Overview: A very diverse cast of front runners from nearly every part of the state, plus players from NJ and PA, headline the first Varsity race of the day. Scott Loforte finished just outside the Top Ten in the AA race at McQuaid, and leads the field on paper. The team battle is more wide-open, with only Queensbury ranking high enough to be in contention. There are a few out-of-state teams that didn't have enough data to predict, and could challenge for the win.
