NEW YORK – On October 25, the Galena Growlers traveled to Central Park, Schenectady to scrimmage race against three Albany Area Teams:  The Niskayuna School team, the Mohawk Mountain Goats and the R-Cubed teams.  The Middle School kids raced on an approximate four mile course, where the High Schools raced over the same course, extending a portion of it for a total of five miles per lap.  

Middle school(MS) groups raced either three or two laps depending on category.  High school(HS) groups ran three laps (Varsity/JV) with the Sophomore/Freshman class racing two laps.  The middle school kids raced in the chilly morning air, with the high school groups pedaling off at 1 p.m.  

There was no team scoring, just individual results.
