On Saturday at States, two coaches whose teams have together won 26 state championships will have a showdown in Class C. Walt McLaughlin's East Aurora teams won 6 titles from 2005-2010, and his team stands in the way of Jim Mitchell's Bronxville's squad's attempt to equal longest streak of all time. The Broncos have 6 in a row, but will they get to 7th heaven?
Canton, NY - Well, it seems as if the weather is taunting us. While it has been 65 and pleasant all week, we can't say the same for Saturday. But that has never bothered New Yorkers, who will toe the line in an effort to bring home the state title. Some for the first time, some maybe for the last time. Either way, we'll be on the scene to give you all the action. And if you want to prepare, look no further than our previews below.
MileSplit HQ - Long title, simple premise. Last week, each of the sectional coordinators made the trip to Canton to get their first look at the track. Section 3's Dan Reid took the initiative to videotape the walkthrough. Albeit a little shaky due to the terrain, it provides a great look at where the best of the best will compete in November. Enjoy.
