VERONA — An individual championship may have eluded Saratoga Springs’ elite runners at the New York State cross country meet at Vernon-Verona-Sherrill High School on Saturday, but there was no way to prevent the Blue Streaks from repeating easily in Class A. women’s tag team champion.
Led by four top-10 runners, Saratoga Springs sizzled through muddy conditions to score 23 points, well ahead of runner-up Fayetteville-Manlius with 79 points. The team, ranked No. 1 in the nation, gathered near the bleachers adjacent to one of the facility’s playing fields after the race and shared a long team hug with coaches Art and Linda Kranick. .
