1999 Boys Cross-Country Team

The 1999 boys cross country team culminated their season with a Class B New York State title under the guidance of their coach, Chip Button. After being behind after the first mile, the team swept through the field and finished in a very tight pack, led by Dan Crespin in 22nd place. The win was a great example of a total team effort and what believing in something can accomplish.

The team finished first place at the Section 2 Class B Championships over Queensbury and Scotia, and had a strong second place finish at the Suburban Council Championships. The team enjoyed a first place win at the Guilderland Invitational, and fifth place at the McQuaid Invitational. The dual meet record was 7-2, including a win over Shenendehowa, and a tie with Saratoga, which BH-BL lost on a tiebreaker.

Members of the 1999 team were Chris Camp, Dan Crespin, Chris Dolen, Joe Duchane, Ben Pangie, Matt Reilly, and Dave Reinhardt.
