A day earlier, CBA had to face Skaneateles and Marcellus just two days removed from appearing at the Manhattan Invitational. As such, Brendan Smith, who won his race at Van Cortlandt Park, sat out the meet.
CBA’s girls team lost 20-49 to both the Mustangs and host Lakers, as Megan Pierce finished in a time of 19:13, third behind Marcellus’ Rachel Garn (18:39) and Skaneateles’ Madeline Adams (18:55). Alexis Buck worked her way to 10th place in 21:01.
Without Smith, CBA’s boys fell to Skaneateles 24-35 and lost to Marcellus 16-47, only seeing one runner, David Carey, contend as he took fifth place in 17:44.
All of these teams were present Saturday at Jamesville Beach Park, site of the Section III meet on Nov. 5, for Saturday’s Chittenango Invitational.
Smith won again, in boys Varsity Race 1, his time of 16:47.9 exactly 15 seconds better than Baldwinsville’s Alec Peinkofer. As a team, CBA was 10th, but J-D sneaked into fourth place as Harron finished 12th, in 17:58.4, and Hohreiter was 15th in 18:05.8. Healy was 39th in 18:46.4.
