Johnsburg Cross-Country update

— The weather report was not for a smooth running day. The clouds, the wind and the sleet/rain were our pre-race signs. The Johnsburg Cross-Country team was warming up for the Adirondack league championships at Queensbury High School on Thursday, Oct. 24. The Johnsburg Harriers have been plagued by injury, but were ready to provide a peak performance at this race. The girl’s varsity runners fought the headwind from the start. Gillian Hayden and Yana Kinblom took off like a rifle. This was strong field of girls. Gillian Hayden ended in a strong sixth place to earn a spot on the Adirondack League All Stars. This success was repeated by our boys team. Terry Allard ran with a group of about 15 strong runners to the 2 mile mark, then made his move. This was against a team shooting for the State Championship (Corinth). Terry pulled ahead of a few of these runners to place tenth with a personal best time. Congratulations to Terry Allard and Gillian Hayden for making the Adirondack League All-Stars. Their next test was the Section 2 Championships at Queensbury High on Friday, Nov. 1.
