SARANAC LAKE — Jeriqho Gadway set a new course record Tuesday as the Plattsburgh High boys’ cross country tream defeated AuSable Valley 18-43 and Saranac Lake 20-41.

Gadway won the race in 16 minutes, 39 seconds, beating the previous record of 16:40 by Peru’s Dan Lennon. Connor Coda (19:28) and Robert Matthews (19:53) also finished in the top five for the Hornets.

Zane Pelletieri took third in 19:34 to pace Saranac Lake in its 24-32 victory over AuSable Valley.

“Our veteran boys’ crew used their experience to their advantage today during the race and passed other teams at strategic positions,” Saranac Lake coach Joe Merrihew said.

Austin Smith led AuSable Valley with a fouth-place showing (19:47).

Claire Deshaies took first in the girls’ race in 22:25, leading Plattsburgh to a 17-41 victory over AuSable Valley and a 23-32 win over Saranac Lake. The Hornets placed three other runners in the top five: Makenzie Baker (23:17), Alyssa Rector (23:21) and Ella Archer (24:08).

Johanna Mohrs was second (22:56), helping a short-handed Saranac Lake team defeat AuSable Valley 34-32.

“The girls’ team continues to grow in strength, and I am excited to see what we can do a month from now,” Merrihew said.
