Once agin, the SUNY Oneonta Athletic department's website has a terrific wrap-up article for the hard core details. I tried to my best to get around and get pictures, though it can be difficult being an engaged fan (cheering and paying attention to your team) and take pictures. Events such as today's are to be watched and savored, so that was the approach I took for much of the race.
