FAYETTEVILLE-MANLIUS - Five First Men
They personify team. They run for each other. They race as one. You could even say that FM is a team of five first men.
Northeast editor Don Rich's story tells why Fayetteville-Manlius NY is the #1 team in the nation and how they got a 9-second spread in the New York Federation championships.
Foot Locker Northeast preview
Girls - Could it be a year of Foot Locker firsts?
Three girls from one team. Two homeschooled athletes.
Can Aislinn Ryan catch Nicole Blood a 2nd time this season?

Both US#1 teams were in this race -- Saratoga girls and Fayetteville-Manlius boys -- and both won, so the interesting fights were for second. F-M boys 34 (3 4 8 9 10 with 9 second spread), NE#3 Lockport 152 (6 26 31 32 57)), Burnt Hills Ballston Lake 186 (7 25 27 59 68), NE#10 Saratoga 208 (18 29 38 58 65)). Saratoga girls 22 (1 3 5 6 7), Shenendehowa 142, Bethlehem 145, NE#2 Bay Shore 148, NE#5 Hilton 151, NE#6 Cicero North Syracuse 166.
- Don Rich report:
Saratoga - "it was the margin that was remarkable."
Fayetteville-Manlius - if you thought Manhattan was crazy, look at this.
OK, the 12-second spread that Fayetteville-Manlius unleashed on an unsuspecting Manhattan Invitational field in October was pretty impressive. Well, try just 9 seconds at Feds.
An opposing coach admires Fayetteville-Manlius:
"Kind of like they peaked all season"
"Knowing how difficult it is to have five or more runners 'peak' at one point in time, their performance is even more impressive. Kind of like they peaked all season! Great dedication, team chemistry (at least looking in from the outside) and probably some pretty decent coaching too!" --- Lockport NY coach Bob Eberhardt after his team, and every other NY boys' team was soundly defeated by US#1 Fayetteville-Manliuis at the NY Federation Championships 11/20.

Ohio harriers swept the individual and team titles on home turf in Kettering, Ohio, but the one individual champ was somewhat of an upset.
As predicted in the preview by Mike Bauman, Troy OH SR Levi Fox would be in the mix with pre-race favorite Jeff See of Middletown, OH. Fox won in a convincing 15:37, with Cedar Springs MI SR Dan Cramer 2nd in 15:44, Greenville PA SR Jed Christiansen 3rd a second back, and See, 4th in 15:48. The Ohio boys tallied 37 points.
