Eagles and Yellowjackets Renew Old Rivalry in Head to Head Matchup on Trails
Dobbs Ferry and Hastings square off at the Burke Estate on Tuesday, October 6 for the first time in years. The meet starts around 4:15.
The Eagle guys are coming off a solid performance at the Brewster Bears Classic where they finished 4th in the Varsity 3 race and 14th overall with an average time of 18:26.97, placing Pat Wortner, Brendan Wortner, and George Epstein 4th, 6th, and 46th overall. Hastings finished 11th out of 11 teams in the Varsity 1 race and 22nd overall with a 19:11.80 average, and top runner Jared Scarf was 88th.
The Hastings girls were ranked number 20 in the New York Class C ratings but dropped out this week when they failed to finish four runners at Brewster with #3 Emily Polstein out of action. Nora Howe, Emma Sanders, and Lauren Wilt ran good races for the Yellowjackets finishing 13th, 24th, and 53rd overall. Their big issue is depth at the moment. The Eagles took 2nd in the Varsity 3 race at Brewster and 13th overall with a 22:39.10 average time. Sarah King, Lauren Hanley, and Shanna Yue finished 6th, 57th and 62nd overall.
Looks like another perfect day for running, and it should be a spirited race.
