PEARL RIVER – The girls’ chatter flew just above the boys’. Pearl River girls cross country coach Dan Doherty sat in the front and gazed out the window while the yellow school bus merged onto the Palisades Parkway. When the bus pulled into the parking lot, Doherty stepped off first. He stood a few feet from the bus on the edge of the park at Bear Mountain where they would win the Rockland County championship. He stopped before he entered the field and dug the toe of his sneakers in the dirt and waited. Doherty never called a meeting but one by one the girls crowded in front of him and waited for direction.
