WAPPINGERS FALLS — South Lewis eighth-grader Brynn Bernard claimed a fifth-place finish at the New York State Federation cross-country meet Saturday at Bowdoin Park.
Bernard turned in a time of 18 minutes, 45.3 seconds on the hilly 5-kilometer course that was in great shape for late November.
“It was perfect out there, in the 50s, and she ran her best race of the season,” South Lewis coach Jack Bernard said.
Norwood-Norfolk sophomore Maddie Dineen finished 19th with a time of 19:15.4 and South Jefferson sophomore Alexa Doe was 37th with a mark of 19:36.4. The top 40 finishers received medals.
Canton senior Arianna Whittaker placed 81st with a time of 20:30.4.
North Rockland senior Katelyn Tuohy won the girls race with a time 17:02.5, which was 57.4 seconds ahead of her closest competition. Pittsford Mendon senior Sam Lawler won the boys race with a time of 15:57.2.
The Beaver River boys and South Lewis girls will compete at the Nike New York/Northeast Nationals on Saturday at the same Bowdoin Park venue.
