Cross country is no longer something athletes use to get in shape for other sports, at least not to Amity boys coach Bob Orgovan.
“We don’t get (other athletes) that much anymore,” he said. “Years ago it used to be like that.”
Orgovan said in the past he’s had players basketball players, hockey players and even wrestlers. However, the majority of his runners are focused on running. He said it is common for an athlete to use cross country for track, but no other sport.
