Successful first season in Chenango County

CHENANGO COUNTY – The Chenango Composite Bullthistles traveled to Lippman Park, Wawarsing, NY on Sunday, June 12 for the final race of the season, the New York State Championship race.

"We had five racers compete, Scott Lord of Greene in the junior varsity race, Stanton Baker of Plymouth in the freshman race, Alex Trifunovic of Greene, Noah Bufalini of Norwich and Ethen Eldred of Sherburne in the middle school eighth grade race, said coach Rob Baker. "The event was moved from Round Top, New York on June 5, to Lippman Park due to the Round Top event being cancelled due to inclement weather. The team fought off the trials and tribulations of flat tires and crashes and all racers completed each of their events."

• Lippman Race:

In the eighth grade race, two of the three riders experienced flat tires during the race. Alex Trifunovic finished in 15th place, Ethen Eldred finished 20th and Noah Bufalini 22nd out of 24 total riders.
