Men's Cross Country Places Second at Conference Meet

Hudson Valley at Conference Meet (at Adirondack)
2nd Place
Cross Country

SUNY Adirondack hosted the Mountain Valley Collegiate Conference Championship Meet on Saturday, October 21st at Queensbury High School. 4 cross country programs traveled to Queensbury to partake in the event, namely Herkimer, Mohawk Valley, Hudson Valley and Fulton Montgomery joined by the Timberwolves. 

The men's race saw a slightly larger field and 5 teams vying for the right to claim top MVCC cross country program with an 11:00am start time. Mohawk Valley, Hudson Valley, Herkimer, Fulton Montgomery and SUNY Adirondack lined up teams at the start. The race looked like a showdown between Mohawk Valley and Herkimer early as they dominated the front pack through much of the race. Only SUNY Adirondack's Brian Halligan broke up the one on one party in the front with a 5th place finish. Herkimer's Jake Baisley took the top spot with Mohawk Valley's Brady Sanfilippo and Dakota Corney following closely for 2nd and 3rd. Kyle Homes rounded out the front pack with a 4th place finish for Herkimer, setting them up for a strong finish. Mohawk Valley cemented their place with a 6th place finish from Austin Cady, but that is where it started to get dicey. Hudson Valley had such a strong showing in the second pack that they were able to jump Herkimer for second place with 7th, 9th, 10th and 11th and 15th place finishes. Herkimer finished in third place with 16th, 21st and 22nd place finishes. Mohawk Valley was able to fend off the consistency of Hudson Valley with an 8th and 13th place finish.
