East Aurora's loaded girls cross country team will pursue its thirs straight state championship in Class B Saturday at Norwood-Norfolk High School in the North Country of Section X. The outstanding Armory Track site will have coverage.
It should be a busy next three weekends for EA: the states are followed by the Federation meet at Bowdoin State Park in Wappingers Falls on Nov. 17, and the Nike Team Nationals New York championships will be held in conjunction with the NTN Northeast Regional at Bowdoin on Nov. 24. The top two boys and girls teams in the NTN New York race will qualify for the national championships in Portland, Ore., on Dec. 1
The East Aurora boys will also represent Section VI in Class B. Other boys teams headed to the states are Clarence (AA), Hamburg (A), Wilson (C) and Barker (D) while the other girls teams are West Seneca West (AA), Starpoint (A), Akron (C), Maple Grove (D).
Putting the EA girls in the above poll might have been a little unfair to the rest of the schools. Tell us the why behind your vote by clicking "comments" at the bottom of this post. When you vote, you'll see the current results; polls close at the starting time of Saturday's meet.
