Garnets and Panthers Hit the Ground Running … Fast

September 21, 2010

Rye and Rye Neck’s cross-country teams began their 2010 campaigns September 14 at Briarcliff in dazzling fashion, emerging as the elite squads in a dual meet including the host school as well as Blind Brook and Harrison.

The Panthers edged the Garnets 34 to 38 on the boys’ side, but Rye’s top runners took three of the top five finishes. Taylor Love, a junior, won the three-mile race in a time of 19:13.9, which was a little over three seconds ahead of his senior teammate, Mason Curtis.

“It was a good start for us today,” said Curtis, a State finalist one year ago who hopes to make it back come season’s end. “We moved up to Class A, but our goal is to overcome that and win our league again.”
