John Nepolitan writes: It was a stepping stone for US#1 Fayetteville-Manlius girls, a prelude to possible 3-peat in Portland.  They make it look easy with 3-4-5-6-7 finish and 13-second spread.  Shen boys overcome fall of #2 runner. 

Alex Hatz led the Manlius NY boys to a runner-up finish and trip to Portland OR with his 15:53 victory.

Which New York power will NOT make national finals?  That's the tough question.  Four girls teams are ranked in the US top 25 and only 2 can be automatic qualifiers.  Fay-Man girls, Shen boys heavy favorites; after that it's a tossup.  John Nepolitan preview

Team Rankings Shen boys, F-M girls remain #1 after off week before regional meet.
