Preview for Burnt Hills Invitational With Big Stakes

Girls DII

Teams:  North Shore (80 estimate), Schuylerville (76.2), Broadalbin-Perth (73.6), New Hartford (72.2), Greenville (68.4), Voorheesville (65.4)

Individuals:  Rachael Woodruff (Saranac) - 124, Tess Fitzmaurice (Greenville) - 121, Josie Smith (Emma Willard) - 107, Mariem Sayahi (Voorheesville) - 106, Stephanie James (Scotia-Glenville) - 105, Sunni LaBounty Schuylerville) - 104, Kaylee Lacreta (New Hartford) - 95, Skylar Dailey - 90, Sierra Fisher (South Burlington) - 90

Breakdown: Saranac's Rachael Woodruff was the top finisher in 2018 and Canton was the team champion. Woodruff will again be the favorite this year after a 4th place finish in the Section 7 Pre-States-2 race behind an imposing trio of Brooke Rauber, Lizzie Lucason, and Faith Demars, but she should receive a stiff challenge from Greenville's Tess Fitzmaurice who is unbeaten this season with wins at Queensbury, Galway, and Grout. The team competition should be close but is a little hard to gauge since the favored North Shore team has not run in an invitational this year.
