Strong finish for X-C team

Competing against the Adirondack League’s finest distance runners, Whitehall’s top runners garnered all-star status on the virtue of their top-five finishes at the league championships.

Taryn Tracy finished in third place in the girls race while PJ Ferguson finished fifth in the boys race.

Tracy, who is one of only two girls on the team’s roster and often has to run with the boys in practice, ran perhaps her best race of the season.

Tracy covered the 3.1-mile race in 23:36.60. North Warren’s Megan Erickson and Lake George’s Erika Abrantes were the only two runners to finish ahead of Tracy.

Her time was almost two minutes faster than it was at last year’s league championships when she finished 11th.

Ferguson, the defending Adirondack League champion, finished the race in a time of 18:02.45. Corinth’s Tanner Flint won the race with a time of 17:09.62. His teammate Dervin Akerley finished second and Lake George’s Dan Jardine was third.

As a team, the boys finished fifth out of seven teams.

Andreas Meyer-Giesow finished 27th (20:54.74), David Greenough 32nd (21:28.63), Tyler Sweenor 36th (21:43.65) and Dylan Wolford finished 40th (22:11.48) to round out the top five for Whitehall.

Haley Wiskoski finished 29th in the girl’s race with a time of 28:24.41.

The Railroaders will compete in at the Section II championships in Saratoga Springs tomorrow. The girls race will begin at 11:30 a.m. and the boys at 1:30 p.m.
