it over the weekend, the Orange men of Syracuse took home the title at the Wisconson Adidas Invitational in New York style, packing the top 24 with their top-5. Known for their ability to channel NYS' finest into the collegiate ranks, also means we have the embarassing high school race photos to prove their prior residence. Enjoy the flash from the past, and good luck in the rest of the season!
Under some difficult wet and cool conditions, a few spots on the course were a bit tricky, but there were still a number of fast times and quality races.
Clarence, NY - The show must go on, rain or shine. Demonstrating the true nature of the sport, the athletes at the Clarence Fall Classic battled the elements, and proved who's top dog in Section 6.
Goddard Park, Rhode Island - Marco Pompilj of Collegiate, and Saint Anthony's of Long Island were out to make a statement in one of the last invitationals of the season. They both stamped their marks as post-season contenders. Plenty more happened out East, and MileSplit was there to capture every moment.
MileSplit HQ - On this rainy day, the last invites of the season are getting underway before championship season. We'll debut our championship season with live coverage of the Suburban Council Champs next weekend, but we'll be focusing on getting everything we can out of the invites in the present. Stay dry, and stay tuned all day.
