F-M runner sweep cross country regional meet

Avery wins girls race in 18:05.3; Pearl takes third place

The Hornets had, of course, skipped the Federation meet after winning the state Class A title on Nov. 9 at Queensbury, edging Northport on that day, too. Three weeks later, the results repeated themselves.

Bryce Millar, the individual state Class A champion, got to fourth place in this race in 15 minutes, 45.2 seconds, but that put him second among team runners behind Northport’s Mike Brannigan, whose 15:29.9 also made him the individual race winner.

Andrew Berge finished in 15:45.7, half a second behind Millar and third among team runners (fifth overall), while Peter Ryan took eighth place in the team event and 12th overall in 15:58.2.

Kyle Barber continued to improve, as his time of 16:15.7 put him 16th in the team standings and 21st overall, while Adam Hunt rounded out the scoring column in 16:26.8, 19th among team runners and 24th in the larger race. Riley Hughes was 44th in 17:15.7 and Patrick Perry, in 17:36.2, earned 64th place.

With that work accomplished, it was time for the Hornets to make the long flight to Portland, with the F-M girls going after an eighth consecutive national championship and the boys wanting to climb to the top, too.
