Women's Cross-Country Brings Home Regional Title

On the frigid and damp morning of Saturday October 29th the Herkimer Generals Women’s cross-country team ran their way to Head Coach Steve Sydoriw’s first Regional Championship title.  Herkimer had four runners finish in the top ten which also earned them a spot on the All-Region team this season.  Freshman Chyanna Bernier finished in first place, freshman Tiffany Amentler finished in 3rd place, sophomore Gabby Bridgewater finished 6th and sophomore Sharon Howell finished 9th.  Come support the Generals as they now turn their sights towards the National Championship race 10 a.m. Saturday November 12th at Finger Lakes Community College in Canandaigua, NY.

Q&A with Coach Sydoriw:

How have you prepared your athletes for the post season races physically, mentally and emotionally?

"Physically our girls have been working hard all year trying to cut their times off from race to race. The men have helped as well since our girls run with our guys in practice to make friendly competition amongst the two. Mentally we encourage our runners to stay positive and believe in themselves. Even though the weather has been rainy and cold lately our girls know that everyone deals with the same conditions. Emotionally I think they are really confident now since they won Regionals and with Nationals coming up the girls have already ran that course earlier in the season."

How have your athletes reacted to the pressures of the post season?

"I know some of them were very nervous going in to Regionals since they won the Conference and knowing they had a chance to win Regionals. I told them “if you beat your times from previous races and run your best there is really nothing you can do but hope for the best.”  I was pretty happy since four of our runners earned All Region and even happier to win Regionals."
