OXC Women at Yellowjacket Invite
In a change from last year's college cross-country invitationals, this year the men's races go off before the women's. Last year, because I was unfamiliar with the courses, I enjoyed watching the Oneonta Women's team race so that I could get a sense as to where the best vantage points were. Well that, and they were very good.
This year, I have found myself staying to watch them compete because once again they have a strong squad and occasionally, saw as the case at this weekend's Yellowjacket Invitational sponsored by the University of Rochester at Genesee Valley Park. As an added bonus, there were athletes competing for other schools that I coached when they ran in high school, so it was nice to see both Oneonta's teams, and my former student-athletes have a measure of success at the meet.
