The weather was perfect and the races were fast.  The Freshmen saw a tremendous improvement as the 1st 2 runners break 10 minutes on the new course. The Varsity also posted some great times as we had 6 runners in the top 50 for the varsity race.  It marks the triumphant return to Van Cortlandt of Dom Brockway. The sophomores continue to show great improvement as a squad. Still missing Frosh B times will update when I get them. 

9/13 Guilderland Invitational-  Despite a 7 hour Odyssey to get to Albany, the team runs some very competitive times on a very difficult course.  Jordan Elie- Vieux post A #2ATX for this course, with 6 of the Varsity breaking 17 minutes.  Lost of slipping and sliding through the forest.  Ivan Caesar makes his cross country debut and leads the JV to a 6th Place finish. He also picks up the first medal of the season.

9/13 Regis Invitational- The season starts off with some good performances by the underclassmen. The freshmen are led by Greg Watch and John Maiocco as they brave the newly altered Freshmen course.  The Sophs were paced by the trio of Conroy, DeLorezno and Netland
