Warrensburg's Brody Olden has been the runner to beat all season long and he lived up to the advanced billing. After qualifying for states a year ago Olden took the next step toward a return trip by winning the Adirondack League Cross Country championship Thursday afternoon at Queensbury High School.
Olden completed the 3.1 mile course in a time of 17:42.97, an average of 5:42 per mile.
Lake George placed eight runners in the top10. James Richard and Liam Stack Fahey were second and third for the Warriors. Quinn Johnson of Granville-Whitehall was fourth and Jason Ludlow of Lake George fifth.
Rounding out the top 10 were Caden Willett, Oliver Herrick, Brendan Battersea-Manna, Sam Burns, and Cameron Hoffic, all of Lake George.
Lake George won the team championship over Granville, Corinth/Hadley-Luzerne and Hartford.
