Cross country no secondary sport

The Amity girls, above, are getting ready for another successful season.

By Henry Chisholm

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.

Check out more of this story and the top area cross country runners to watch this season.
