Top Ten Moments of 2018 - Numbers 8 & 7 Jul 5, 2018

These may not be the fastest times or best performances, but they were moments that were aided by the stories behind them, the rivalries established, and the accomplishments achieved.

XC Girls Team Spotlight: Burnt Hills-Balston Lake Kyle Brazeil Aug 7, 2012

It may seem like to some that Spring Track just ended.  In some respects, with the Olympics, it still hasn't.  But cross-country season is right upon us, and that means the national spotlight turns back to New York.  In a state where the girls teams have routinely dominated the National Championships, and with boys not doing too shabby either, it can be argued that New York is the best state in the nation for the sport of XC.  This year, MileSplit is dedicated to highlight those key performances.  For the first time, MileSplit National will be producing our own internal National Rankings for both team and individuals, to be released the week of August 20th for the preseason.  In the meantime, we'll be handling all the action here in New York.  Tomorrow, we'll be releasing our intensive girls season preview, where we break down all the big names and big matchups.  But just to whet your appetite, we took a trip upstate, to meet with one of the Top 5 girls teams in the state.

S2 Champs: Shen tops Shaker, Burnt Hills impressive win over Queensbury Nov 7, 2009

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Shenendehowa coach Mark Thompson made certain to use the words “soundly beaten” when he talked about where his team stood with three-quarters of a mile left in the Class AA race the Section 2 championships. But whether it was catching a glimpse of the finish line or the sight of sectional championship and berth to the state meet fading away, Shen summoned something in that final stretch.

S2 Champs: Queensbury and Saratoga both squeeze out wins Christopher Hunt Nov 7, 2009

NYS Boys XC: Pre-Season top 15 Tim Fulton Jul 9, 2009

New York State has it's own NXN Region, so the top two teams at the NXN Regional both qualify for the NXN Championships in Portland, Oregon. Here's a look at some of the top teams from last year and where they stack up right now in paper.

Bloody but unbowed, Saratoga Girls 4th at NXN Christopher Hunt Dec 6, 2008

PORTLAND, Ore. – It’s not uncommon for it to get rough at the start of an elite cross country race. Shoving happens. Elbows. Some tripping. But rarely does an entire team bite it the opening meters of a national race. Let alone, get up and finish fourth.

NXN-NY: Leader of the Pack: FM rolls at NY Regionals Christopher Hunt Nov 29, 2008

  WAPPINGERS FALLS—There aren’t many times you’ll see anything like this. It wasn’t some local county meet or some small schools where one team breaks away and wipes the floor with everyone. This was the national qualifier, the Nike Cross Nationals New York Regional and Fayetteville-Manilus had clogged the front of the field like they were leading some ridiculously fast training run.

NXN New York Preview Nov 26, 2008

Roecker joins fleet of NYers headed to Providence Christopher Hunt Nov 18, 2008

There is a myriad of things that go into choosing a college, and making life decisions that can clog a teenagers mind and sometimes start a early-life crisis. But sometimes, choosing a college is as simple as this: “I just felt really comfortable,” Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake senior Sam Roecker said.

Some of nation Christopher Hunt Oct 9, 2008

No one is saying that the Eastern States races at the Manhattan Invitational Saturday are the be-all, end-all of cross country races. But when you line up some of the best teams in the country, people expect sparks to fly.

Weekend Highlights: US#2 F-M Tops US#3 Burnt-Hills at McQuaid Scott Bush Sep 28, 2008

Highlights and Results from: NB Ocean State Inv. (RI), McDonald's XC Festival (VA), McQuaid Inv. (NY), Roy Griak Inv. (MN), Stanford Inv. (CA), Carlisle Inv. (PA), Jim Danner Inv. (OR), Culver Inv. (IN), Palatine Inv. (IL), LoboCat Inv. (CO), Albuquerque Academy Inv. (NM) & Midwest Meet of Champs. (OH) The best weekend yet.  That's an easy way to describe this weekend's national cross country action.  Most of the top teams in the land took part in an invitational, with some teams coming up very big.  US#5 York (IL) kicked off their season by winning the Palatine Invitational, one of the big highlights of the weekend thus far.

Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake: A Tight-Knit Team Achieving Great Things Scott Bush Sep 24, 2008

It's a tight-knit school, Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake High School.  The community is small, parents are involved in their kids student-athlete lives, and with a smaller student population compared to most of the other top teams in the country, this team is achieving more than many think they could.  Over the past few years few teams have dominated girls cross country like Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake. In the fall of 2007 the squad took another step forward, qualifying for Nike Team Nationals, with a fifth place finish overall at the national meet despite missing their number two runner. Many speculated that Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake would've placed second had they had their full line-up, as they finished 38 points behind runner-up Saugus (CA). Regardless, the team now looks forward, hoping to build upon their '07-'08 success with even more success.  While no one will admit it, the thought of winning the Nike Cross Nationals title has to be on their minds.  A talented trio up top with Sam Roecker, Molly Pezzulo and Meaghan Gregory gives this team a distinct advantage few others teams can match.  This is a season of hard work, challenging oneself to go above and beyond, and most of all having 40 girls coming together to strive towards the same goal.  It's something every team tries to do, but only so many actually accomplish it.  Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake will strive for greatness and how this journey ends will be something fans of the sport will watch all season long.
