New Info!!!

MileSplit will be visiting NHS at 11 AM on Friday, July 28th. If you are around come prepared to run!

UPDATE: Hotels have been reserved for the Wayne Invy and Manhattan. Cost will be about $100 per athlete to cover the bus and room. Only qualifiers will be registered into these meets. We most likely will not be running in freshmen events, so if you qualify you would be in JV or Varsity. The same is true with the Bowdoin Park Classic. The fee for this will be about $40 to cover the cost of the charter bus.

Questions regarding the modified team can be addressed to me, but you should also include Coach Moran at moranem@bonaventure.edu since she is the actual modified coach.

Consider downloading the STRAVA app to your phone or computer and join the Niskayuna XCTF group so that everyone can chart each others progress!
