Leading off today:
We're going to rate Katelyn Tuohy's first major outing of the cross country season as a success.
The North Rockland senior set a course record en route to winning the Great American Cross Country Festival in Cary, North Carolina, on Saturday. The two-time Nike Cross Nationals champion toured the 3.1-mile course in 16:22.8 to knock 13 seconds off the girls course record set by Nevada Mareno in 2015.
"Course records are course records. They're not a big deal," she said. "But it's really fun traveling down here. It's just a fun trip for us."
Tuohy finished 42 seconds ahead of runner-up Jenna Hutchins of Johnson City, Tennessee, in her first all-out run in a competitive situation since the NYSPHSAA track and field championships in June. Feeling worn down by illness and the rigors of a heavy course load, she shut down her season rather than competing in assorted national meets.
"I think she was even more anxious than I was," North Rockland coach Brian Diglio said. "It's been a long time since she felt healthy and able to give a big effort."
North Rockland placed nine out of 23 teams from eight states and will head to the Manhattan Invitational next weekend.
Speaking of records: Junior Brooke Rauber lowered her record for her home course en route to winning the Tully Invitational. Rauber led her team to a narrow 54-59 win over South Lewis by winning the Tully Invitational in 17:14.3.
Her record there was 17:46.7 in muddy conditions a year ago.
Sophomore Lexi Bernard (18:22.1) and eighth-grader Brynn Bernard (18:30.3) took the next spots behind Rauber.
More cross country: Cornwall's girls pulled out a 136-138 victory over Niskayuna in their division of the Paul Short Run at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Cornwall freshman Karrie Baloga took individual honors in 16:59.7.
• Shaker eighth-grader Leonni Griffin pulled away from teammate Tori Mariano down the stretch to successfully defend at the 81st Grout Invitational, covering 2.75 miles in 15:25.71. Greenwich packed five finishers in the top nine to edge Shaker for team honors.
• Carmel junior Katie Turk had the top girls time (18:17.3) in the 42nd Brewster Bear Classic. Running in a different division, North Salem junior Ava Jolley posted a 18:19.7 clocking for her fourth consecutive invitational victory of the season.
New Paltz's Riley Brutvan captured the boys Varsity I race in 15:47.3.
Boys soccer: Cooper LaValley converted a first-half penalty and Greece Arcadia defeated host Spencerport 1-0 in the title game of the Broadbent-Selander Tournament.
Spencerport, ranked 19th in the state in Class AA, had won 10 straight since an opening-game loss.
• Aidan Wood tallied in the first overtime as Keshequa, ranked sixth in Class C, escaped with a 2-1 win over Perry.
