Each year the teams are made up of each section's first non-individual event qualifiers in the 300, 600, 1000 & 1500 meter runs from their respective state qualifying meets. The Section III team was made up of Senior Cady Barns (Fayetteville-Manlius), Sophomore Camryn Stone (Central Valley Academy), Freshman Gianna Capoccia (RFA) and Junior Eva Borton (Clinton). Borton anchored the event running the final leg (a 1600) in 5:05.74 to bring section III's team from 4th to first, passing the second place team's anchor for good with just over 100 meters to go! This makes the second Section III "team" State Championship for Borton this season as she was the highest scoring member for the Section III class C State Championship Cross Country team earlier this year.
