Rankings for Class B (Section 3) will be added later ... I'm not sure which teams will be competing in Class B this year. Last year, I believe both South Jefferson and Canastota moved up from Class C to Class B ... Canastota is NOT moving up this year ... South Jefferson is moving up.

Westhill is now Class B according to enrollment cut-offs ... they become my Pre-Season Favorite to win Class B. 

1999 Section 3 Class B Team Results:
 1. South Jefferson - 64
 2. Canastota - 112

Pre-Season 2000 Analysis

Westhill Westhill returns their entire Sectional team from last year. They finished a respectable 2nd to Skaneateles in Class C last year (27 to 76). Top runner Kayleigh Wheeless is simply outstanding ... and I'm very impressed by other Westhill runners (Kaitlin O'Sullivan, Emily Lemanczyk, Meghan McAnaney, Lynne Feeley, Elizabeth Jurkiewicz, and Ann Balch). I'm glad they are not Class D!
South Jefferson South Jefferson loses Erin Morgan, Rebecca Foulger, and Kristin Lister to graduation ... that hurts! However, they return outstanding runners Jessica and Melissa Lister ... other returning runners (Amanda Weikel, Cassaundra Mullin, and Sarah Wiiliams) may be able to fill the graduation void ... I've been told they have some very good runners moving up from junior high! South Jefferson will still be strong. South Jefferson moved from Class C to Class B last year and are moving up to Class B this year.
Canastota From last year's sectional race, Canastota loses only Larissa Hopkins to graduation. Coach Andy Pino has a very solid core of returning runners including Tracy Komrowski, Natalie Romer, Jennifer Ahlstrom, Christina Ahlstrom, Cara Gaglianese, and Tabitha Gaglianese. Tracy Komrowski and Natalie Romer are very good runners. Canastota can be expected to move from Class C to Class B again this year because they are a real contender.
Jordan Elbridge J-E loses Karina Chapman and Beth Jordan to graduation (their #3 and #5 runners from sectionals). Returning runners Katie Merrill, Julie Norman, Kayla Nimmo, and Alicia MacDowell are very solid ... but J-E appears to need some help from last year's junior high team, and I don't know anything about their prospects.
New Hartford New Hartford loses Annie Herbowy and Jessica Tyluki to graduation ... but they returning some talented runners (Katie Luker, Mary Cook, Adrienne Spartano, Kristine Scaglione, and Rachel Rossi). Katie Luker is one of the top Class B runners.
Homer Junior Tracey Brauksieck is easily the best runner in Class B ... it sure helps the team score to start out with a '1'. In addition to Tracey, Homer returns junior Emily Ames and sophomores Jen Battista, and Ashley Keith. With some help from last year's junior high team, Homer may be a contender to win the sectionals. Not only has Coach Jerry Frare had team success in the past, he has lots of experience coaching great runners ... currently Tracey, and somebody named Michelle Franklin before that.
