NXN Girls Wrap: Dominate Runs for Manlius and Baxter Stephen Underwood Dec 2, 2012

The girls of Fayetteville-Manlius (N.Y.), known as Manlius XC here, came into Saturday’s Nike Cross Nationals girls’ championship race in Portland with six consecutive titles under their belt.  Yet, there were questions.  F-M had, at the Eastern States Championships in October, been beaten for the first time in any meet in six years (by Tatnall DE) – though F-M had been without its #1 Jillian Fanning.  Would they finally relinquish the NXN crown?  Who would beat them?

They are questions you’ve posed and heard regarding the Nike Cross Nationals girls’ team title every year since 2007.  Why?  Well, because until the answers change, what other questions are there to ask?  Can the Fayetteville-Manlius (Manlius, N.Y.) girls (known here as Manlius XC) win again?  And if not, who can beat them?

Penn Preview: Girls Kyle Brazeil Apr 24, 2012

To some, winning a Penn Relays Gold Watch is a goal just as, and even sometimes moreso important than winning a national championship.  Watches are awarded only to the overall American winners in Championship of America events at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, kicking off for the 118th time next Thursday at Franklin Field.  In some cases, most notably the sprints, it is harder to win a spot on the top of the medal stand than it is to win a national championship.  This fact is because of the international draw the relays bring to Philly; currently, there are 62 schools registered that are not from the United States, with Jamaica the most represented foreign country with 32 individual schools.  For some, winning a watch means beating the world. While the main events remain the short relays, specifically the 4x100m and 4x400m, the distance relays and open events are available on an invite basis.  And with the the high quality meet comes a high caliber field in each of the 4 invitational distance events.  We broke down the competition to help you see where the action may take place.

NBIN 4x800s - Rhodes burns rubber, Stotans surprise Geoffrey Decker Mar 11, 2012

Brooklyn's Boys & Girls High School was right at home in New York City tonight at the Washington Heights Armory. The Kangaroos, long known for their success in the sprint relays (they are defending champs in the 1600 meter relay), notched a new title on their belt with an exhilarating come-from-behind win in the 3200 meter relay.

Cardozo, which had the day’s fastest 4x400 relay, finished fourth in 11:51.16.

Lucky Number 15: Can F-M achieve perfection again? Christopher Hunt Nov 11, 2010

The more you look at the what could happen at New York State Championships Saturday in girls Class AA, the more you look at the rankings and the predictions, the more you look at how the race could play out on paper, it begs the question: Can Fayetteville-Manlius score a perfect 15 again?

New York teams take home field advantage at Manhattan Christopher Hunt Oct 13, 2010

The Eastern States Championship race at the Manhattan Invitational is meant to bring together some of the best teams in the country on a course considered a benchmark for evaluating distance runners. With that said, New York proved again to be one of the most competitive states in the US in cross country.

FM Girls: New Faces, Same Goal Christopher Hunt Sep 1, 2010

Every year, no matter what happens, Fayetteville-Manilus coach Bill Aris will never compare his current team to a past team. Every year is a brand new team, he’ll say. Even if all runners are the same.

FM boys bring experience to the line Christopher Hunt Sep 1, 2010

For a year the Fayetteville-Manilus boys team had to answer repeated questions about what they didn’t have, or who.  They had a season to run and everyone else could worry that they housed the best runner in the state who wasn’t healthy enough to race.

FM makes it 4 in a row at NXN; NY shows dominance Christopher Hunt Dec 5, 2009

PORTLAND, Ore. -- They said they wanted to make a statement. Fayetteville-Manilus were already three-time national champions. There wasn’t a person that followed the race that didn’t expect that they would win. They are, and have been, by far the best team in the country.  So really, what was there left to say? Boerne XC wins boys national title.

F-M takes boys and girls titles at NXN NY Regional Christopher Hunt Nov 28, 2009

WAPPINGERS FALLS – Fayetteville-Manilus keeps finding ways to show off how good they are. First, the girls squad became the first team to ever score at perfect 15 at the New York State championship two weeks ago. Then they coasted to a win Saturday at the NXN New York Regional Championships at Bowdoin Park, despite an ailing Courtney Chapman.

CBA bumps FM, Rosa claims course record Christopher Hunt Oct 10, 2009

NEW YORK – They were going to have to wait for a little while. It wasn’t the kind of race that anyone was going to eyeball from the finish and proclaim the winner.  So everyone waited, knowing that they had fought the good fight until Christian Brothers Academy was crowned winners of the first real cross country battle royal of the season.

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

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.

Stotan Three-Peat: FM Girls win NXN Dec 6, 2008

PORTLAND, Ore. – Normally we see a stoic Fayetteville-Manilus squad unfazed by success, already on to the next challenge. Not this time. This time they made room for tears and hugs. And more tears. It’s not that none of the other races mattered. It’s that each race was another step climbed; another step toward its third-straight national championship. It was another step toward an ever-evolving stage of excellence.

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.

Running at Sunken Meadow State Park, Alex Hatz of Fayetteville-Manlius held off Alex Leuchanka of Shenendehowa for the individual title as both runners dip under 16:00 on the wet and sloppy day, but Shen is too tough for FM, beats them 30-47. FM girls win big as expected, beating Saratoga 22-48 as Courtney Chapman led her FM team with a win over a very deep field.

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.

A Dynasty Continues to Grow: Fayetteville-Manlius Scott Bush Sep 11, 2008

Since Nike Team Nationals started in 2004, no school has had the success Fayetteville-Manlius (NY) has shown. Four seperate NTN meets, four seperate top three finishes (2 boys, 2 girls). This year, F-M's girls team is ranked U.S. #1 in the MileSplit National CC Rankings and looks to make a run at their third straight national championship. Why is this squad so successful? What's their magic? MileSplit national editor Scott Bush traveled out to New York to see for himself, and the results were surprising.

FM - NATIONAL CHAMPS Tim Fulton Dec 1, 2007

Fayetteville-Manlius WinsNational TitleBy Christopher Hunt      He said the answer was both simple and complex — the reason Manilus has become a historic team, unquestionably among the best ever. They bought it, coach Bill Aris said.     They made a choice. They made conscious effort to make  excellence a lifestyle.     “Normal has nothing to do with excellence,” Aris said. “Excellence is another approach all together. If you choose to approach your life in a fashion geared to achieve excellence then the question becomes, how high is up?”     Manilus continues to reach new limits. They dominated Nike Team Nationals today, winning their fourth straight national title with 83 points, placing three in the top 10 at 5-kilometer course in Portland, Ore.

Fayetteville-Manlius: FIve First Men Don Rich Dec 1, 2004

Fayetteville-Manlius is clearly the favorite in the boys' race heading into the the first Nike Team Nationals on December 4th. But they don't necessarily see themselves that way. And that, in essence, is one of the reasons they are the team they are (see Meet 'the new Stotans" - Oct 9).

They personify team. They run for each other. They race as one. You could even say that FM is a team of five first men.
