New York State Championship Results

The Eagles' XC action continued on Friday, Nov. 10 up somewhere near the north polar region (officially Norwood, NY) as Pat Wortner joined the Section 1 team in the Class C race. Pat's 17:20 time and 36th place finish helped pace the Section 1 team to a 5th place finish. Overall he was 233rd among the nearly 600 top state runners. The team was paced by Pawling's Colby Delbene who blistered the field with a 15:54 time to finish 1st in Class C and 6th overall in NY State. Section 1 champ Irvington also finished 5th in its battle with the Class C teams. Scarsdale's Julian Sheinbaum finished 5th overall in NYS with a 15:53 time.

In addition to Pat's great effort, the story of the day was Pleasantville's star Libby Lizare (and Dobbs 5k winner and adopted Eagle) who finished in an astounding 19:23 for 8th place to top all Section 1-C runners. Libby finished 89th among all the state runners. Bronxville and Section 1 finished second to Greenwich and Section 2 and their star runner Caitlin Lane who won the race with an 18:18 time. The 2nd place team finishes of Bronxville and Section 1 in Class C and the girls' Class A result were the section's top results on the day in all the classes. Suffern's Shelby Greany finished 4th overall behind Emily Lipari of Roslyn who ran a 17:31. Overall Section 1 was competitive in in every race it ran except Boys' Class D.

The only bad news from the meet was that due to Irvington's 5th place finish well behind 2nd place Tully from Section 3, a number of that section's teams got moved up in the state rankings bumping Dobbs back to #10 in the final results. Still darn good and it gives the Eagles more teams to pass next year. The good news for Pat is that 17 of the 35 runners who topped him are seniors, and the the 8th grader who beat him (Caitlin Lane's little brother) gets shipped to Class D next year.

Congrats to Pat and all the runners for an exciting day in the northlands. We now have something else to fete at the team dinner.
