2018 Cross Country
Girls Sectional Preview

Note: As I say every year, this is just a projection. It's pretty much everyone's best Saratoga State Park times and some adjustments where I felt it was needed. I have no knowledge of runners that are out injured so I included just about everyone that has run but I have left out some runners that have been out for multiple weeks. Class A was much more difficult this year since the Suburban Council cancelled their championships.

Girls: Class A, Class B, Class C, Class D

Girls Class A - 11:30am


What to looks for: Looks to be a three team battle with Saratoga getting the edge over Shenendehowa and Niskayuna but it's anyone's game. Saratoga Springs' Kelsey Chmiel is the defending champion and a big favorite to repeat. Teammate Ella Kurto, Ballston Spa's Faith Demars, and Niskayuna's Liyat Kebbede should battle it out for the runner-up spot.

Girls Class B - 12:00pm


What to looks for: Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake is going for their fifth straight title but they are really going to be challenged by Mohonasen. Burnt Hills has the slight edge but it is basically a toss up. Individually, Burnt Hills' Rory Graham comes in with the best time with teammate Emily Berg right behind. Mohonasen's duo of Kate Sherman and Emma Sinisgalli will be right behind to challenge them.

Girls Class C - 12:30pm


  What to looks for: Greenwich moves up from Class D but doesn't change much for them as they should easily take home their 15th straight sectional title. Tight race for second as Cobleskill-Richmondville and Schuylerville are close and will battle each other for the Class CC title. Individually, Greenwich's Nina Sgambelluri and Brynne Wright are more than 40 seconds ahead of everyone else and will battle it out for the title.

Girls Class D - 11:00am


What to looks for: Duanesburg moves back down after spending a year in Class C and is the favorite to win their first sectional title since 2014. Hoosic Valley and Berlin should battle for second and possibly first if Duanesburg falters. Mayfield's Madison Relyea and Duanesburg's Elaine Atanasova should fight for the individual title with Relyea the favorite to move up after a runner up finish last year.
