Queensbury Invitational

QUEENSBURY - Matthew Hoffman finished third with a time of 16:06.16, leading the Fonda-Fultonville boys to a ninth-place finish in the large-school race at the Queensbury Invitational.

Although BEDS numbers would have placed the Braves in the small-school division, coach Mark Therrien said he asked race officials to put his team in the large-school division to give them a more difficult challenge.

The Braves finished with 254 points. Arlington won the event with 70 points.

"They did well with it," Therrien said.

Tyler Angioli was 32nd with a time of 17:03.31 and Jimmy Westman was 45th in 17:21.28. Omijah Piening was 83rd in 17:57.90 and Cameron Gilligan was 91st with a time of 18:08.70. Dylan DeSorbo was 107th with a time of 18:45.90 and Jacob Shave was 153rd with a time of 21:00.60.
