Ferguson leads the way

 

The Whitehall Cross Country team held a meet with North Warren and Hadley Luzerne at the Valley View Golf Course on Oct. 18 that served as a tune-up for the teams as they begin to prepare for the crucial end of the season meets.

Sophomore PJ Ferguson won another race as he continues to establish himself as a threat at the league championships and beyond.

Ferguson completed the abbreviated two mile race (the course is typically 2.7 miles) in 11:11, 47 seconds faster than North Warren’s Ian Underwood.

Toran Tracy turned in perhaps his best performance of the season finishing in third place with a time of 12:05. Tyler Perry finished just outside the top 10 in 11th place.

Taryn Tracy once again led the way for the girls, finishing in sixth place with a time of 15:21 in a very close race. Only 13 second separated the fourth and seventh place finishers.

Victoria Koeble finished eighth with a time of 16:30 and Marion Gendron finished 11th at 20:08.

Ferguson turned in another strong effort last Friday in the Greenwich Invitational held in Saratoga Springs.

Ferguson placed seventh in the highly competitive race, covering the 3.1 mile race in 16:49.

Fonda won both the boys and girls races. Schuylerville finished third in the boys race behind Fonda and Kingston.

The Railroaders were scheduled to run Thursday in the league championship meet at Queensbury, and then will begin preparing for the Section II championship, which will be held on Nov. 4 back in Saratoga Springs.
