Coach Brian Kiely talks with senior Ben Karkoski. Kiely is retiring after this season.
continued “We like what we have seen so far in our practices,” he added. “We hope to be competitive with most of the CVAC teams. Saranac should have a very good boys team and Peru, Plattsburgh, and Seton should also be fairly strong. Our overall success will depend on some of our younger runners developing to give help to our more experienced ones.”
With Kiely announcing his retirement, this will be a transition year for Ticonderoga cross country. Jay Wells, who has coaches the Ti girls team the past several seasons, will coach the boys modified this fall in preparation for taking over the boys program in 2012.
