NYS Champs - Lipari Taking It All In Stride Nov 17, 2007

Stage 2 complete for FM By Christopher Hunt     WAPPINGERS FALLS — Emily Lipari sat on a wooden bench a few feet off from the finish line. She smiled a lot. Not because she won, well, maybe a little, but really because that’s just what the Roslyn sophomore does.     She said she doesn’t get herself pumped out before races. Lipari doesn’t get too excited afterward. She just smiles and lets her brother Tommy do the strategizing and worrying.     “He practically runs my race for me,” Lipari said. ‘’He tells me who’s in the race. He tells me where I’m supposed to be. He just maps everything out for me.’ FULL STORY HERE
