Barker cross country fares well in state meet


QUEENSBURY — Junior Hayden Hathaway led Barker with a time of 16:51, as the Raider boys cross country team closed its season with a strong effort at the Class D state meet at Queensbury HS on Saturday afternoon.
Hathaway finished in 28th place overall, 1:05 behind winner Jeremy Spiezio of Greenwich HS, who clocked in at 15:46.
Mount Academy (Section IX) won the team title, led by junior Keith Baird, who finished fourth overall at 16:05.
Barker junior Sergio Cruz was 39th with a time of 17:12.7, while Raider junior Bryce Moeller placed 40th at 17:17.2.
Barker junior Douglas Bachman was 51st at 17:30.1, and the Raiders’ Casey Webb was 58th at 17:39.1.
The Raider lineup was rounded out by junior Dustin Walters (66th-17:59.8) and junior Christopher Sweeney (69th-18:02.5). The field was comprised of 120 runners from Class D schools all across New York state.
Barker earned the right to send a full lineup of seven runners to the state meet by emerging victorious in the Section VI meet at Long Point State Park in Bemus Point on Nov. 1.
