Ti harrier wins SUNYAC

A trio of Ticonderoga High School graduates led SUNY-Geneseo to the State University of New York men's cross country championship Oct. 31.

Lee Berube won the 8-kilometer race in 25 minutes, 12.7 seconds for the Blue Devils. Berube, a sophomore from Ti, led Geneseo to 29 points. Cortland was second with 44.

Jesse Berube, Lee's brother, was ninth in 26:08.14. He's a senior.

Lee Gabler, also a senior from Ticonderoga, was 53rd for Geneseo in 28:07.

Lee Berube earned first-team All-SUNYAC honors with his first place finish. Jesse Berube was named second-team All-SUNYAC.

Lee Berube won the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D championship as a senior at Ti High in 2007.

Ti High has produced two other state champions, both in track and field. Jeremy Hall won the boys discus about 15 years ago and Andrea Staepel won the girls 800-meter run in 1998.

Ticonderoga has never had a team win a state championship.
